|Hopefully Liz Hurley will bring PR's for both of us again this year|
I've registered for everything but The Biggest Loser Half so that leaves 5 open weekends until my marathon and one of those is our annual football game reunion weekend with many of our college friends but honestly I wouldn't have it any other way. I won't miss any of my Auburn football games and I shouldn't miss watching any of my NFL Fantasy Football player's games either. Running and football is what fall is all about, right?! Well, that and pumpkin spice lattes, cooler weather, and the holidays.
Just in case you'd like to make a trip to Huntsville, AL, for the half or full this might help sway you. For the Huntsville Half the cost is only $26 until August 15 and $36 until October 1. You receive a long sleeve finisher's tech shirt, a medal, and there are even door prizes! Rocket City Marathon is $60 until August 31 and $75 until September 30. Both are great deals in my opinion!

For the Talladega Half Marathon I am traveling with 3wheel Athletics and you can too if you are interested in participating in that half. They will handle everything from registering you for the race, race day transportation, and hotels if you wish to stay overnight.
