Nike Women’s Marathon and Half Marathon

Posted by Filed Under: Marathons, Video, Women's Running

On Sunday I will cut short a weekend of debauchery and beach walking to toe the line at the Nike Women’s Half Marathon. I could skip it and just hang out with my bookgroup but I won’t. I will rise at some obscene hour of the morning and hit the road at 5:00 AM to make sure I am ready to go when the gun goes off at 7:00 AM.

This is a truly remarkable event that celebrates women, women’s health and that is focused on raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. If you ever decide to train with TNT I highly recommend this race. It is beautiful and fun, raises money for a great cause and the ‘medal’ is a necklace from Tiffany. What more can you ask for in a race?

About 21stCenturyMom

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?
