Fortunately, there is a new race series out there which is trying to rid this wonderful distance of that stigma. It is called the 13.1 Series. With 8 races, this inaugural series of themed half marathons "will be serving some of America's top running communities with a stand-alone half marathon for locals to embrace and visitors to experience."
Which is why I am honored and fortunate to have been asked to be the featured speaker at the 13.1 Miami Beach race this weekend in sunny Florida. With a course that starts on beautiful Miami Beach, gives runners a little taste of a hill to use different leg muscles, doubles back on itself so runners of all speeds will get to exchange greetings and then ends on the beachway promenade, I am having a difficult time finding a flaw!
There are still spots available for either the 13.1 one race or the new 5k. Click on the logo below to register.
Also, stay tuned here for even more information with my participation at this series as the races continue to grow!
