Well, I did it. I landed on Jupiter Saturday. Four HMs in four weeks. Oddly the first and last were the tough ones. The middle two went great. I think I'm done with so many so close. A little too much for my old body. But I loved the challenge and meeting my goal. I'm happy to be sporting four moons on the HF Asylum page.

It pales in comparison to most of you, but I'm still excited that I think I finally found my 4th HM in Sept. to move me up to 4 moons (Jupiter). Fingers crossed I can manage this.

I got my 10 moons in Half Fanatics for doing 52 half marathons in 365 days in Feb 2012. I will be entering Marathon Maniacs at 1 star, and hanging out there for a long time, soon. I did my qualifiers and I am waiting until the MM number I want comes up.

Congrats to everyone who moved up!

I've been MIA lately, so sorry for that! My injury has had me down and I stayed away from running teams because it made it worse. LOL
I felt fine in Mid-April and did my double weekend... jumped 2 stars in the Maniacs from Silver (2 stars) to Iridium (4 stars) by doing a 50K on Saturday, April 14th and a marathon on Sunday, April 15th!

Looking at my September schedule, it appears I could skip right from Neptune to Jupiter if I find one more HM in the first 23 days of the month. Currently I have Sept. 1, 15, and 22 - so I'm looking for something probably the weekend of the 8-9. Any ideas? It would have to be within driving distance for me (upper midwest - preferably WI, IL, MN).

I just realized, after counting days... I will move up to 3 MM stars in March when I do the Albany Marathon. That will be 4 marathons in 4 states within 51 days (it'll be 49 days!).

Jan 15 - Louisiana
Feb 5 - Tallahassee (Florida)
Feb 12 - Mercedes (Alabama)
March 3 - Albany (Georgia)

Of course, with our double coming up in April, I'll hit 4 stars... so the 3 will be short-lived.. but still nice to know I'll get there. LOL

I have one little moon in HF and will probably stay that way for some time. I just am not sure how it will come together to get more without traveling. Too bad Goofy doesn't count for anything :)

The two HM's I want to do are in Marion, IA and then Rockford, IL the next day. I am going to need to sweet talk hubby in maybe being the official driver. At worst, it will be me and Emily sharing driving time. Oh the things we do.

Nice Laurie!! I am supposed to do B2B's to get into the Fanatics! Still trying to figure out another way thought, because I really want to do the full at Snickers. But right now the plan is Snickers Half on March 3rd and Seaside Half on March 4th.

A thread for updating our progress with gaining Half Fanatics Moons and Marathon Maniacs Stars!!

I got to 2 stars in the Maniacs on November 12th! Finally gained a star! LOL. Apparently, I had done 8 marathons in 365 days. Cool!!
