I have not run St. Pete, but I'm doing the Nashville race for the third time this weekend. They put on a really great race! I think you are going to love your experience! Good luck and let us know how it goes!!!

The Rock N Roll is also on my list for 2013. I think the Iron GIrl will be somewhere in April (it was last year) and I should be recovered enough to run that one by then. I hope :)

I, too, plan my "few" races well in advance.

Think about the St. Pete's Rock n Roll HM in February. It is run on many of the same roads.

Yeah...me too! I can't believe most of these race events don't have their dates set more in advance. Especially if they hold them annually. Gives me something to motivate and plan for.

Yeah, I looked it up. To be honest I'm not sure what I am going to do after this one but I've been planning. I like to have my races planned well in advance.

This one only has a half and a 5k. They aren't doing the bike and swim. Should be similar to the Women's Half.

I don't think I'm up for an Iron anything. But it sounds fun!

I haven't run it but I am planning on doing the Women's Magazine 5K which I think runs the same weekend. I've been off my training for over a month so I won't be prepped for it (hence the 5k). I know the area and I've heard nothing but great things about it, so it should be a good day. I plan on doing the Iron Girl Half in Clearwater in the Spring. Is that on your agenda also?

I ran this race last year. The course was beautiful in many areas. Lots of "pink". Very organized!

Good luck on your first HM.... just have fun!!!!

Congrats on the first HM! I have not run the St. Pete HM myself but wishing you the best on your first HM!

Is anyone going to be at the Women's HM in St. Pete on Nov. 18th? I'm super excited since this is going to be my first half marathon. I was also wondering if anyone had run this course before. How was the atmosphere? Was it a fun race? Would love to hear about past experiences.
