I would love to do the Joplin Memorial Half next year! Last June I did the Boomtown Benefit Run here in St. Charles, IL (it was one of the runs to raise money for the recovery efforts). Each of our bibs had the name of someone who died as a result of the tornado. I still keep in touch on FB with a family from Joplin, so luckily they keep me in the loop about what's going on down there :).

I am in the Williams Route 66 in Tulsa on 18 November. I will be running the Half. I think in addition to my 50 States goal, I would like to run as many parts of the Mother Road as I can. So far I have run a race in Chicago, a stretch in Gallup, NM on a daily run, and about three miles on Santa Monica Blvd in LA, CA. Then there will be Tulsa.
Still, I have heard good things about this particular race from others who have run it. I will be put on the list for consideration for 2013.
