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.

This is not the one that follows Route 66. That would the be MotherRoad Marathon/Half Marathon that was held a couple of weeks ago. There is also the Route 66 event in Oklahoma.

However, the Joplin Memorial Run is just as awesome ;)) Registration is $45 through tomorrow. Guess I better get myself signe up!

And, for the record, I am in no way affiliated with organizing the JMR. Just a huge fan!

Is this one that follows some of Route 66? I may want to consider it for my Missouri race.

Hi all!! I am new to this team and am so excited to learn from & share with all of you!!!

I wanted to take a minute to invite you to join us in the Joplin Memorial running events coming up in May 2013!!

http://www.joplinmemorialrun.com/

This will be the 2nd year for the run and proceeds go to help rebuild our city after the May 22, 2011 EF5 tornado ravaged through and wiped out 1/3 of our city.

The event is very well done with hope and excitement floating at EVERY water station!! Great scenery on the way too!

Hope to see YOU there :)
