I was in the St Pete area nearly 10 years ago but never as a runner. I am excited to run this course and to see my aunts again after many many years. LOVE to hear it is a flat course - coming from Washington state - I have found our definition of "flat" is not like the rest of the world (our flat has inclines --- though relative to the mountains in our area I guess it is flat LOL). Maybe I will see you there. I am back of the packer. If not - have a GREAT race!!

Seabreeze - it was that coldest day of the year in 2012 that inspired me to run the Half this year.

You see, I was a water station volunteer. I was freezing! When the runners came by they looked to warm and happy that I vowed right then and there to run the next event, so on Feb 10th, I'm run/walking my first Half Marathon - woo-hoo!

MRSKOSITZ - Did you do it last year?

Not this year. Maybe next.

A little too far from me, though I will say that I'm surprised that the Rock n Roll event here in Tennessee is in Nashville and not Memphis. Ummm....err...Nashville is all about COUNTRY. WE here in Memphis had Elvis, Jerry Lee, etc. Shouldn't the Rock n Roll marathon be here?

The weird things that go through my brain on a Saturday afternoon....

Best of luck! :)

I will!!!

I did run this last year. It was the coldest day in FL all year. Hopefully this year will be WARMER.

I use run-walk-run and I do make it to the finish line!
