Sounds fabulous. Some advice for your first 1/2 marathon: Have fun!! and don't worry about the time. As long as your goal is to finish, the rest will fall into place. Are you training on your own? As long as you can get to about 11 miles 2 weeks before the run, you'll have no problems completing the 13.1. Good luck and see you there!

I have heard lots positive feedback on Cowtown. I am just started a running program this year and am planning on registering for Cowtown for my first half marathon soon. I don't run fast, but am hoping to complete it in a 3 hour timeframe. :-)

This is a fun one, I've done the 5k walk portion the last 2 years - set a personal record last year! Unfortunately, it looks like Paul will be out of town at a conference that weekend, so I may have to pass this year, unless I can find a Sunday morning babysitter. (My kid is way too big to push in a stroller for that long!)

I ran the 1/2 last year and this has to be one of my favorites. I won't be running it this year because I have another one scheduled in October. But... my husband will be running it this year instead of me.

Love this race!

This event is a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The event is held in Land Park. Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, Marathon Relay or 5K run/walk. This advance notice will give you time to prep yourself and it's for a worthy cause. By the way, my mom is a Leukemia survivor. She's been in complete remission for 19 years now!!!! Hope to see you all there! www.sacramentocowtownmarathon.com
