Last year I ran my best ever Half Marathon at 13.1 Fort Lauderdale…I made an abrupt turn to cross training and after that and haven’t had a true race since then to retest my skills. So I am VERY excited to be signed up again to run the race on Nov 13, 2011.
13.1 FORT LAUDERDALE
This race finishes on the beautiful beaches of FTL…with sand sculptures, dancers, and beach chairs you can really make a day of just enjoying the finish line! It makes it fun for your family and friends too because they get a day at the beach to pay off their early morning of cheering.
The course allows you to run along the water much of the time and is truly at the PERFECT time of year for running in Southern Florida. The temperatures are perfect for shorts and tanks, while the humidity has dropped off!
In 2011, they will also have a Michelob Ultra Beer Garden for the finishers as well. If a cool brew is your favorite post race treat then does it get much better than a beer on the beach?
If you haven’t heard of the 13.1 series, you have either been far too focused on your marathon only schedule or hiding under a rock. Half marathons happen to me my favorite distance to race because I can train for them year round regardless of my schedule and I love distance running! Enough about me, back to the series
