And another two...

Okay, okay.....I have been another bad blogger lately. I SWEAR this time it was not just me being lazy. So much has happened in the past 2 weeks. Aside from starting a new position (and I am up for interviews this week AGAIN as well! Yay!) my grandmother also passed away. Urgent family get-togethers and frequent trips home in addition to 2 weddings have made things quite busy. I promise to be a better bloggy buddy in August!

To start things off in the right direction, I signed up for 2 more half marathons! I am going for a new Half Fanatic moon level as well. Currently I am a "Neptune" and I am going for "Uranus" (haha, seriously, it is not my choice of a name!)

Neptune (my current achievement):
2 Half Marathons in 16 days or
3 Half Marathons in 3 consecutive calendar months

Uranus (next goal):
3 Half Marathons in 16 days or
6 Half Marathons in 6 consecutive calendar months or
8-10 Half Marathons in 365 days

After these two races I will be at Uranus and will have completed 6 half marathons in 6 consecutive calendar months! (Mercer Half, Whidbey Half, Bainbridge Half, Kirkland Half, Seattle RnR Half, and the next two.) Pretty exciting stuff :) So here are the next two half marathons I signed up for:

Anacortes Art Dash Half Marathon (Saturday, July 31, 2010):

This half is located in Anacortes, WA, and also includes a 10K and 5K race. Races fees are $45 and include a race shirt, goodie bag and finishers ribbon (not medal?) This looks to be a smaller race, but should be enjoyable. The course runs along the water at Anacortes and along some sort or bridge. I am hoping for pretty scenery and hopefully not too many hills!

Tacoma Narrows Half Marthon (Saturday, August 7, 2010):


This half is located in Tacoma, WA and runs across the famous Narrows Bridge, through Cheney Stadium and finishes in downtown Tacoma. The current race fee is $90 and includes a t-shirt, chip timer, goodie bag and commemorative finisher's glass. This race should be somewhat hilly, but probably and hopefully no more hilly than other races in the Puget Sound area. Should be another beautiful route.

I am really excited! Although I have not been blogging, I have been running, so I feel prepared for these races. I cant wait and a recap to come shortly! Are any of you running in these races?

Happy running racing!


  1. my condolences to you and your family.

    when i was sure i was going to be moving to the westside i actually had these two races on my calendar as potential second half marathons...but alas im stuck on the east side.

  2. I'm sorry about your grandmother.
    And have a good time running to become a Uranus!

  3. You trulay are a half fanatic!

    My condolences for the loss of your grandmother.

  4. I'm sorry for your loss. I can't wait to join you in the Fanatics!

  5. I'm sorry for your loss :( I hope things settle down. It's always funny how things get crazy all at one time and then other times life seems to be on cruise.

    Good luck with your training for your Uranus...I mean marathons.

  6. sorry to hear about your g-ma! hope you and the fam are doing well.

    with the way you run halfs like every weekend, i don't see you having a problem getting a new half-fanatic-status!
