I've always considered 13 to be a lucky number! So since it's 2013 and the half marathon is my favorite distance (which of course is 13.1 miles), I've decided to commit to running 13 of them this year!
As an added bonus, I'm doing it for charity! I've recently joined the Board of AliveAndKickn an organization focused on increasing awareness and prevention of colorectal cancer and increasing early detection through screening and genetic testing.
So I've already run #1 (Houston 1/13/13), #2 (E. Murray Todd, Lincroft, NJ 3/3/13), #3 (NYC 3/17/13), #4 (More/Fitness Women's Half 4/14/13), #5 (Long Branch Half 5/5/13), #6 (Superhero Half, Morristown 5/19/13) and #7 (Niagara Ultra Half 6/22/13). July is taking me to Waitfield, VT (7/7/13) and August it's on to Dublin, Ireland (8/5/13). I finish on November 17 in my college town - Philadelphia, PA.
