2011 Marion Arts Festival 5K Race in Marion, Iowa

A great race that I think everyone should try at least once for their first 5K or their 100th 5K.  It is well done and many details are paid attention to.

Only thing that could be improved would be finishing medals because for some those are important.

Here is the link to the race I did with my friends and some of my family:   RACE

On thing I didn't mention in my original race post is that the weather was perfect.  It was scheduled to storm big time and all day and super heavy, but the storm changed it's mind and went another direction, the skies cleared for our pre-race, during the race and then for most of the post race.  Then it rained for about and hour and then it cleared up for the entire day!  I am very thankful for that.

2011 Columbus Distance Classic Half Marathon, Columbus, Ohio

The day finally arrived.   May 7, 2011.  I was super nervous, but did it.

Here is the link to the details of that race:  Half Marathon

I'm glad I did it!

the next Half Marathon is scheduled for September 10, 2011 in Waterloo, Iowa.  The race is called Park to Park and it's put on by the Trekman Racing company.  Dave Trekman is the race director and he is awesome at putting on races.  If you are reading this and are local and you would like to sign up for a fabulous race I recommend this one.  It also has a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon walk and Half Marathon relay.
