On April 12th, 2015, I will run my third Iron Girl Half Marathon in Clearwater. This race is very special to me, because it was my first half ever and my first sub 2:30 half! This year I am hoping to set a new record!
Here’s a little history:
2013 – I ran the Iron Girl as my first half marathon just 12 weeks after getting serious about running! I was aiming for a time under 3 hours and I crossed the finish line at 2:57:24. I cried when I crossed the finish line and was so grateful for that adventure! Read more…
2014 – This was my second year running the Iron Girl and was my 6th overall half marathon. I really felt like I was prepared and ready to rock this race. I set a goal of running the half in about 2:30. I was elated to cross the line in 2:25:08 – totally crushing my goal for the race. Read more…
2015 – this story is yet to be written, however I would love to beat my current PR of 2:21 and hit a sub 2:20. Watch for the race recap!
Why I love Iron Girl?
1. It is an event exclusively for women! Sorry guys!
2. It is a beautiful course! Yes, there are some tough bridges on this course, however they are manageable (walk up, run down)
3. This event has such a positive, upfliting event that celebrates all that we as women are capable of when we set our minds to it!
4. They have awesome bling!!!
