I’m IN to run the New Jersey Half Marathon on April 29, 2018! I am so excited to head to the Jersey Shore and run along the famed Boardwalk. Over the past 3 years of running half marathons I’ve realized that I’ve made it my unofficial goal to run something in (at least) every East Coast state so I’m excited to check New Jersey off the list.


I lived in New Jersey for 7 months during 2012/2013, but never made it down to the Shore. There’s so much I’m missing! Maybe I’ll fist pump through the race?! Is that still a thing? I sure do hope so.
With a race finally on the schedule for 2018 that means training officially starts on December 25, 2017. Merry Christmas to me! I’ve decided to switch it up this year and try Hanson’s beginner Half Marathon training plan.

When I’m home alone I regularly crank up the tunes and bust out my best Queen B impression (I’m basically as good as she is. I swear it.)
As soon as my husband comes home though, it’s a whole different ball gam…

Are you looking to add a winter half marathon to your schedule? How about a lovely place to take a racecation? Look no further than the Palm Desert Half Marathon!
Here are the top reasons to run the Palm Desert Half in 2018:
The Weather:
I have lived in a place where February means cold weather my ENTIRE life. I bust out my sweaters, long johns, and brushed running gear in November and usually don’t put it away until April. It’s hard for me to imagine a place where the average temperate in February is above 40 degrees. Ahhh, but a place like that does exist believe it or not! (I know, I had a difficult time believing it myself!)
Enter- Palm Desert, CA. With 350 days of sunshine a year and an average “winter” high of 70 degrees, you might just want to move there. But …
