2013 Schedule for the Southern Half Marathon Runner

RunnerGirl1

So…the weather has officially changed…and the cooler it is, the better for me!  I had an amazing #3 half marathon race (recap HERE) – and am gearing up to complete half marathon #4 in less than 10 days (Ole Man River – New Orleans, LA – Dec. 15, 2012)!  Yes, it seems that I have the half marathon itch.  And in my crazy obsessive planning – I figured that if I pace the race dates out correctly, I can add a few more states to my “Half the States” quest next year!  Below are some amazing choices for my 2013 schedule – and I hope a few inspiring choices for the “southern” runner.  You can check for areas near you on Running in the USA website HERE or Half Marathons website HERE.
