Subject: Looking for a good half-marathon in South Florida
I am training for a marathon (Rock and Roll in San Diego on June 1) and looking to run a HM in the next few weeks to gauge my racing time as I am trying to BQ in San Diego. I could race against the clock by myself down here, but that isn't quite the same as a road race. Anyway, I am in Key West but will travel to other South Florida locations for one. I saw the Singer Island HM on April 12th. Anyone know anything about that race? Any others you can think of that are worth running? Thanks

San Diego r-n-roll is a great race! It was my second marathon and I loved it.

As for an upcoming half I've got no suggestions for you, sorry. I'm sure there are some but I think it's hard at the moment to find a good online list of local races. I'm not sure why that is.

Is the Singer Island half a multirace event? If so, just be prepared. They do a good job but it is new ownership. Which is to say, prepare like you would for an inaugural event.

Thanks. I am looking forward to it and, other than the hills, I will be as ready as I can be. I decided to just race against the clock by myself. Not the same as a true test, but that will be fine. Running in the 7 Mile Bridge Run this Saturday. So, although not a HM, it will be my race fitness test.

I started riding this spring with the Carnac shoes on Look pedals (with plenty of float). About five minutes into a ride I get sharp pain on the outer edge of my feet, just behind the pedal.

At one of my last swim sessions the week of my first Ironman, one of my training partners told me how she was envious..."your first Ironman is fun, you have no pressure and no expectations!"
