Niagara Womens Half Marathon- Here I ...Run!

Hey, did I tell you that I am training for the 2013  Niagara Womens Half Marathon?

"I am going to rock this" said the very restless runner.
In hopes that she will prevail, the little restless runner trained very hard!

I am trying my best to follow Hal Higdon's Half Marathon Training Program for Novice Beginners.  I am not following it exactly.  But, fairly close. Let me tell you, I am running far more than I was!
So, the Niagara Women's Half Marathon in Niagara Falls, Canada is a fantastic charitable event! All the proceeds will be going to the Women's Place of South Niagara, which aides hundreds of women each year who are trying to flee from Domestic Violence.  You can donate through this link, here.

Not only does this event offer amazing swag bags (one of the best, I here), each finisher receives a medal at the finish line.  And it's placed around your neck by a local Fire Fighter, lol. Sounds great to me! There are drummers cheering you on, and even the Port-a Potties are decked out with Flowers in the Urinals and Lavender ! Here are some pics from last years marathon.
Love it! LOL 

Finish Wine! Yes, please! haha

The fabulous Kathrine Switzer will be there, once again  for autographs
and photo ops! You will be able to purchase her books and CDs, as well.
THIS is happening May 31st, June 1st & RACE DAY June 2nd.

SO, this is me. Holding myself  fully accountable. I hope that I have your support. Is anyone joining me out there on  race day?

I would love to hear your  half Marathon advice, so please do not be shy to send your comments :)
