I wanted to do a quick break in the vaca recap to let you know about a half marathon that’s coming up – one that I’ll be running again.  I think this will be my 4th year running it!  One thing about the Toledo area that I love is the number of great races we have here, and at great prices!   The Boy Scout half marathon will be on September 3rd, at 7:30 am (love the early start time!) in Bowling Green.  It’s a great tune up race for many Fall marathons so that’s just one good reason to put it on your race calendar.  Not up for a half marathon quite yet – there is also a 5K.  Options for everyone!


Here are a few other details:

  • Easy Parking  (** = low stress on race morning!)
  • Low Price  (** = more money for other races, or shoes!!)
  • Custom Finisher Medal
  • 8 Fluid Stations
  • High Quality Tech Shirt
  • Immediate Results/Awards  (** I love that they are handed out when you cross the finish!)
  • Cash Prizes for Overall Top 5
  • Fast and Flat  (** flat!!  love that too!)
  • Benefitting Erie Shores Council & Brown Bag Project

And there are lots of Boy Scouts handing out water and cheering you on!!  Seriously, that’s a great thing.  My son and husband helped out at a race water stop this past weekend and 90% of the cups were handed out by my son.  Who can resist a kid giving ‘ya water or just a high five along the course 🙂

Pricing for both the 5K and half will go up on August 19th, so don’t miss out on saving a few $$.  Last year we got these really nice shirts… I’m sure you won’t want to miss out on that!!

Q: Do you schedule tune up races during your marathon/half marathon training?

Q: Are there any Fall marathoners out there?  

Q: Do you prefer to get water from a kid or adult? 

Cuteness vs skill, right?  🙂
