The last race Olivia and I did together was the Rock n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon / Half Marathon back in February 2013. Both of us have suffered multiple injuries since then (Olivia even had to spend 8-weeks in a boot), but we are hopeful to make our return to completing races together this fall at the 2014 Murfreesboro “Middle” Half Marathon. After registration opened at 10am yesterday, it sold-out early this morning, but Olivia and I both got in! She decided to sign-up on a whim last night while we were having dinner at Ruth’s Chris before heading to TPAC for War Horse.
This is one of my favorite races, but I’ve missed the last two with injuries. Olivia has never participated in the Middle Half, so this will be her first chance to experience this great event. Even though the race will only be 7 days after St. George, I really wanted to run it this year!
