Half Marathon? WHAT!??!

I don't know what's wrong with me.  I swore I would never run a half marathon and now I'm obsessively reading reviews on them.  I have been all over the board on which to do but I think I've finally made my decision.  

The top things I was looking for was A) A pretty route  B) Pretty flat, not hilly at all.  C) Either close by or somewhere I would want to vacation.

I have many I am interested in but the winner just came to me, it's the Foot Traffic Flat!

It's super close to our house, on Sauvie Island, which is nice & scenic and they even put the word FLAT right in the description!  Who can beat that??!

One last reason I knew this was the one for me?  It takes place on Thursday the 4th of July.  Which means that not only is it a fun day anyway, it's the day before my birthday and I can't think of any better way to go into my next year then to celebrate how far I've come in this last one.  : )

I've currently never run further than 7 miles, 13.1 seems like SO MANY.

Mark my words, I really NEVER will do a full marathon!!
