Belated, and long, first ever half fanatic post, and first #medalmonday post .
While running my second ever half Mud Mountain Dam Marathon Sunday, my wife was talking to a gal who mentioned if you run 3 half marathons/full marathons, within a certain time period, you can qualify for some marathon maniacs club…
Did some googling and found you all; and also found me completely my 2 half marathons ever, within 14 days, is more than crazy, it’s half fanatic crazy .
Good to see I am not the only one

“YOU are a Jackass!!!” proclaims the announcer as each person approaches the finish line. Jackass Half was great!

Not quite #medalmonday , however yesterday my dog and I walked 8 miles…. furthest I’ve walked since my accident on July 25! Can’t run yet, sadly, but it felt great to walk this far again!

Inaugural Mud Mountain Dam Marathon – fun course with great volunteers, that somehow still felt like hard work. Third place in age group ribbon (yes, there were only 3 of us) 😉

My takeaways from the The Hennepin 💯 this weekend…
*you are tougher than you ever imagined
*the joy of accomplishment is indescribable
*race people are the most beautiful uplifting souls
*most importantly..embrace those who lift you up and let go of the ones who don’t!!!
Michelle… my bestie for more than 30 years and I don’t deserve your devotion sometimes..: Mark thank you for your patience and having my back (literally as I walked backward for a mile to try to loosen up my back)
I am so blessed.
Btw bottom left pic is me refusing ambulance to go to the hospital 😆. Yes..I looked that horrendous at the end. See Less

Covenant Health Knoxville 5K on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday. In the half, I improved by 55 minutes since my half at Victor Ashe Park in January 2020, and my time was 18 minutes faster than the last time I did the Covenant Health Knoxville Half Marathon in 2019! I am NOT a great runner, so this made me so happy!
