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!

Linda Snell HF18475

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!

Sue Stevens MM12891 DA2452 HF8593

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) 😉

Jeane Stebleton MM11811

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
— with Mark Plate and Michelle McKinney Weemaes.

Did the Bear Trail Half marathon yesterday in Delaware for state number 47! My first ever trail half 🤗

Lisa Greenwood HF13097

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!
