That's me! Fanatic #421! I am not sure how, but I somehow stumbled upon the coolest group every - Half Fanatics! Half Fanatics is a group for those of us that are half-marathon crazy. I consider myself one of those people. I don't have huge issues training or running in a half marathon. I can do multiple ones in a short period of time and I enjoy running them. Now, marathons are a different story. I have a slight interest until I start thinking about the time committment and the toll on my body. Then I quickly lose interest and figure out the next half to sign-up for.
Anyway, to be a part of this group, you have to qualify. They have several different categories for qualification. After doing some research, I realized I met the minimum criteria to get in and applied for approval. Minimum or not, who cares - they accepted me. I'm in and it is still cool! I got in by doing 3 half marathons in 36 days. I also had some other races in there that didn't count, too. I'm not gonna lie, the races were hard and I was tired by the end of that period. But, getting into the Half Fanatics kind of makes the effort a little more worth it! So, #421 it is!
