The countdown is on for the Women’s Running Series Nashville 5K/Half Marathon! I’m so excited because this will be my first Women’s Running Series race and my fifth half marathon. I’ve heard great things about this series and I look forward to sharing the pavement with all of the awesome ladies (and gents) and other Half Fanatics! Yes, the series is open to both men and women participants—but sorry men, age group and overall awards will be given to female participants only and you can’t start in the first corral. But, that’s okay! You still get a sweet finisher’s medal.

The Women’s Running Series is walker friendly and for athletes of all speeds and sizes! All you have to do is maintain a 18 minute per mile or less and you’re good to go! I love races like these because there’s not so much pressure. There are certain races that I like to be more focused about pace/time, but this race I want to have fun and enjoy the course! I love to take photos too! Yes, I’m the young lady in the sparkle skirt on the course taking selfies. Running should be fun, right!? Anything to take my mind off of the miles ahead is fun to me. I’ll leave the stuffiness to the “elites”. Just sayin’…
