Announcing State 13: California

Yesterday marked the halfway point for 2014.  Can you believe it?  Me neither.

I realized though that without any races on the calendar I was risking only having one new state this year (AR in February).  An annual race rate like that puts me at 60+ years old for completing my goal….I’d like for it not to take that long!

Things for state 13 just sort of fell together; I honestly don’t remember how it came up in conversation.  I’ve always said that my California race will be the Nike Women’s Half in San Francisco and guess what y’all I’m IN (well, registered at least….we’ll see if I come out of the draw!).


Due to the popularity of the race, it is organized as a lottery now.  You can register from today up until 11 AM Pacific Time on June 19, 2014.  Winners will be notified by June 27.  You’ll give your payment info but won’t be charged until you’re selected to run.  Click here for more FAQs.

The actual race is Sunday, October 19 at 6:30 am.

Keep your fingers crossed for me!  I’ve had my eye on this race, this town, this state and those blue boxes on silver platters held by SF Firemen in tuxedos for a long time now 😉

Motivation for sure

Have you run a Nike Women’s event before?  How are those San Francisco hills?! Be sure to let me know if you’re in the lottery as well and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you too!
