CASA Half Marathon

CASA Half Marathon

Ready or not I ran the CASA Half Marathon exactly 4 weeks after 3 Bridges. I love this race and truly believe it’s the fastest half marathon course in Arkansas. (At this point I think I’ve run most of them!)  I’ve worked this race into my schedule every year since 2013.  CASA was originally scheduled for December but bad weather postponed the race 5 weeks.  As luck would have it the weather on race morning was looking rough with 100%…

CASA Half Marathon 2016- Officially an Iron Runner!

CASA Half Marathon 2016- Officially an Iron Runner!

As luck would have it my favorite half marathon in Arkansas and my goal marathon were scheduled one week apart. I know most people would forego the half and focus on the marathon. I might have agreed but the CASA Half Marathon was the 20th and final race on the Grand Prix series schedule so as far as I was concerned not running it wasn’t an option.  My plan was to use it as a marathon paced run or maybe…

CASA Half Marathon Race Report 2014 – Going out strong!

The last few weeks have been a blur of Christmas parties, activities, work, shopping, baking and RACING!  Ordinarily I consider myself fairly organized but right now I am just taking it day by day.  I would love to write a more lengthy race report but if I do it might never happen.  (If you recall I’m still short two 10K race reports from November…)  I saw this on a friends Facebook page this morning and could really relate.  It’s hard…

The CASA Half Marathon- aka Breaking 1:24!

The CASA Half Marathon- aka Breaking 1:24!

So what do you do when your marathon is cancelled?  As I mentioned in my last post– you register for some more races!  Besides finding a replacement marathon I also decided to throw in a half marathon as a tune-up race since it worked out timing -wise.  Last year was the first time I’d ever heard of this race but it was scheduled just one week after the St. Jude Memphis Marathon so I didn’t do it.  When my friend…
