FANATIC: marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion

Don't worry my runnerd friends. If you don't get your hands on a RUNNERD sticker this go round, there are plenty of opportunities still to come.

And to maintain my own runnerd status, I have added a race to my schedule: the South Valley Half Marathon. I am skipping the Hobble Creek Half after experiencing the past two years of late starts and poor planning, so I was looking for an August race. The South Valley Half is the perfect answer.

The course starts up a canyon and ends in a housing community that is vaguely Stepford Wifey, in all the best ways. The race is chip timed, there are pacers, and it has plenty of aid stations. What more could a girl ask for in a half?

Now I just need to find a half on to put on my race schedule in July, and I can become a Half Fanatic. Or maybe not.


  1. I love you for posting about this race. I MUST do it! I live just outside of Daybreak!

    So, on July 9th there is the South Jordan Half.

  2. You must join the club and find a race to do in July. The more the merrier!!

  3. I've run 383 half marathons in 29 years. That is an average of 13 halfs per year. I consider myself a half fanatic although I only run them as training runs nowadays.

  4. That would be a great club to be a part of! You are awesome!
