I’m pretty elated about this. I ran a half marathon in Nashville last year with my mom and had a blast – the city is beautiful to run (or run-walk, or walk) in, and the energy is unbelievable. I’m so excited for whoever wins this!

Good luck!

  1. I have always wanted to run this half, and perfect timing as I’m moving to Nashville at the beginning of April!

  2. Hi Megan! I’m Bill Howell’s oldest daughter, he told me about this opportunity, very cool. I’ve already registered but I’ve passed it along to my runner friends. Maybe we’ll get to meet when I’m in town race weekend! 🙂 Great blog, btw!

  3. Hi Megan! I’m one of Ruth Howell’s running friends in Seattle, but originally from Memphis. Being a fellow Tennessean, I’ve always wanted to do the Country Music Marathon, and I’m a huge fan of St. Jude’s. My favorite marathon thus far was the 2012 Portland Marathon. Everything was perfect: the weather, the fast course, my energy – it was a beautiful day and an experience I hope to repeat!

  4. Just did the New Orleans Half Marathon a few weeks ago and it was pretty great. But, my favorite race is probably the Tomato Fest 5K in East Nashville – its always such a fun day!

    1. Wow, I love New Orleans! It’s the most beautiful city in the USA in my opinion…right after East Nashville. You have some mighty fine taste in races, sir.

  6. My first (and only) half, the 2010 KY Derby half marathon will always be a milestone race, but my favorite has to be the 2012 WSM/Springer Mountain Farms 5k that I did last year on St. Patrick’s day. Check-in could have been slightly more organized and the course was not all that great but I participated with 2 friends and we all finished faster than anticipated! It was a St. Patrick’s Day miracle.
