Join the Runner's World Half Marathon and Festival

Runner's World Half family, #runchat In just a few short weeks, I'll be heading to the Runner's World Festival once again. With so many things going on in my life, and my desire to focus on the Richmond Half, I've opted to skip out on the half marathon this year and instead do another crazy aspect of the weekend -- the Five and Dime.

The Five and Dime is the 5K and 10K, back-to-back, on the Saturday before the half marathon. I don't know how to really prepare, or how I'll approach either race, or if I'll just do it for pure fun, but I'm certainly looking forward to this opportunity for a unique race experience.

I'd love to have you join in. My #RunChat partner Scott will also be there that weekend.
