Everyone knows that I am always on the lookout for new running adventures and when I was invited to help promote the Key West Half Marathon, I jumped at the opportunity to do some research and learn more about another new option for adventure! Yes, I have already run Florida on my quest to run a half marathon in all 50 states, but that doesn’t mean that I will NEVER run in FL again!
Why Key West Half Marathon? Just a few reasons!
The race is in January…. Florida is warm… Wisconsin in Cold… where would you rather be? Yeah, that’s what I thought! I’ll gladly take the cool “winter” temps of southern Florida than the sub zero windchill’s of northern Wisconsin!! While I don’t mind getting bundled up in 14 layers of clothing to run outside, I’d much rather my running skirts and tank tops!
But the weather isn’t the only thing that lures runners to Key West every January!
