Half Crazy Hamster
Half Marathons have been the preferred distance so far for this Crazy Hamster! I may not be fast, but I’m not last. I prefer to be able to enjoy the scenery and new places I get to scamper around!
So lets’ get going and run one in every state! It might take me a while, as that money tree that I planted as not started producing yet, but slow and steady finishes the race

My first Half Marathon in Michigan finally complete!
Yes, that is correct… after growing up in Michigan, still traveling back there on a fairly regular basis and only living a few hours away, up until now, I had not run a Half Marathon in the state! A few months ago, I saw a Facebook post about the Marquette Marathon and figured I’d check […]
Cheesehead Half Marathon Race recap
Last year’s Cheesehead Marathon was a tough one (last years race details can be found here). After the brutal sun last year, I could only hope for better weather this year. I wish I could say that this year was better. There may not have been beating sun in a cloudless sky like last […]
