OMG! So how excited am I that I found out I'm a GirlsGoneSporty ambassador! I'm very excited and overwhelmed for the opportunity. It's the support and the outreach you get from other people that helps me learn how to live this lifestyle without having to sacrifice the things I enjoy doing. These ambassador programs are truly helpful and all around insightful when it comes to this world of fitness.

Also! Have any of you guys heard of Half Fanatics? I just recently found out about them through one of my Instagram friends as well as a friend of mine. There are several ways to become a "half fanatic," most of which include running several races in an allotted amount of time. The purpose of qualifying is to be able to receive discounts at most of the races and to meet some awesome cool people as well.

There are different levels of qualification: 

Neptune:
2 Half Marathons within a 16 day time frame.
3 Half Marathons within a 90 day time frame.

Uranus:
3 Half Marathons within a 16 day time frame.
6 Half Marathons in 6 consecutive calendar months.
8 - 11 Half Marathons within 365 days.

Saturn:
4 Half Marathons within 37 days.
12 - 18 Half Marathons within 365 days.
4 Half Marathons in 4 different US states, Countries or Canadian Provinces (any combination) 51 days.

Jupiter:
4 Half Marathons in 23 days.
19 - 25 Half Marathons within 365 days.
2 Half Marathons in 2 days (or 48 hours) must finish both races!
9 Half Marathons in 9 different US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within 365 days.

Mars:
3 Half Marathons within 3 days.
26 - 30 Half Marathons within 365 days.
4 Half Marathons within a 9 day window.
3 Half Marathons in 3 separate US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within a 10-day time span.
13 Half Marathons in 13 different US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within 365 days.

Earth:
31 - 37 Half Marathons within 365 days.
16 Half Marathon in 16 different US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within 365 days.
6 Half Marathons within 16 days. With proper planning and rest this can be done!

Venus:
38 - 44 Half Marathons within 365 days.
20 Half Marathons in 20 US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within 365 days
13 Half Marathons within 79 days.

Mercury:
45 - 51 Half Marathons within 365 days.
23 Half Marathons in 23 US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within 365 days.
28 Half Marathons within 183 days.

The Sun:
52 Half Marathons or more within 365 days.
30 Half Marathons in 30 US states, Countries, or Canadian Provinces (any combination) within 365 days.
20 Countries within 365 days.

With each of the different levels and their qualifications you don't have to complete all the criteria, you just have to complete one of the criteria within the level you're looking to qualify for. I will be qualifying for Neptune level. I'm currently registered to run the United Airlines Half, April Fools Half and the Air BnB Brooklyn Half. These races take place within less than 90 days of each other. 

Now that I'm thinking about it, it seems kind of daunting but I know it's nothing I can't handle. The race that I'm gunning for is the United Airlines half, that race I am looking for a PR. The other two I would be happy if I PR, but I'm doing them for fun and to hang out with friends while qualifying for half fanatics. 


I'm ready for warm weather and fun races, that's what the spring and summer are all about. Do you have a favorite spring or summer race that you’re waiting for? And if so, can I join you? Lol
