Last month, I started a series on my favorite things about the First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon. I'm promoting the race as a BibRave Pro, but also because I really love this race. It's one of my favorite courses 'cause it's interesting and challenging.
The event includes a Half Marathon, a 10K and a Half Relay. That means there's a race for every type of runner or walker. Today, I want to tell you about St. Armands Circle. It's a charming part of the race and the city of Sarasota.

2. St. Armands Circle
St. Armands Circle has a variety of shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Click here for a current list. It's a fun and historical place. If you're looking for souvenirs or a one-of-a-kind gift, you'll find it here.
Runners see part of St. Armands early in the race. I recommend you make a plan to explore St. Armands before or after the race. Do some window shopping or grab a bite. Most restaurants have outdoor seating which makes for fun people-watching.
St. Armands, Lido Key, Longboat Key, Bird Key
Sarasota has some of the most beautiful beaches around. During the race, runners enter St. Armands from the Ringling Bridge side. As you can see below, there is plenty of shoreline up and down Lido Key. St. Armands Circle is an excellent way to start, finish or breakup a day at the beach.

The Sarasota Half, 10K and Relay is popular because of the location, course, race management, and those super-sized dolphin medals. Another good thing is my discount code.

My daughter and I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and loved it! It was a blast to tour the city on foot. We ran through lots of neighborhoods, up and down hills, and across 3 bridges.
We took in all the sights and sounds. Did a lot of fun people watching. We stopped to visit with family along the way. I already want to go back and run for time.
The weather was good. It was cool and cloudy. There were heavier showers a couple of times, but not too bad. You can read my Pittsburgh Half Marathon Race Review here.
A great big giant thank you to everyone who put on such a fantastic race. I always have and always will, love the people and places of Pittsburgh!
