Did you know you can split a half marathon with a friend at the First Watch Sarasota Half on October 20th?
That's right, grab a running friend and share the miles. Each person runs half the race, then you run the .1 mile together! Cross that finish line as a team and claim your huge dolphin medals!
Psst! There's a discount code for the half and relay at the end of this post.
How to Register a Relay Team
Each person on the relay team must sign up. The first one to register creates the team name and becomes the team captain. The captain pays the team's entry fee.
The second member of the team must know the team name so they choose it when they register.
What Relay Teams Get Before the Race
Each 2-person team receives:
The belt and timing bib MUST be worn by the first runner, then transferred to the second runner in the RELAY EXCHANGE AREA.
NOTE: You can return the timing belt at the end of the race to avoid a $5 fee.
Relay Starting Locations
1. Team Member 1 runs about 6 miles from the start to the exchange area. This person begins at the starting line.
2. Team Member 2 runs about 7 miles. This person reports to the Relay Exchange Area on US 41 and 10th. The exchange area is walking distance from the start of the race.
Relay Exchange Area
100 yards before the relay exchange Team Member 1 will see an arrow exchange sign. Prepare early and stay to your right.
Team Member 2 will be waiting in their area. Once the chipped bib is transferred, Team Member 2 is ready continue on the course. Water is available for Team Member 1 at this point.

I started Week Two of my Fall training schedule today. I'm focused on lots of hill repeats to build endurance. My 5K in Pennsylvania later this month will be a good benchmark.
About 1.5 miles into my hill repeats, I spotted a curtain of rain headed my way. I ducked under an oak to wait out the water. Five minutes later, I was back at my hill repeats and the sun was shinning. Oh, Florida!
My only regret was that I was so excited about breaking in a new pair of shoes, I didn't check the weather. Oh well, they'll dry. Besides, there's something wonderful about running in the rain, so I was happy.
Finished with 3+ miles and a check mark on my training plan.
Fall Racing Plans
This season, I'm going to say my goals out loud so I have witnesses and accountability. I won't go on and on about my miles and times, but I'll discuss motivation, nutrition, fuel, and most of all: GOALS!
Half Marathons are my jam this season! I'm warming up with shorter races that fit into my schedule. But come October, it's full-time pursuit of half mara PRs before 2019 ends.
My next post will describe how I'm going to get to those PRs. Until then, stay hydrated everyone. It's super hot and humid out there!
Best wishes to my running friends who are training for the Chicago Marathon. It's brutal to be running double-digits in Florida right now!
This is where you'll find me writing instead of running. (But, you know I'll be writing about running, right?)
