Turn Up Your Run at the Plano Balloon Festival + Half Marathon/10k/5k/1k

What is cooler than 50 beautiful hot air balloons, entertainment, fireworks and family fun? Getting to pick a race to run the same weekend as the Plano Balloon Festival is taking place!

September 20th-22nd Plano is the place you need to be! Bring your family and friends and make it an epic weekend full of music, hot air, and finish lines!

I signed up for the half marathon several months ago when I was looking for a fall half. I’m doing the San Antonio Rock n’ Roll in December and wanted a tune up race, and this one sounded absolutely perfect!

The race directors, organizers, Marketing…. everyone…. have been so kind! I am a little crazy about doing homework on races before signing up, and I can tell you that although this is my first time running this race…. I’ve read nothing but amazing reviews! It definitely won’t be my last time running this half!

Check out the awesome medals! I’m hoping to earn the half marathon bling next Sunday making it my 32nd half marathon. I have really been struggling with a stress reaction for the past 8 weeks of this training cycle. I’m angry about it as I would’ve been flying by now. However, universe is testing me. I’ve adjusted my goals and am going to go in with a full heart, grateful legs, and will enjoy the sights and experience! I may still surprise myself, who know 🙂

Turn UP your run! Sign up for the half marathon, 10K, 5K or 1K. All participants in each distance will receive a dazzling commemorative finisher medal! All participants receive two tickets to the InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival plus parking on race day.

I just got my packet in the mail as I chose that option when I registered as I wouldn’t be in Plano until after packet pickup closed. So glad they offer that option!

They have several convenient locations to snag yours though, register today and come run with me! I have a whole group who is registered and I’d love to meet YOU! Plus, then you get to party at the festival after!

Here is the course map for the half marathon, and I’ve heard there are some pretty decent hills. #prayforme #stressreactionssuck
