Sometimes all you have to do is ask. If you wonder how we figure out our routes and distance, we use a mapping tool provided by USATF. Look on the right side of the page and you will see a link. USATF Running Routes
Here you can find various routes throughout the U.S. or create your very own and share it with the running community.
My point of this posting, don't be afraid to ask questions or post comments. Today, I e-mailed the USATF webmaster and pointed how annoying it was to create a route, go back to the main page and do a look-up to find the link. The link would be useful to copy and paste it in an e-mail or blog. Well, within hours he e-mailed me back and thought it was a great suggestion. He modified the submission page to display a link from a route you just created. Pretty cool! A peon like me from Springfield, Illinois was able to make a contribution to the running community.
So, if you see anything you like to add in the HalfWits Blog, SRRC, L.M. Half Marathon website or any sites, contact the webmaster and just ask. You will always get a response.
The HalfWits is a community of runners in Springfield, IL who enjoy the comradarie of training with a group, running in half marathons, and having a lot of fun! We kind of started on a whim and now we have a couple hundred runners who proudly say "I run with a bunch of HalfWits!"
Feel free to join us...either here in cyberspace or for our runs!
