St. Clare Health Mission Half Marathon 

Location: La Crosse, WI                 
Date: May 2, 2011
Temp: 40 degrees

TIME: 2:04:42
PACE: 9:31
Overall Place: 463/905
Age Division (Female): 70/168

I would recommend this half marathon.  It has a highly competitive selection of people, the fastest male time was 1:18 and female was 1:26.  The course takes you on a scenic tour of the city and takes you through some nice neighborhoods.  There are a several inclines, but only a couple big hills to make your way over.  The finish line is great too, because it is not just a half and full marathon, they have turned the entire weekend into a fitness festival so the finish line is very exciting with lots of spectators and food, and the participatory medal is really sweet as well.

RCU Charity Classic 10K
Location: Eau Claire, WI
Date: June 25, 2011
Temp: 65 degrees

TIME: 56:19
PACE: 9:04
Overall: 204/411

I had mixed feelings about this race and the race organization.  There were a number of pros and cons about the race.  Overall, it was okay.  The course was a relatively flat course, with a few hills mixed in.  It took full advantage of the great running/biking path in Eau Claire that runs alongside the river.  This race also had kids races, which didn't affect me, but if I had kids it would be a great family event.  This race was my first 10K, so I do not have anything to compare it against, but my time was a hair faster than I was aiming for!
