F3 Half Marathon Week Is Upon Us

The 2017 F3 Half Marathon week is here.  After not racing since early December, I can’t wait to toe the line.  Ok, so maybe I won’t toe the line necessarily but I am looking forward to racing, testing myself against myself and against the competition.  If you have not registered for the F3 Half Marathon or 5k, there is still time to do so online.  Use promo code BIBRAVE17 to save $6 on the Half Marathon and BIBRAVE175k for $5 off the 5k.
