I was given an exciting opportunity to participate in this year's 10th Annual Athleta Iron Girl Clearwater Half Marthon on April 14th! This year's event has 5K and half marathon distances with a new start and finish in Coachman Park, Clearwater. With the new START/FINISH location, now there is no need for shuttles. YEAH! I ran the Iron Girl 5K in 2011 and wasn't a fan of the shuttles. I'm thrilled to check out this new course
Iron Girl's mission is to empower women toward a healthy lifestyle.
Here's some information about Iron Girl
