I’ve lost my damn mind and want to run a half marathon. Can you help me find a race?

I’m a sorta new runner, and back on my feet after some injuries. After a 3 month break and back to running only 3 weeks, I’m pretty happy that I’m almost back to my old distances, and even improved my time some. I’m addicted - and want to work towards a half marathon maybe sometime in the late Fall or Winter.
I live in the DC area, but am willing to travel and make a trip out of it. I like running in cooler temps (35-45 degrees would be ideal), would kind of like to run a fun, medium-large race. Since I’m still new at this, I’d prefer a relatively flat course, though I’m now less afraid of hills
than I used to be. Time wise, I average a fairly relaxed 5k in about 27.5-28 minutes.
Are there any good half marathons for first timers?
