It’s time to go running and sweat out gravy and whipped cream so let’s hear it Running Tuesday! What are you doing today, what’s your workout like?
Hey would you like to run a race…. for free?? I’ve got an entry that I have to give away today so this is gonna be fast and furious.
Christina from 13.1 LA has offered a free entry for the 13.1 LA Half Marathon on January 16, 2011.
I ran this race last year and had a fun time running along the beach. This year’s race will start at 7:13am in Santa Monica on January 16th.
If you registered today, it’d set your Christmas fund back $80 but you can run it for free!
All you have to do to enter is comment and tell me,
What’s your favorite race that you’ve run?
Thanks to Christina MG for the entry!
Today’s Cat lady Blogs is Jenn from Knack for Nutrition!
After returning from the land of bread and cheese, I did something kind of nuts: I registered for a half-marathon. You see, I do not have the ‘running gene’ nor have I ever run anything more than a 5k.
But my weight was at an all time high and I decided to use the looming deadline as motivation to get my butt in gear.
Over the course of the past several months, I documented every high and low of training on my blog. And since I like dramatics, you know the retelling of my first failed 6 mile ‘long’ run includes as many water works as the day I crossed the finish line. Speaking of which, crossing that finish line was one of the most incredible experiences.
These days you can find me unsuccessfully trying to secure employment so I am not living in a box on the road come December while gearing up for my 2nd round of training.
That’s right, I am doing it all over again at the SunTrust National Half next March! With 20lbs. less of me to carry across those 13.1 miles, I anticipate a much faster race, so long as I can avoid the lure of cheap beer on Thirty Thursdays. Oh, college.
