Today is National Runner’s Day. Hooray! Does this mean we get presents?
UPDATE: Apparently it is National RUNNING Day, not RUNNER’S day. So I guess we’re all supposed to run?
Actually, I have no idea what we’re supposed to do to celebrate this occasion, but there are some great things going on!
Like the $20 off of any Rock n’ Roll race discount when you register today. This is part of their Runners Day promotion. Aaron and I are registering for the RnR Arizona half in January 2013. Today, we are only paying $70, which is about HALF what we paid last year. If you are wanting to do any of the Rock n Roll races, today is the day to register (except for Vegas. Sorry, Whitney). I ran a PR half marathon at Arizona last year so I feel like I should pay homage to the race that did so much (like convince me that I could qualify for Boston), plus Phoenix is a mere 6 hour drive from here AND I have college friends there.
Other exciting news includes winning the May #runchat challenge! You may remember that I won a medi-dyne range roller from participating in runchat a couple of months ago. I kind of figured that meant my days as a winner were over. But the May challenge was to run someplace new, so I entered my Durango Trail run into the mix, and I was randomly selected as the grand prize winner of some Pearl Izumi gear. I’ve never bought anything Pearl Izumi, so I’m excited to try it out! I’ve only ever heard good things.
Turns out getting involved with #runchat has not only provided me with valuable knowledge and great twitter/blog friends, but I’ve also scored some great swag! Thanks to the #runchat peeps for hosting such a great twitter chat AND some awesome contests!
Even MORE excitement comes from knowing that while Aaron and I are training for our first marathon, Rachel (NOT Raquel as I have been calling her), Hyedi, and Dominick will all be training for their first marathon at the same time! Marathon training is more fun when you have friends running along with you!
So, HAPPY RUNNER’S DAY my run-tastic friends!
Question: has anyone seen any good gluten free food blogs? Aaron thinks he might be allergic to gluten, so we are thinking of trying out the gluten free lifestyle for a couple of weeks to see if his stomach issues go away. Thanks!
