I ran the Surf City Half with my friends Sarah and Sheila this weekend! Kristina joined us for a few miles too in the middle.
As you know, we decided to make it more of a fun run due to a lot of semi-bad circumstances for each of us (I was sick...and still am dangit...and yes, I am slightly disappointed in myself)...and in that way, it was a huge success! It was a really beautiful day for a run, and Surf City was well-run as always. It better be for the billion dollars it costs for the entry fee, right? We ran around 1:46 and change and stayed together the whole time. It was great to spend time with those girls.
Our pictures definitely put any Healthy Living Bloggers race pics to shame. Hah! I am definitely having more fun than you are and the pictures are #proof!
(sorry for stealing your pics, marathonfoto).
I have also tracked down a new race (Lucky 7!) in Davis, CA, which will be an attempt for a more serious race attempt of a half marathon. Health and non-laziness in workouts for the next month, willing, the stars will align that day for a closer to PR effort. Who wants to sign up for this race with me? COME ON PLS? It's only $50!
GIVEAWAY OF MIZUNO ELIXIRS!!
I'm really excited to be giving away a pair of the Mizuno Elixir 8's today, thanks to Mizuno Running!
The Elixir is my favorite shoe out there on the market. I love it because it's light and smooth enough to run workouts in but stable enough for me to use an an everyday trainer. It's generally made for mild overpronators who want a light shoe.
The updates over the past couple years have been relatively small, IMO, so if you loved the Elixir two years ago, you'd probably still love the latest model.
It's also ridiculous in it's styling and in my opinion ridiculously beautiful. I love looking down and seeing these badboys on my feet.
So here's how you enter to win some new shoes:
1 Entry: Comment (and maybe tell me about a crazy loud piece of clothing you own?)
1 Entry: Follow Mizuno Running on twitter and tweet at me (@fasterbunny) and Mizuno (@MizunoRunning)
1 Entry: Like Mizuno Running North America on Facebook.
It would be awesome if you could comment on the blog with a "1, 2, 3" format of how many entries you get so that it's easier for me to count fairly.
Ie "1) I own a neon jumpsuit 2) Followed Mizuno on twitter and tweeted about it 3) Followed them on Facebook"
Fine Print that's actually bolded: You have to live in the US (sorry), contest ends next Tuesday at 9 PM PST, and you can actually get another model from Mizuno if Elixirs aren't your style / don't work for your stride.)
