Wanna become BFFs with Olympic marathoner Shalane Flanagan?
|Shalane and Kara, I know you two are tight, |
but is there room for one more?
|Hmm, maybe I'll become lightning fast if I hang |
w/more Olympic- caliber athletes...
And it's not just a race, it's an entire weekend of festivities and events, October 19, 20, and 21.
It's like the running world's very own version of woodstock.
|I know how to throw a peace symbol |
mid-race, I'll fit in perfectly.
-weekend will include seminars, live music, and running films
-pre-race dinner on Saturday 10/20 with the Runner's World editors
-dates: October 19-21
-location: the beautifully refurbished Bethlehem Steel Mill and ArtsQuest SteelStacks Campus
Prices are listed here on the registration page, they range from $40 for the 5K to $90 for the half...but since you're my buddy, you don't have to pay full price. The folks over at Runner's World also gave me the discount code BLOGGER25 to share with you for 10% off of any race!
Do you have any plans for a half marathon this Fall?
Funny thing is that I've never raced a half marathon. Time to change that...well, not with this one because I want to save my legs for a Canadian marathon the first week of November that I've been eyeing, but hopefully by next spring!
