Discounts, Deals, and Digging out of the Funk

It's been quiet on here lately. But I have been busy... and I bring gifts! Well sort of.. read on for Race Discounts, Giveaways, and upcoming awesomeness! :) 




So lately I've been in a kinda "funk".
fanpop.com
No, not THAT kind of funk...
giphy.com
Yeah, that's better. Mostly it hit me after my realization that my first Ultra wasn't going to be happening as soon as I hoped. (Can read more about that HERE). I haven't been running as much, and just been a little down.

But have no fear! I finally drug myself out for a sunset run and it was like hitting a "reset" button! I feel like I'm finally getting back in the game and back on track. Phoenix Half is in two weeks... so I'll be just aiming to finish, but I can finally start making plans for a big comeback! :)


MEANWHILE, just because I wasn't running doesn't mean I wasn't keeping busy.  I have some GREAT discounts for some awesome races coming up, all thanks to my run group #RunEatTweetAZ!
Let me break down all the awesome.

Run3rd5k Discount & Giveaway

First off, this one ANYONE can get behind! Run3rd5k is local, but also has a VIRTUAL option.  What makes this one so special? It benefits an after-school running program for kids here in Arizona. The teacher who runs it pays for a lot of it out of her own pocket. She's passionate about it and it's an amazing program..

Also, get *THIS*, Sean Astin... actor who's played in Goonies, Lord of the Rings, Rudy and more.. he's going to be there! He'll be helping to get more people to donate to such a great cause.  Now, on to what's in it for *YOU*.

Promo code "RUNEATTWEET" gets you 10% OFF, but *also* enters you in to WIN an autographed DVD from Sean Astin himself! Virtual race option counts.

The first winner is chosen on March 1st and the second winner on April 1st.
Get signed up! And if you're an AZ local, come run the 5k with Sean Astin on April 11th for an amazing cause!

Now this one is just for the AZ locals... an amazing way to celebrate St. Patty's Day, the Kiss Me I'm Irish Run! There's a 17k/8k/4k/and 1k fun run!


 Here's just a few of the things unique about this race:

Tucson Marathon & Half-Marathon
I've done the Tucson Half-Marathon a few years ago and loved it.  Always told myself I wanted to go back and do the Full. Well, 2015 is that year!  It's a great race, downhill, and in December so it's GREAT Arizona weather! A little chilly at the start but quickly warms up. My group #RunEatTweetAZ will be running it together and are even going down this fall for a group run along the race route! Can't wait. 


You can sign up for the Tucson Marathon or Half-Marathon with code "RET10" for 10% off! Join us for all the fun this December!
