Fall race’s and coupon codes

Good morning!  Or afternoon for my east coast readers.  I’m a little late posting today and my only excuse is…well I slept in.  And it was everything I thought it would be.  I guess all of the moving and exploring caught up with me.

It’s a good thing that I am well rested, hydrated and caffeinated because today it my first day of fall race training!  I am stoked!!

I told you guys about the Mermaid Duathlon in the beautiful beach town of Capitola I’ll be doing in October last week.  I still swear they designed the course with me in mind. 

If you want to become a Mermaid with me, use coupon code SKINNYCHICK10 {all caps} for 10% off your entry fee.

They just released the official race shirt and I am digging it big time.  A major plus that it’s designed for women, so it doesn’t look “boxy.”  Did I just make up a new word?  Just roll with this one mmmkay.  Winking smile  Oh and the fact that it’s pink is a major bonus.

Well I am uber excited to add another half marathon to the list, Iron Girl in Santa Rosa, CA.

I am officially ready to redeem myself from my last half.  If you are interested in torturing yourself with me, use coupon code SKINNYCHICK for $10 off your entry fee.

Which is probably why you may have seen this badge on my sidebar.  Winking smile

What’s on your fall race schedule?

If you could design a race shirt, what would it look like?

I’m a sucker for tanks & obnoxious colors, so a neon pink/yellow tech tank.  Oh and if budget wasn’t a problem, I’d let the folks at Lululemon make it for me. 

Do you have training cycles or do just train all year?

I typically like to train all year and stay in half marathon shape.  I’m hoping to build back up and having something to train for is a huge motivation.

  1. If I knew I was going to be out on West Coast I would sign up for a race with you!

    If I could design a race shirt- it would actually be a WOMEN’s shirt (I hate when races, or atleast bigger races use unisex or men’s shirts) I want a shirt that fits me, and actually looks cute! I agree on the fun colors too!

    I am pretty much training year round but I do make sure to have a few down times throughout the year where I can back off a little-for the mind and body sake!

    I love discounts on races! And if I lived within, oh I don’t know, 1,000 miles of you, I’d be there in a second 👌
    I train most of the year but take December and January off. It’s just so cold and snowy and icy. By February I’m desperate enough to start treadmill training until I can get outside again around April.

  3. I definitely did not stay in half marathon shape last year. This year, we’ll see. I’m a lot more dedicated to running now, so I don’t want to give it up. Living in WI and running in winter will be a test though. I hope to stay in shape all year round to open up other race possibilities (maybe a spring half?). Right now I’m training for a half at the end of September. Can’t wait!

  4. My big Fall race is the Chicago Marathon, but I’m also doing another Duathlon as well as a 10-miler at Disney World. There’s a good chance that I will add a second marathon in November as well.
    I wish that race shirts could be sleeveless…not a sleeve fan.
    Train all year baby! How else can I justify beer, pizza and nachos?? (Coffee needs no justification)

  5. San Jose Rock n Roll Half in October!

    Train (or at least workout) all year- how else would I be able to eat massive amounts of sugar without inducing a diabetic coma?

  6. In October I am racing the 13.1 Race in Dallas and in January I will be racing Houston Marathon. Can’t wait!!!!

  7. I have a couple of races in mind for this year. The diva half marathon in December or the Santa Run. Maybe the Chapman 5k in October. I just need to run.

  8. I’m actually thinking of doing the See Jane Run Sprint Tri on Oct 5th. The day before my RnR SJ 1/2 marathon. Dunno if it’d be too much to do in one weekend. . . Next year I’ll sign up for a Mermaid :)

    I was eyeing Iron Girl earlier. I need to see how it would fit into my marathon training schedule. I think it’s the week before Big Sur 1/2 (right in monterey Nov 17) and have to make the choice on which one I’d want to do. . .

    I like the idea of being in 1/2 marathon shape all year. I felt pretty strong earlier in the year when I was at it :)

  9. The Iron Girl race is really, really tempting! It’s so close to me, I could go down for the day. I would need to see if it lines up with the Ragnar I will be participating in that month. I do like being in 1/2 marathon shape all year round.
