Rainy Day Discounts- Headphones, Socks and Races

 

Happy Thursday!

Where has this week gone? Really, I mean I just don’t know. Holy smokes. Anyone else feel like that?

 

I slept in past my alarm this morning again. Boo.

It was a bit gloomy though when I rolled out of bed an hour later than planned. We were pretty pumped about it actually.

Why?

Um, because we could use our awesome umbrellas.

And yes, we also like to sing in the rain.

Since I didn’t get up early enough to get my run in before having to get the boys ready for school, I took advantage of some time afterwards to run outside. I rarely get to run outside and I don’t think I had for about two weeks, so it was pretty exciting.

 

I’m doing the ASICS LA Marathon in just 5 weeks with a group of other bloggers. We’re all working with Coach Kastor a bit leading up to the race. Shoot, which reminds me, I never did my homework assignment. Beavis. Did you do it?

 

Anyhoo….

Those of us involved in the blogger challenge for the marathon got some fabulous Asics gear to train in and such.

We got some cool ASICS running shoes.

We also got some sweet running outfits.

I felt like it was a special occasion since it was raining and I got to run outside and all, so I got dressed up in the new gigs.

My favorite was these PR SHELTER™ GLOVES. They not only have a cool hidden pocket, but they are touch screen friendly and you can still use your iPhone with them on.

I’ve been saying someone needs to make gloves like this. I guess they already do. The smart one that I am didn’t figure it out until after my run which went down a little something like this.

Then I read the tag.

So smart.

Oh, and not sure if you remember my review of the Koss Headphones as part of a campaign with FitFluential in December, but I’ve been wearing them a lot lately.

2014-02-06 10.20.08

I like that they are affordable, but still have good sound quality.

They usually run for $29.99 each, but for a limited time they have all models (FitBuds and FitClips) and all colors available at Walgreens for only $19.99! A pretty sweet deal. I like keeping them in my car as an extra set.

Second part of my run was on the treadmill.

I have a few fun races in the next couple of weeks.

 

Mermaid Half Marathon San Diego 2/8/14

Coronado Valentine’s Day 1 mile run (The boys and I want to do this, but haven’t signed up yet.)

Women’s Running San Diego Half Marathon and 5K 2/22/14

I ran the Women’s Running San Diego Half Marathon last year (my recap is here). It’s a really fun, casual race with a pretty sweet medal and lots of cool goodies at the finish party.

Some information about the race this year:

· Runners can sign up to be part of Team Edith to raise money for the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer foundation.

· Women’s Running Magazine Editor-in-Chief Jessie Sebor will be there running, as will the entire Women’s Running Magazine editorial team.

· Entertainment Tonight Host Mary Hart will also be racing for Team Edith

· Registration closes 2/16 or when sold out

· The race starts at NTC Park at Liberty Station in SD

I’m excited about it.

I have a discount code for you too so you can come run.

The code is WHYIRUN4. It’s $15 off the half marathon between now and registration close on 2/16.

Register HERE.

Is anyone running it?

I’m still admiring last year’s medal.

Oh and, I already told you about this one, but if you need a race to sign up for after the Women’s Running Half Marathon, you can use code MAMAROCKS for $10 off the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and 1/2.

Smile

And, whelp, I guess that’s it for the discounts at the moment. Wait, I have another one for 15% off NuttZo in case you need some. That’s STUFT-15.

Dang I love that stuff.

 

Hey, look at that, no food pictures today. It must be your lucky day. Ha.

 

Have a good one!

 

Do you have any races coming up?

Just curious, what makes you sign up for a race? (location, post race treats, the medal, the course, etc.)

    I’m running the Women’s Half San Diego, too! I’m hoping with the new change in logo that their medals are nice this year (yes, I only run for the medals hah). I am super jealous about the LA Marathon and all the goodies you’ve gotten. I wish I could have done that, too! But, I guess Ironman is a little more at the top of my list right now ;-)

    P.s. Your boys are too cute.

    I’m jealous of all the races available in the sunny places of the US! haha I’m driving four hours away for my FIRST half marathon in two weeks (yay!!), so for me location is a BIG deal!
    I love the Asics gear you got, I need to check out their shorts and expand my running wardrobe! And I really need to try Nuttzo too, everything you make with it looks so good!

    I still need to sign up for my next race! it has been so long and I am ready to get back out there! Right now I am looking for races that are close so we don’t have to break the bank!

  4. 4

    My next race will be March 15th – the Clarksville, TN 1/2. I picked this one because of location – my hubby’s family lives an hour from Clarksville, so we can make this a visit/race weekend! ;) And TN is a pretty state to run in!

    I love all of your new Asics stuff!!
    You have a lot of races coming up – I’m pretty lame and rarely race – best way to stay injury free (for me!) and still run!!!

    My next race is the LA marathon, my first full! I’m excited! After that I have some local 10ks and halfs. I want to find a cool local trail run to do next, that’s on my radar. Location, swag, food, price……it all influences what race I choose. Oh and if any cool people will go with me!

    Those umbrellas are adorable. They make me want to sing in the rain, too. All my two-year old daughter wants to do is run. Are there any kids’ runs in San Diego? I saw you mentioned the Coronado Mile on Vakentines’ Day. Are there others?

    Ah Asics…my favorite since high school (I am about to turn 41). I basically never race since high school and I wasn’t much good then, I just like to run. But if/when I do they as usually for causes. The last race I did was an Eagle Scout project called the Amazing Race for Autism (or something close to that). It was wonderful. Challenges along the way that also educated on Autism. I couldn’t run in the beginning due to a poorly planned vegan donut. Fortunately I never had a prayer of placing anyway. It was a fun race though.

    Kristin, what kind of sun glasses do you have on in your pictures? Oakleys? I’m looking for some new sunnies to run in and I like the look of yours :) Thanks!
