Giveaway! - Michelob Ultra Chicago 13.1 Marathon

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm really excited about several things lately.  One was that I was offered a free entry in the 2014 Michelob Ultra Chicago 13.1 Marathon!  And even though I have the Esprit De She Triathlon the next day, I still want to try to do the half marathon the day before.  If I don't think I can manage both, I'll drop it down to the 5k instead. 

But you know how it goes, I want to...


The next thing I'm excited about is to be able to offer a FREE RACE ENTRY to one of my readers!  That's right! The race organizers are providing me with a free entry so that YOU have a chance to run this race also! And if you aren't up for the half marathon distance right now or would just prefer, you can sign up for the 5k!
 



RACE INFO

Date: Saturday, June 7, 2014
Time: 7:00 AM

Location: South Shore Cultural Center (7059 S. Shore Drive, Chicago, IL)
For more information, you can visit their website: http://www.131marathon.com/chicago/

Also like I said in my last post, the race has a nice out and back course which finishes along the beach!  The out and back course provides great opportunities to see your friends running along the course!  It also lets you know how truly far behind the elites you are...which is kind of fun!

Post race beer and pizza is a definite plus (and must)! 

The race benefits the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. You can find out more information here.

  3. I enjoy running the distance required to retrieve cupcakes. So long as it is downhill and I have a wind at my back. That or the distance between me and cookies. I get a lot of satisfaction in thinking that way.

    The half marathon is my favorite. It's long enough to keep my training in check and to challenge me, but not so long that I need to recover for several days following like a marathon.

  10. I really like half-marathons. It's a long enough distance that requires a focused training plan, but not too long to be intimidating. And, I just really love getting that race bling! :)

  25. 10K because you don't have to go so fast that you cough up a lung at the end, but it only takes about an hour of your morning to run the race. I have also metaled in more 10K's than any other distance...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Given I have run more half marathons than any other distance, I guess that would have to make it my favourite.

  27. I love the half marathon. I've been gunning for a sub-2 for awhile.

  28. I love the half marathon, but I'm going for my first full this fall!

    I like the full so I can eat anything I want the rest of the day and not feel guilty.

  30. The marathon--you can't fake thaat distance!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The 10K is my favorite distance because it's definitely still a task to do, but it's short enough to where I feel like I can really, truly, RACE! It's short enough to get some speed going going without burning out, but still feel totally accomplished when it's done!
