Blue Ridge Marathon GIVEAWAY!!!!!

5 Nov

The time has come!!! I just ran the Savannah Rock N Roll Half Marathon yesterday, now it is time to move onto the NEXT challenge in my running career….it is a career right?? Just one you spend money on, instead of making money on….

Today i open up my blog to everyone who would like to participate in Americas Toughest Road Marathon!! It is on the list of the top 15 of the worlds toughest marathons. I will be choosing a winner at random from my comments to come join me and many of my other moms at Moms RUN This Town who are participating in this event. i will be choosing the winner on november 17th.

From the site:

Local runners have crafted one of the most challenging and beautiful marathons on the east coast. In 2010 the full marathon course included 3,076 feet of total elevation gain and 6,140 feet of total elevation change, but that just wasn’t enough.

The 2012 course includes 3,620 feet of total elevation gain and 7,234 feet of total elevation change. Kind of gives new meaning to runner’s high.

The uphill portions will test each runner’s strength and endurance while the equally challenging downhill sections are sure to weed out those who are unprepared. The breathtaking views and stunning Blue Ridge Mountain scenery will offer some reprieve to runners as they persevere to the finish line! Are you up for the challenge of America’s Toughest Road Marathon?

    I liked MRTT and Blue Ridge Marathon. I don’t have a tweet. I started running for my mental and physical well being. However, it has developed into much more. It has become a great sense of accomplishment for me as I have never done sports or been athletic in anyway at all. And even more, I have met some of the most wonderful and supportive people in the world through running. I cherish all the friendships I have made along the way. I pray that I can run till I am 100 as Jeff Galloway would say.
