I have a growing backlog of things I wanted to talk about, including a winter running challenge, some home barre workout DVDs, upcoming goals, etc., etc., etc. But first - I have a great giveaway to share.
The kind folks at REM-Fit are sponsoring the F^3 Lake Half Marathon this year.
I've never personally run the F^3 Half, since I've always been terrified of racing during the heart of Chicago winter. Plus, the F^3 stands for F-ing Freezing Frozen. How's that for hard-core?
However, I have heard absolutely rave reviews from those that have run this race in the past. Check out recaps from Erin, Amanda, Kelly, Maggie, and Maureen. (Special kudos to Maureen, who has done this race three years in a row!) This is definitely a "badge of honor" race.
REM-Fit is offering one free race registration to anyone who would like to participate!
Here are the race details:
Date: Saturday, January 24, 2015
Time: 10:00 AM CST
Location: Soldier Field, 1410 Museum Campus Drive, Chicago, IL 60605
Swag: A beanie hat, tech gloves, and a finisher medal. (I am told the medals do double duty as bottle-openers, for those of you who may be so inclined.)
BONUS: REM-Fit will provide the giveaway winner with the new REM-Fit Active, which is a sleep and activity tracker.
|Chicago winter has nothing on F^3 runners!|
