Last chance to enter!

Hey all! I'm really excited about the response I've gotten about the Pink Half.   So many of you are really juiced about this race! And for good reason. It promises to create amazing memories for all of us running.  And, of course, there is nothing better than getting to enjoy a race knowing that you are helping out a good cause, too. Just wanted to post quickly to let you know that I will be choosing a winner first thing Thursday morning so be sure to enter if you haven't already.

Also, FYI, the Pink Series is hosting The Pink 5k in Alpine on April 23rd. This race is a ladies only event (yay!) on a screaming downhill course. (Can you say PR?!) It's a perfect kickoff for your half marathon training AND if you are registered for the half marathon you get to run the 5k for only $15! Very cool. So much of the fun stuff that is offered at the Pink Half is making an appearance at the 5k- running with women, great race swag and handsome men in suits and pink ties greeting us at the finish. Love it! Also, just to make sure they covered all their bases, the race directors are having an Easter egg hunt and other Easter festivities immediately following the race. Will be a fun one for your kiddos to come and cheer you on and then get to play a little themselves. Can I just give a huge shout-out for women race directors?! Leave it to gals to delve into the details and think of everything. I am loving everything I know about both of these races! To register for the 5k, just follow this link to get to the registration page and you can sign up for the half, the 5k, or both races in one fell swoop.

I'll leave you with a pic of me in the pink compression socks I'll know I'll be sporting at one or both of these races.
Love my Ragnar Team!

Good luck, guys! See you back here Thursday!


  1. Are you doing Ragnar again this year? I am captain of team "See Mom Run" for Wasatch Back and can't wait (I ran on a different team last year and it was so much fun). SLC Marathon is two months from today. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I'm just catching up on this and I think a women's-only half marathon is absolutely awesome! I run the New York Mini 10K in NYC, a women's only race, and LOVE IT! The camraderie and atmosphere just can't be beat. Last year I was injured and couldn't run the MORE/FITNESS Half Marathon with my friends, but it was incredible to see thousands of women, just women, running together, supporting each other, and living healthy, active lives. I wish I lived closer to Utah so I could run in the Pink Half!
