LA 1/2 Marathon… GIVEAWAY!


A few days ago I was contacted by a social media rep from US Road Sports and Entertainment Group. Much to my excitement, they contacted me to offer one of my readers a FREE entry to the Los Angeles Half Marathon!

13.1 Los Angeles Half Marathon
Sunday, January 15, 2012 
Start Location: Venice Beach Boardwalk at Rose
Start Time: 7:00 AM

US Road Sports offered me a free entry as well, but seeing as I’m in grad school and don’t have an unlimited “travel the US for running events” fund (who needs a healthy diet? I should just eat ramen to save more $ for fun races and travel), I won’t be able to rock this race with you.

Ideally, it’d be nice for the winner of this giveaway to actually use the free entry. So if you live in Alaska and aren’t planning on making the trek to LA in 5 weeks for this race, please be considerate of the folks who would love to run the half marathon.

To enter (separate comments for each entry, please!):
1.) Become a follower of this blog, or let me know if you already are (leave a comment to let me know)
2.) Tell me what your favorite distance to race is, and why!
3.) If you could run a race in any city in the US, where would it be?

Answer all three if you want to triple your chances of winning! I’ll use to pick the winner on Monday, December 12!

Good luck!

    I love 13.1 because it’s fun and yet still a challenge both mentally and physically!

    Any city in the US….hmmm….that’s a toughie! I might have to say NYC because I lived there and it would be so fun to race with all my NY friends in one of my favorite cities!

    I love the full marathon because it is a distance you have to respect and it really humbles me. I would love to run a marathon in Alaska! (and I’m a follower)

    Hey lady! What a great giveaway! Don’t enter me in it, but I wanted to “fake participate” okay, well they are real answers… but I know I won’t be able to travel to run it… SO, I’ll just give you my answers for fun!

    That is such a tough question! Definitely not a 5k or a 10k, I’d have to say the 13.1 because it’s just enough to run “balls to the way!” the whole way, but not a “sprint till you die” type of thing! I mean, don’t get me wrong I think I’ve fallen in LOVE with the 26.2… but ya know… I’m not sure if it’s more of a running event… or an emotional event.. haha.

    As far as running in any city goes, girl… WE LIVE IN COLORADO! It doesn’t get any better than this! :D Maybe somewhere on the east coast, haven’t run over there yet! :D

    Not sure if it’s too late to enter but just saw a post from Sam.
    1.) I just became a flower
    2.) My favorite distance is the half because it’s still challenging but not too draining.
    3.) New York! Hopefully one day
