Happy Friday, everyone!
I want to thank everyone for their comments on my James Island Connector Run 10K post. Everyone commented with great insights on the race, what went right and wrong, and how I can (hopefully) improve for future races and next year. You guys are the best.
Earlier this week, I received a pleasant e-mail to cheer me up. I was selected as an ambassador for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon and 5K on April 8, 2017.
A few of my friends ran the Savannah Women’s Half last year and had nothing but positive things to say, which is one reason I applied to be an ambassador. This year’s race is the week after the Cooper River Bridge Run, making it a great choice for a girl’s weekend to keep the momentum going after the Bridge Run. It would also make a great spring goal race, as you could race a half marathon before the weather heats up. The 5K is also a great option if you prefer shorter and faster races or if you’re not ready to tackle a half marathon.
The Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon and 5K is also a great choice for those who run for charities, as a portion of the proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I believe in giving back to the community and races that do this, which is why I’m selective in the races I run and especially any race I promote to others.
The race also offers generous course time limits on what looks to be a beautiful course, along with women’s specific apparel. What lady doesn’t want a flattering women’s-specific cut race shirt? Although men are not eligible for awards, they are allowed to run the race (which I agree with).
If you’d like to register, use the discount code TINY to save $10 off your registration fee. $10 is a pretty generous discount and will buy you a tasty post-race drink or treat after running your first or maybe your fastest half marathon.
As the race gets closer, I’ll share more details about it, as well as my training and goals.
I hope to see some of you in Savannah on April 8, 2017!
