Races, Race Discounts, and Running… Oh MY!

It seems like whenever I plan on stepping away from races to focus on speed work, I discover all these races that I just HAVE to run. Every time. Without fail.

Snohomish River Run Half Marathon & 10K

This race is on October 27th this year. I am SO looking forward to it because it is just over 3 months out which gives me lots of time to prepare to kick some major 10K arse. The course is supposed to be nice and flat too which makes it RIGHT up my ally.

Come run it with me and use coupon code SKIPPINGSRR13 for $10 off your entry!!!

Color Me Rad Seattle

This race is on August 10th at Marymoor Park. Now, I am not usually one for having goop thrown at me during a race, but I am seriously considering volunteering for it. It could be REALLY fun throwing goop at other people!

If you plan on running it, use coupon code SEATTLECHILDREN10 and you’ll get 10% off and the race organizers will donate to Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Wanna volunteer? Seattle Children’s Hospital will receive $75 for every volunteer they provide! That is HUGE! If you are interested please email katie.fath@seattlechildrens.org and she will get you signed up with their race coordinator at Color Me Rad. Race coordinators will assign jobs when you sign in on race day to volunteer.

Volunteer positions they are looking to fill:
Packet Pick Up Thurs Aug 8th 9am-2:30pm

Tear Down Crew Saturday Aug 10th noon-5pm

Who wants to do it with me?!

Mustache Dache 2013


Oh. Em. Gee. I am so flipping excited for this race. Last year I freaking slept through my alarm and MISSED it!! I have no idea how that happened. I had to miss this awesomeness.


I will NOT miss out on the action this year! I am planning on putting together a meetup too so if you wanna run it and meet up, let me know!

Man, so many great races coming up! Now if work would just calm the eff down, I could actually run. I seriously feel like a big blob these days guys. I have been working 12 hour days for the past 11 or so days straight. Absolutely brutal. By the time I get home, I barely have enough energy to eat dinner and pass the eff out. The most frustrating of all is that I have a kick ass training plan ready for me to follow and focus on speed.

I am legit excited to start it. I am planning on starting it on Monday. Hold me accountable peeps. I don’t care if I am falling asleep on my ‘mill. I want to make it happen!


How do you balance working insane hours and working out?

What races are you running with me?

Also, shout out to everyone running Ragnar Northwest Passage tomorrow! I am so jealous and wish I was going to be there! Can’t wait to follow all of you!

  1. Mornings girl mornings! It’s hard to get up but once you do you can rest easy the entire day bc you don’t have to find energy to work out! I absolutely love it and I get so much more done now!

    • Gahhhh! I have tried soooo many times to do a morning workout but going to bed at about 1am doesn’t work well with that. I know I need to. It would help SOOO much! A good way to start your day off right! 🙂

  2. 12 hour days are brutalllllll! Sometimes I have a hard time running with an 8hr day (pathetic right?!). I would say mornings as well just to get it out of your way but you’ll probably have to be up at the crack of dawn which can be tough sometimes too…especially with long days! I signed up for the Color Run as well in Vancouver in September! bahhh, SO EXCITED. No greater feeling than signing up for races!
