The Pumpkin King 5k

The post is sponsored by Level Up Virtual Runs and no other compensation is given.

I have been slacking on running lately most of this year, I am slowly (a little too slowly) getting back into it. I have gained weight and I have missed it. It seems my life is a non-stop whirlwind and its quite annoying.

I have a future race planned out later this month, and since it is Halloween time and I am excited for the holidays, I am going to jump in and participate in The Pumpkin King 5K Virtual Run.

The one thing that I like about virtual runs is that I can run / walk them anytime and anywhere. Plus, no matter where you live, you can even join me! We can earn the same bling!

The cost is only $25 - which is super reasonable. BUT if you use code PUMPKINKING you can get 10% off! That extra discount is basically a Starbucks Coffee. :-)

I will be running my Virtual Run this weekend - when do you plan on running yours? Are you going to join me in The Pumpkin King 5K?

2011 Christmas Run Packet Pick-Up

Today was one of those super cray-cray days where I ALMOST forgot to pick up my race packet for the Christmas Run tomorrow morning.

I got busy with end of the school year things, grocery shopping things, and going to the post office.

Then I remembered, Hey it's 3pm. The race packet pick-up starts at 3.

The BF and I raced over to the Boise High cafeteria to get my number. Thank goodness there wasn't a whole lot of people there.
They made you look for your race number on a print out on one side of the room. Then go over to the other side of the room and get your race number. Then stand in line for your goodie bag, then shirt, then gloves.

The goodie bag included a free haircut coupon that expires Jan. 31, 2012 at SportClips. The BF is pleased about that. And a free ice cream coupon at a sweet shoppe called Goodys. They make good egg creams. Yum.
Shirt is long sleeved and 100% cotton. (Ugh) It has some glitter sparkles on it for snow on the design. Which doesn't make up for the fact that it's 100% cotton. But it is cute. And there are little gloves that we got too. One hand green, one hand red. If the BF would have signed up we would have had 2 of each. They were handing out jingle bells too. I took one but I won't wear it because it isn't jingly enough.

I barely had enough time today to get everything ready for tomorrow morning before I had to go to work today. All my clothes are set out. I have my Garmin charged and ready for 2.5 miles and my bib all set up on my Race Lite Go.

Just in case anyone wants to torture themselves with the Seattle Marathon in 2012, I did get an email today from the Seattle Marathon with a code for $5-$10 off race fees for the 2012 race.  This code works until Feb. 18. 2012. The code is 12TAKE10

Here is the Christmas Run Race Review.
