Congrats to Cindy who won last week’s GIVEAWAY THURSDAY! Cindy resolves to “surround myself with more positive people” in 2013. I read every single one of the 108 comments we received last week and I was both impressed and inspired by your goals. For those of you with running-related goals, let us know how we can support you. Feel free to ask us your questions, share your successes and let us know when you need help moving forward.
Registration for this event opens Monday, January 14 at 6:00am, and you may just want to plan on getting up early for it. Last year the race sold out so quickly (in just a matter of hours) that we created a second wave to accommodate the demand. We’ll offer both waves again this year (9am & 11am) in order to accommodate a total field of 1200 runners. (To be clear: once we’re sold out, that’s it…we’re not secretly harboring plans for a third wave.)
While we call the Half Marathon “Unplugged” many of our runners tell us the race far exceeds their expectations. From bus service to the start line to the beautiful lakefront, mostly-bikepath course to excellent post-race food and complimentary post-race yoga, the race does have its share of amenities. That said, we don’t award any prizes, you won’t receive a medal at the finish line and if you require water every mile, you’ll need to carry your own.
Learn more here and don’t forget to set your alarm for Monday morning.

If getting yourself your new gear is high on your priority list, today we’re giving away a KBVCM running jacket:
Tell us if and how you track your miles. Do you keep a fancy spreadsheet, rely on a Garmin, record every run on Map My Run? (Full disclosure: I’m asking for selfish reasons. Keeping better track of my mileage is one of my resolutions and I haven’t figured out how I want to do it.)
