Congratulations to Jen who won last week’s GIVEAWAY and will receive a $50 credit to the RunVermont store as our way of saying thanks for helping us promote Saucony’s Run4Good app. We now have 4,338 miles logged towards our goal of 10,000 miles! We only have until March 31 to meet the goal (and receive the maximum of our Saucony grant) so if you run with your phone, please take a minute to download the app and run for us! Details here.
I’m short on words today.
Not sure why, but I’m blaming it on the blanket of gray that has tucked itself in nice and tight over Vermont for the past month. Oh, OK, last Saturday, was an exception, but generally speaking this winter is probably one of the most dismal I can recall. I feel pretty tapped out and I know I’m not alone. The good news is that eventually the sun will shine we’ll all be our jolly selves again.
If you live in the local area and are looking for company on your long (or short) runs, be sure to check out our newly updated list of Marathon Training and Community Runs. We would love to run with you!
If the thought of running with new friends doesn’t improve your disposition, perhaps the opportunity to win a whole lotta cash will! Our friend and title sponsor, KeyBank is hosting a $5000 Upgrade Contest!
If you’re driving around in a beater of a car, or are desperate to renovate a room in your home, this one’s for you. All you have to do is take a picture of your broken down rig or worn out room, and upload it to the contest page. The contest is only open through March 29, so enter today.
Just in case you’re not in need of a new car or new room, today we’re giving away a $25 Key Possibilities Card just for fun. Key Possibilities cards work just like debit cards at any store that accepts MasterCard. No need to open a Key account to use the card.
Tell us: When you’re visiting an area for the first time to race, what do you do to get your bearings before race morning?
