Free Iron Girl Race Entry Giveaway

by Meghann on March 9, 2012

I have a special Friday treat for all the Florida locals!

Iron Girl has graciously offered up one free race entry to a lucky Meals and Miles reader for their Clearwater race series next month.

The free race entry is good for either the 5K, 5K mother daughter team, or the half marathon on Sunday, April 22, 2012.

I ran the Iron Girl Half last year (check out the recap HERE) and can attest to the gorgeous course around the city.

My favorite part was the beachside finish line. There’s nothing like playing in the water after running 13.1 miles!

awww…. I miss these girls!

My not-so-favorite part?! The bridges! Lots and lots of bridges!

Luckily – rumor has it – that the Iron Girl organization wasn’t a big fan of all the bridges either. They re-did the course for 2012 and removed a bridge or two to keep their runners safe and happy.

Smart move, Iron Girl. Smart move.

Unfortunately, Iron Girl is the same weekend as my sister’s bridal shower, so I will not be running this year’s race (boo). However, I promise I’ll be there in spirit – cheering all of my iron girls on!

My Austin Running Buddy

March 9, 2012

Good Morning! I tend to get a little giddy whenever I meet fellow runners during my travels. There’s something about running that just bonds people and there’s no better way to get to know a person (or city!) than running with them.

We Have Arrived

We made it! SXSW 2012 baby! We arrived in Austin a little later than planned thanks to some traffic and hotel issues. We had just enough time to throw our stuff in the hotel room before heading out to Chevy’s Road Trip Welcome Party. Team Fresh Squeezed = VIPs 😉 Each team had a 5 more »
