    Those cookies just made it onto my to-do list for this weekend! Thanks for sharing!

    Low price is always the best “gimmick” to get me to a race!

    All the races that I’ve done in Australia don’t even offer medals! We’re starting to get the Colour Run and Warrior Dash-type events now, but there really aren’t that many “gimmicky” events on offer here.

    Also…chewy cookies are my downfall. Those look amazing.

    Great job on the cookies! I wish they had this race in South Florida. By the time I make the travel arrangements, I would probably break even. πŸ™‚

    I absolutely love looking at race photos, there are always some hilarious ones that really should never be seen in public. I love those cookies, they came out perfect looking!

    I love the idea that the prices start really low and gradually increase as more people enter. I don’t think we have anything similar to that around here but it’s a really good concept. And free race photos! I would love free race photos! It normally costs so much money to buy the professional ones. (Although I’m not very photogenic, but it would give me more options to choose from!)

    Price of course is the biggest thing. I signed up for a race a year in advance just to get the best deal before. I always love looking at the medal, so bonus points if it’s an awesome one!

    Oh gosh I never end up making the things I pin, usually because I don’t want to go buy all the ingredients or because I don’t want to have a big dish all for myself! Haha, dangerous. Those sound good though, I love sugar cookies so I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to chocolate ones!

    Ooo, those cookies look and sound so good! Just a note- I think the Kitchenaid attachment that’s really meant for cookie dough is the flat white thing. The wire one is better for lighter things like whipped cream. May be worth playing around with πŸ™‚

      I came to say the same thing – paddle all the way!

      Cookies look awesome though! πŸ™‚

    I LOVED the Best Damn Race! Great course, great energy and great price! And, it produced the only race photo of me that wasn’t absolutely hideous πŸ˜‰

    I’ve never seen a spectacular gimmick to get people to sign up for races, but I don’t race often. Anyway, those cookies… wow. They look quite delicious!

    I have hope that I can make a perfect looking cookie too! But I don’t have an awesome mixer so I’ll be doing it by hand…. wonder if that hurts/helps?
    I can’t wait to get in for BDR! Hopefully I can squeak in under the $1 registration – last year I registered 3 days before (paying full price), but it really was the best damn race! Join me for maybe another PR run ??? haha!

    The only gimmicky sort of race I’ve fallen victim to was one the school I went to, UCLA, put on last year- it was during rivalry week against USC and the school that had the most runners/best times ended up having money donated to charity in their name.

    That’s a really cool concept!!! I love the pricing and free photos, but I agree, my race photo’s are always really sad and I look like I wanna cry lol

    I’ll have to try these cookies. They look pretty fool proof, which is for sure a must for me.

    Have a good weekend!

    Those look to die for! And congrats on getting them to turn out picture style – I’ve yet to be able to do that πŸ™‚

    I’ve never seen a race with a rolling price structure b efore – I think that’s awesome! Makes it more affordable in addition to being a non corny publicity draw in!

    Cookies are the greatest food group ever. Pinning this recipe.
    I think price is the #1 thing that motivates me- if I can find a really good deal, I’ll go for it.

      I was all about these cookies and then just looked at the ingredients- 14 tbsp’s of butter??? No way!!

    I was taken by the night race/glow stick theme for a race once. Ended up dropping $45 on a 5K and it was easily the worst managed race I’ve ever run. I’m now SUPER hesitant to sign up for a race based on gimmick. I’m glad you had a better experience at the Best Damn Race than I had at my 5K!

    I just started racing so the lower the price the better. This would definitely get me interested.

    Happy you were able to get your cookies! I’m sure that the site was down from other people trying to get to the recipe to. They look great!

    I ran a color me rad race and while it was fun, it wasn’t worth the money at all.

    sidenote- as an avid baker, I’d suggest using the paddle attachment on your kitchen aid. The whisk attachment is for fluffy things like whipped cream and mixing together dry only ingredients such as flours, baking sodas. Otherwise the whisk may cause a change in texture in addition to wasting batter.

    I really like to sign up for races with bling at the end πŸ˜‰ though last night I was thinking my medal rack would probably appreciate I signed up for a few without (I’m thinking they’ll become Christmas tree ornaments this year?)

    Mmm…pinned that cookie recipe! A “crazy course” is what makes me sign up for races…I registered for my second Warrior Dash this summer! The Color Run also looks really fun.
