One week ago today, I ran the 2013 See Jane Run 5k for the second year in a row with my good friend Lianna. We had such a great time last year that we decided we would run it every year together to kick off summer. A friend/running/tradition type thing. And besides, who wouldn’t want to run for chocolate and champagne?
The motivating posters that SJR has are amazing. This one is my favorite and Lianna and myself have to take a picture with it every time.
Another awesome See Jane Run event is in the books! Chocolate, champagne, and more fun race memories with friends to add to the vault. Thank you for a fun and beautiful morning in Alameda.
Are any of my blog readers in Boise, Idaho? Or do you know of anyone in the Boise area? See Jane Run is having their annual 5k and Half Marathon in Boise as well and registration is still available for their June 22, 2013 event. Sign up and register and you are guaranteed to have a fantastic time. SJR puts on amazing events to women athletes on all levels. You get super cute bling, chocolate and champagne (in a collectible glass champagne glass for you to keep!). Check out the SJR Boise race page here.
I’m proud to announce that I was selected as a See Jane Run Ambassador! See Jane Run has been a brand that I connected with from the very start when I went from ZERO running to training for my first Half Marathon. Their Rockridge store was where I had my first gait analysis and bought my first pair of legit running shoes (Asic’s Gel-Kayano 17’s). I’m super excited that I was selected to be apart of their Ambassador program- they are such an awesome company that represents women athletes to their utmost, something that I highly respect and connect with.
See Jane Run was started here in the Bay Area, and not only do they have their annual Half Marathon and 5k races that takes place in Alameda every June, but they also have events in Boise (Idaho), Seattle (Washington) and Wichita (Kansas)! Last year, my good friend Lianna and myself ran their 5k race for the first time and it was such a fun and well-organized event that we decided it will be our “annual kick-off to summer” race to run together. I can’t wait to run it with her in a few weeks!
