Yesterday, my boss gave me a magazine that made him think of me: Blue Ridge Outdoors Runtown USA edition (March 2010). Since I'm in advertising I first looked at all the ads then went back and read some of the articles. In a lot of the ads they talked about giveaways, free races, running partners, cool gear, etc. I decided to check out a few of their websites and become facebook fans so I could get all the updates. My friend Nicki is great about this and I had been meaning to look into some other blogs,websites, facebook pages to connect with other local runners and learn some more about the running gear (until my Garmin watch, I was a t-shirt, shorts and shoes girl), latest running tips, upcoming races and I found a FREE Race Entry into the Baltimore Marathon.. it's titled "Can you do 26.2 or 13.1? " Well, yes I can and I'm sure I'll run faster if it's free.
If free race entries doesn't motivate you..check out this blog post for some mental motivation.
What motivates you to run?
