I don’t know, but I’m excited for everything on the horizon. It feels good to be already registered for five events in the upcoming months. I have never been pre-registered for so many things. I usually procrastinate, making my entry fees more expensive.  This time, I took advantage of early-bird specials, coupon codes etc.

In just over two weeks I am running Hood to Coast with a GREAT team of women.  I am so excited, I can hardly stand it. Preparations are in full force.  Get ready for some fun blog posts afterwards and there are sure to be LOTS of pictures.  Go Nuun Platuun!

Shortly after that, I head off to St. George, Utah.  I have heard nothing but wonderful things about this marathon. I have seen it listed several times as a favorite race among runners who have run a lot of them. Runners run this race over and over again. It is fast and beautiful and I can’t wait.

In November, I am running the Santa Barbara Half Marathon. There are at least five of us going and we’re making it a girls’ weekend. The race is on Saturday, so we’ll stay Saturday night and really enjoy ourselves. My friend Jen is running her first half.  She recently lost 40 pounds, so the half marathon is a great way to celebrate her new body!

In January I am running the inaugural Tinkerbell Half Marathon.  This is a women’s race (although I know at least one man who is running it—woo hoo, Matthew!) I am going to don my fairy wings and have a wonderful time.  My friend, Janet, is coming down and staying with me and it should be a fun weekend.

Finally, I am registered for the inaugural Hollywood Half Marathon in April.  It is a week before my 45th birthday, so I want to live it up in Hollywood.  They advertise limos taking runners from finish line to the expo/celebration as well as a red carpet.

So with all that, my running budget is maxed out! However…that does not preclude me from running a race that is FREE (and only minutes from my house). That leads me to the point of this post. iFitness (one of my favorite products*) is giving away a free entry to the Disneyland Half Marathon next month.  I need your help to win it.  I get entries for every five people who “like” them on Facebook or “follow” them on Twitter.  I need your help and here’s how:

Go to the iFitness Facebook Page and like them.  Tell them that Lisa Roehm-Gensel sent you.

Follow @iFitnessRunning on Twitter and tweet “@momtomarathon sent me to @iFitnessRunning #runDisney #Free entry”

Thank you so much for your help!

Happy Running…

*I will be reviewing one or more of their products in the next several weeks. There may even be something in it for you.  hint, hint..
