Want To Run The SF Marathon?

Not only am I lucky enough to work and play in one of the greatest cities in the country, but I’m also an ambassador for one of the most rewarding and beautiful marathons in the country: The San Francisco Marathon! If you’ve talked to me in person anytime over the past three months, chances are I’ve talked about the San Francisco Marathon.

SF Half Marathon

Yes, I will fully admit that I have a sweet spot for this race as one year I ran the first half with my mom, and last year I set my half marathon PR on the second half. But there’s more to love! Not only is there a full marathon, but there’s an option of two half marathons and this year, I want to throw a post-race soiree! So you get to come and chill with all of the Bay Area blogging/running peeps (by now you should be at the site ready to register) 😉


But whoooooa there nelly, as an SF Ambassador I get some sweet discount codes and I wanted to giveaway one to a lucky reader! There are two ways to enter:

1. Simply leave a comment on this post by completing this sentence:
“Running is worth the _________.”

2. Dazzle us with your creative skills on Twitter by using @PageSpicer (that’s me!) and @TheSFMarathon in the same tweet and you’ll get another entry.

If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll not only get a $10 off registration code, but also this SF Marathon hoodie:


The winner will be announced next Friday!
Good luck and happy running!


Day 25: 7 miles
