RunCLE- best week ever!

This is it!

The Crème de le crème of weeks in blogging!  Just as I finished my workout today I saw that the Cleveland Ambassador of the week was posted and it’s me! Honestly, this is year 2 as an ambassador for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and I still pinch myself! I am truly honored to be in the presence of some of the most dedicated and driven athletes I have ever met. And to be completely honest, at first I thought when I met these people that I wouldn’t fit in because I’m just a mom that runs for fun.  I don’t always stick to a strict schedule of training but boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong!  These people are not only bomb ass runners, but unwaveringly supportive, caring, and kind. I am so lucky to be able to just be ME and call these people my friends! 


So, if you are lacking any kind of motivation, please check out their blogs, IG, and FB pages and you will not be sorry. 

The other super fun thing about this week is that I officially have a new blog name!

Since I have really been blogging more about running than anything else the last few years, I just thought it was kind of fun to make it different and re-invent the old blog a little bit. So, Running with Jazzhands it is! I hope you like it as much as I do!

Last week was a good one training wise and I had little to no knee pain so I’m taking that as a HUGE win! Also, I’m pretty excited to start getting more miles in. I looked at my Nike app and it looks like I’m right on track to where I was last year. 

Monday- 3 miles on the track at lunch

Tuesday- 1 quick mile and 10 minutes on the rowing machine (that left a nice little blister on one hand, but it was a good arm workout) and some core

Wednesday- 3 miles on the track at lunch 

Friday- 4.5 miles after work on the track

Sunday- 4.5 miles outside in the beautiful weather!

So, now the part you are all excited about! This week I’m so excited to give away one entry to any distance of your choice: 5K, 8K, 10K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon, just not the challenge series. If you are already registered I can’t give you your money back, but I can meet you at the start line for a high five and to throw some glitter at you! Please share with our friends that you’d like to peer pressure into running with you! Because running with a buddy makes it even more fun!

To enter to win:

1.       Comment below on why you like running in Cleveland! (mandatory)

2.       For a bonus entry (or 2), share my IG or FB post about this blog post and tag me in it. I’m mbix66 on IG and Running with Jazzhands on FB

Please enter by noon on Monday February 8th when I will post this week’s recap and will announce a winner!

  7. I love running in Cleveland because of the energy. The camaraderie is amazing and I can feel it in my bones. I turn off my music the first and last mile of every half marathon; the cheering becomes my music. Cleveland, hands-down, has the best "cheer music" and energy out there! I can't wait to experience it again! I want to run the half :)
