Sea to Shining Sea (WW # 104)



We appreciate your support of the Weekly Wrap.  Our Guest Host Series continues strong.  Thanks to all of you for making it a success.  This week's guest host is the lovely and inspirational Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner.  Be sure to visit Deborah and leave a comment.  Please do not just drop a post and run.  The sole purpose of this linkup is to support active women.  Our next guest hosts will be  Heather @ 3 Black Cat Co. on August 6th and Michelle @ Running With Attitude on August 13th.

****************************************************


First of all, Tricia and I are beyond excited to be celebrating our 2nd anniversary.  Can you believe it?  The Weekly Wrap is turning two and we plan to party throughout the month of August.  Make sure you come back, interact with other linkers, link up yourself, and enter to win some very cool items.   The more you interact and link, the better your chances are to win.

Happy Anniversary, Tricia!


Secondly, I'm having a visitor next week so please check in and see who came to visit and what shenanigans we got ourselves into!

Thirdly, my sister is currently visiting and I'm spending the weekend having a little extra fun.  Instead of my usual weekly recap, which is honestly not very interesting right now, I'm dedicating this post in support of Kristy from Runaway Bridal Planner

Some of you may know Kristy, especially from her Grow Your Blog or Giveaway hops.  I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Utah Valley Half Marathon.  She's run an impressive number of marathons in her quest to run in all 50 states.  She recently completed the Grand Canyon Rim To Rim To Rim challenge.  To say she is a busy gal is an understatement!  On top of all this, Kristy returned to college to obtain her Recreational Management degree.   Very appropriately, she chose to create a virtual race for her thesis project.  


****************************************************

Have you entered a Virtual Race before? 

Registrations for the Sea to Shining Sea Virtual Races are open and if you register today, you can use discount code FUNRUN and save 15% off the registration price. HINT: If you are willing to share you signed up on Facebook during registration you can save an additional 10% on top of that.



Do you know what a Virtual Race is?

Runners, walkers or even hikers sign up for any distance they want to work towards as part of a goal. The best part of virtual races you pick your own course and distance and you get to go at it at ANY pace you prefer. Maybe you shoot for a PR or a slow enjoyable pace you enjoy, it's completely up to you! For your efforts and completion and just like a regular road race, you will be provided with a race t-shirt and beautiful unique finishers medallion to show off your accomplishment to your family and friends.

Love great race bling?

Sea to shining Sea has a beautiful unique finishers medallion you can earn here is a glimpse of the design. (Note: the actual medal will be a nice quality heavier nickel metal about 3 inches wide with a navy blue splash of color.)



With Virtual Races YOUR possibilities are endless.


Why enter this virtual race?

* Use it as a training run for a fall race you are gearing towards.

* To motivate you to stay active or to become active.

* Compete against yourself.

* Compete in your own way with no restrictions, run during the time of day and day of the week that works best for your schedule.

* It supports American small businesses, medal creation, and t-shirt screen printing all done by American based companies.  In addition, the event project itself is for a college thesis project so you'll be helping a runner get her Recreational Management degree!

* To earn a new medallion to add to your race accomplishment displays.





Want more competition?

There are group discounts upon registration. Get your family, friends, or your co-workers together for a fun challenging way to stay active and earn a fun medallion award.

Want to give it a try? You can REGISTER HERE today before registration prices increase.

  12. Happy anniversary! I haven't done a virtual race in a year or more. I did a few when I started running and know folks who use them as a motivator to finish long runs. I feel like that's a good idea - especially in the winter.

  31. Happy WW anniversary to you and Tricia! You both are so wonderful :) A virtual race does sound kind of fun these days - I like that they can be run on the treadmill or outside. Especially if the day starts out super hot! Air conditioning? Yes, please!

  35. 2 years! How exciting!
    I have not done a virtual race before - I typically like to pick my races because of an exciting course or running with friends, which I guess I could do both of those with a virtual race as well!
