Win a race entry to the 13.1 Half Marathon!

Last year I ran the Allstate Life Insurance Los Angeles 13.1 Marathon® and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately this year I am not in shape to run it, BUT I was contacted about hosting a giveaway for an entry on my blog to one lucky ready. The race IS this weekend, so if you’re looking for a fun run in LA, this is the place to be!


I also previously worked closely with Give Your Sole at my past job, and really love what the stand for and how they give back to the community. They will be hosting a shoe donation campaign to collect moderately used athletic shoes at Allstate Life Insurance 13.1 Marathon Series race this weekend! All shoes collected in LA will be donated to the Union Rescue Mission, a local organization serving LA’s homeless population. The Union Rescue Mission is one of the largest rescue missions of its kind in the United States, and the oldest in Los Angeles.

You can bring  your shoes to packet pick up on Friday and Saturday to donate as well. After the race they will be collecting shoes and if you donate your shoes you run in, you’ll receive a free pair of flip flops to wear home!

I totally wish I was in shape and was in town to do this race this weekend, but I know if I pushed myself I’d end up with another IT band injury, which is not what I want to start the year off with!

All you have to do to be entered to win the giveaway entry is leave a comment letting me know you want to run the race. It’s so last minute so I just hope someone will want to participate! They have nice big medals too :)

    I’d love to run this race. I just ran the New Years race and after a less than PR performance I’m left with sore legs and an more bruised ego. A chance to redeem myself would hasten the recovery.

    Would love to run this since it’s in my backyard and have more than enough shoes to find a pair (or two) to donate!

    I love running races. But to be frank with you, they are getting expensive. It would be great to have a chance to run one more race. Well and I’ve been donating my shoes every chance I got.
