Rock Your Socks Half Marathon and 10K Entries ...

So, there is just one week until the First Annual Rock Your Socks Half Marathon and 10K. And I wanted to take this opportunity to review the details of the race and make a final call for participants. If haven't signed up yet and want to run, email me with your name, blog address and race distance by Monday, May 17th.

Here's the lowdown:

WHEN: Friday, May 21, Saturday May 22, or Sunday, May 23

DISTANCE: 10K or Half Marathon

COST: FREE - But I will take donations to the sock collection ...

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: On the weekend of May 21-23, pick your course, ROCK YOUR SOCKS and run your race! When you are done email me the pictures, a link to your race report and your finish time.

WHAT WILL YOU GET?: Every participant will be linked on the Rock Your Socks Half Marathon and 10K Recap. The Fastest 10k, Fastest Half Marathon and one randomly selected winner will each win one tube of Nuun and two Gu.

And one racer will be awarded with "Best Use of Socks" (at my discretion) and will win a Bondi Band (pictured here):

ok, ok I'm in! Let's see I'll be running like 18 miles...that weekend so I guess I'll just join the 1/2'ers group even though it won't be speedy!

Looking forward to it!
