My very first half marathon was See Jane Run in Alameda. It was the perfect day to run and the perfect race for my first distance event. I ran it with my girls Kristin and Tara and we had a blast. The course was fast, it was all women and there was champagne and chocolate at the finish line, what more could we ask for?! This race is where I started to see my potential as a runner and where I really started to consider myself a runner.
Last year I ran See Jane Run for the second time on a much warmer day but with a big group of friends! We had a blast hanging out after the race and definitely enjoyed our fair share of earned champagne, not to mention all the other great food they had at the finish line.
Not only is the race fun, but I also love what they stand for and their manifesto is definitely something I believe in.
Plus I will definitely run for chocolate and champagne any day.
I was really hoping to run this half marathon this summer because I love it and I love what it stands for in my running story, but hadn’t signed up yet. This week my fairy god mother granted my wish when I received an email from See Jane Run offering me an entry AND another one to giveaway.
The race is coming up quick – are you ready?! I hope I am!
