Giveaway! Rock 'n' Roll Country Music Nashville Marathon & 1/2 Marathon! Giveaway Giveaway Giiiiiiveaway!!

Happy Pi Day, my fine fellow bloggers!

I have a code for the Rock 'n' Roll Country Music Nashville Marathon & 1/2 Marathon UP FOR GRABS*! The winner gets a free entry for the distance of their choice (be it the half or the full marathon). Race date is April 30th, 2011, and it's going to be one hell of a party!
I know some people don't like the Rock 'n' Roll events, and other people LOVE them. While I have never done one, I have done events of an extremely similar nature -- and all I have to say is: What's not to love about music at every mile marker (especially in a place with an amazing music scene), pre-race parties and post-race concerts, and endless entertainment for a weekend?!

I recently was given an entry to this Rock 'n' Roll race by my friends at Brooks Running, one of the big sponsors of the Rock 'n' Roll race series this year. I'm super excited to be able to pass along this entry so one lucky reader can have the opportunity to run this race!

The rules are simple: You'll get one entry into this contest for each comment you leave.

SIMPLE, I TELL YA!


1.
Follow my blog, and let me know that you do. (1 entry)
2. Link/Announce this giveaway on your blog, and let me know that you did. (1 entry)
3. Follow me on Twitter (@diaryavgrunner), and let me know that you do. (1 entry)
4. Tweet about this giveaway -- feel free to be creative, just include my blog and my Twitter ID. Something along the lines of "Check out http://diaryofanaveragerunner.blogspot.com for @diaryavgrunner 's Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon giveaway!" will work fine. (1 entry)
5.
For fun, let me know which distance you'd choose to run -- the half or the full -- and why. (1 entry)

I'll randomly pick a winner next Thursday, March 24th. Good luck!

Also, if you haven't entered my ZYM giveaway (man, I can't keep my head on straight with all these giveaways), do so soon! It ends on Wednesday and time is ticking away...


*I am not affiliated with the Rock 'n' Roll race series other than my connection with Brooks Running; I simply have a code I cannot use and am passing it along.

  1. I'd do the half - I'm training for a 6/18 marathon right now...

  2. I'd run the full because my goal is to become a Marathon Maniac this year (also, I'm one of the RNR fans & I think they're a blast)!

  3. I'd run the half because Tennessee is a state I haven't raced in yet :D

  5. I would SO run the full! Why? Purely for the hell of it. I'm already doing two halves in April, and I think it would be fun to see if I could PR the marathon distance being undertrained (as compared to my only other marathon, when I was injured.)

    It would rock so hard if I won this. I'm going to Nashville that weekend anyway with my sister, and I'm planning on going and spectating at the race anyway. Since I'll already be there, I might as well run a marathon!

  13. I have followed you and tweeted about the giveaway. But I just realized that I am running the OC marathon on May 1st, so I couldn't be in Newport and Nashville simultaneously. Though that would be kind of cool! It's an awesome giveaway though! I am jealous of the lucky one who will get it! If I could do it, I would do the half which is my favorite distance, challenging yet not life shattering.

  14. Alyssa,
    I can't run but would love to help promote your contest. Really wish that I were back in the Midwest (or is Tennessee considered "South") for the spring.

    Hope all is well!

  16. Also, if I won, I'd run the full marathon. I'd run it because it'd give me a chance to get to know the city my husband and I are moving to - on April 28th, 2 DAYS BEFORE THE MARATHON!!! :o)

  22. i'd run the full, b/c i definitely didn't do a 20-mile training run on sunday just for the fun of it! seriously, though, i'm looking forward to running this distance in my home town w/ friends & family cheering me on, and will be registering if i don't win.
