*I am not affiliated with the Rock 'n' Roll race series other than my connection with Brooks Running, the company who gave me an entry into the race. I simply have a registration code I cannot use and am passing it along.


  1. Fun times!!! I want to run this race because it is in my neighborhood and I don't have to get up extra early and stress about getting to the starting line! ;)
    I also tweeted.

  2. Hooray!! I've always wanted to run this race :)

  3. I follow you on Twitter (@MeganRose_Ellis)

  4. And I tweeted :) (https://twitter.com/#!/MeganRose_Ellis/status/113676047253389313)

  5. And of course, I follow your blog!

  6. Followed the blog, already follow on twitter, tweeted about it, and posted about it on my blog:


    and the final step, "why I want to run"

    Fate. I've run this race the past 4 years. I decided to not register this year and see if I could go without doing it. But like a running addicted junkie, I now want to do it with less than a month to-go. So what do I see on twitter? A give-away! Consider my hopes peaked and shoes ready! Good luck me, good luck all of you. Thanks DOAAR.

  7. Argh. Curse the pretty medal.... I'm a follower.

  8. I want to run for the sparkly lime green and turquoise medal. Duh.

  9. I follow your blog so please enter me into your giveaway.

  10. The race is close by, so I could sleep in my own bed the night before!! And I may know some other people running it, too.

  11. Of course you know I also follow your blog, and twitter....But just in case!! :P

  12. I want to run this race because I am training for Fresno Marathon and making training runs out of half marathons is more fun!

  13. Of course I (1) follow your blog, (2) follow you on twitter, and (3) would LOVE to run this route again having ran it in 2009!!!

    Let's run soon!!
