This is a sponsored post by Getaway 5K and VocalPoint. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
You know what? It’s been a hot minute since I’ve registered for a legitimate race and it’s about time I remedied that!
Who wants to join in the fun at the Getaway 5K/10K in Boulder?!
Back in the spring, the crew behind the race shot me an email and amidst the conversation, asked my input regarding race location. At the time, I wasn’t sure if we would end up partnering together, but I thought it was a classy move. They had three or four locations they were considering and I appreciated that they were asking potential participants and locals their thoughts on which environments would be best suited for the run. And, as luck would have it, they opted for my first choice: the Boulder Reservoir!
Initially, I partnered up with Getaway to help them spread the word because I love helping out new races. After all, I can’t run with this whole torn knee thing, yanno? But, the more I thought about it, I realized that was silly. I can walk just fine, right? And a Saturday morning by the Boulder Reservoir in September is arguably one of the more beautiful ways to spend my last Saturday pre-surgery, so why not do it at the race?
One day I will be running at races again. Today is not the day.
And, so it went. Will, Liliana, and I will all be walking the 5K course on September 8. You should come out and join us! Why?! Well, I have a couple reasons:
Premium Race Swag
Seriously guys, I don’t say that lightly! If you sign up for the 10K, you will receive a 1/4 zip pullover long-sleeved tech shirt that is totally legit. Evidence:
I’m hoping you noticed how carefully I placed this shirt so it appeared to wave at you. You’re welcome.
Truthfully, I’m not someone that really cares about race swag and tend to donate the shirts. But I was given one of these shirts to check out and I honestly will wear it, largely thanks to its sweat-wicking abilities. It’s pretty awesome. And if you register for the 5K, you get a similar shirt, just with short sleeves. Still pretty awesome!
This bling is snazzy! They designed them for each specific race so you will receive one particular to your distance. I know a lot of people that buy wall mounts and hang their medals; is that you? If so, I suspect you’re going to like the look of this jewelry hanging up with the rest!
Let’s be real: a driving reason behind race registrations is budget, amiright?! That stuff adds up! Thankfully, the team at Getaway provided me with a discount code that registrants can use for the 5K or 10K. It takes off $12 from the registration cost which means the 10K costs $38 and the 5K costs $28. Not too shabby!
For the discount, use the code in the graphic below:
Added bonus: if you are an AARP member, you receive 50% off automatically!
We Can Hang Out
I realize that is the least cool reason on the list, but come on! Have you seen a cuter face? Likely not. We’ll be there in full, adorable-baby mode!
What are you waiting for? Get registered and then let me know you’ll be there. We can hang out!
