$100 off Ragnar Relay Napa Valley (CA). Expires: July 10, 2012

A few of my running friends have participated in teams during some of the Ragnar Relays.  A couple of them have done more than 1.  If you run multiple events during a time period, the bonus bling is absolutely gorgeous.

The relays often take place over the course of 2 days, including overnight, usually covering about 200 miles.  I was told it's like a moving party from beginning to the end.  Perhaps, someday, time permitting I would partcipate in one.

The Ragnar Relay Napa Valley is currently offering a $100 discount.  I believe the course goes thru wine country, over the famous Golden Gate Bridge and eventually finishing in Calistoga.

$10 off SF Marathon - 2nd Half Marathon. Expires: 6/29/12

The SF Marathon has a new sponsor for the 2nd Half Marathon, Hill & Co, and are offering $10 off the 2nd Half Marathon.

Those are are familiar with the SF Marathon knows that they offer a choice of 2 half marathons every year.  The 1st Half covers mostly the 1st half of the full SF Marathon course, while the 2nd Half Marathon mostly covers the 2nd half of the full SF Marathon course.

Highlights of each half marathon:
  • 1st Half - The highlight:  Running in the foot bed of the famous Golden Gate Bridge.  The 1st Half is definitely the more scenic of the 2 half marathons here, but the downside is that it has more hills.
  • 2nd Half - The 2nd Half Marathon is flatter than the 1st Half.  If you're a baseball fan, it runs by AT&T Park, home of the SF Giants, baseball team.  It also runs thru the Haight Ashbury and the Mission districts.  A big downside to the 2nd Half is that you'll get to run 5 miles of the half marathon in Golden Gate Park, so you'll only run and see 8 miles thru the rest of the City.

$10 off 2nd Half Marathon
Use Code: DSC10HILLCONF2012
Expires: Friday, June 29th*

*Code expires at 11:59 PST on June 29, 2012.  Cannot be used with any other offer or discount.  Discount only applies to the 2012 2nd Half Marathon.

The Lights are On: New Fridge is In and Back to Running

I had been planning a come back to running several weeks ago but was sidelined by a fridge slowly dying on me.  The fridge wasn't cooling the items and wouldn't stay on long enough to keep things cool.  Eventually, it stopped working.

The Big Challenge:  Clearing a path for the old fridge to leave and a new one put in.

The Lights are On!  Back to Running.

 Watch out!  The Wogging Tortoise is on the come back trail.
