GIVEAWAY: Stillwater Lift Bridge and Log Run Races!

I've always been a huge fan of the Stillwater races.

This Spring I had three of my athletes racing the Stillwater 1/2 marathon. Perhaps you saw Craig's overall win photo?

NBD, a 1:14 win (solo) in marathon-training mode!
Last year I raced the Log Run 10 mile along with two other athletes. That 10 mile is one of my favorite races of all-time, mostly because it's wicked downhill and I am a good downhill runner :). Someday I'm going to break 60:00 in the 10 mile, and I know it'll happen at the Log Run!

With K & R post 2013 Log Run race! It was a fun day :)

Well, readers, it's your lucky day! Thanks to a generous offer from Renewal by Andersen, I'm able to offer a couple of entries to either the Lift Bridge races or the Log Run races! How awesome is that?!?

Nate and I are hoping to be there on July 12th for the 5k (need to re-arrange a prior engagement, hoping SS can be creative?!?) - it would be great to see as many familiar faces there as possible!

Without further ado:

The giveaway!

  1. I've been wanting to smash my current PR in the 10k and I'd love a reason to go to Stillwater. Consider this comment a contender! amy@scenicspaces,com

  2. Nichole, I read and love all your posts. I live in WBL so these races are perfect training races for marathon build up. TNC FAN CLUB!

  3. I would love to do the Stillwater Log Run 5K!

  4. I would love to run the Log Run 10 mile.

  5. I would love to race the Stillwater Log Run 10mi this fall ... it would be a great taper race for the Madison marathon for me! (Excited that I saw this race on your blog because I am unable to do TC 10 this year). #TNC

  6. Count me in for the Lift Bridge 10 miler. Or at least it sounds like a good idea tonight... :)

  7. Well, I guess if Nate is in I probably better show up too.

  8. I would love to do the Log run 10 miler! I have never done a 10 mile race before so it would be a PR for sure!

  9. I can raise a Masters runner, a teenage girl and a pre-teen boy. Only two cards shy of a full house :) for the 5K.

  10. Well if Nate and Craig are doing it, then it's *obviously* a good idea! Have fun Minnesotans :)
