On March 17th I registered for the San Jose Half during a promotion that Competitor was running for St. Patty’s. On April 12th, I got the following e-mail:
You have been randomly selected as a winner of Dodge Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon’s “Double Your Luck” promotion! As a winner, you receive one (1) complimentary entry to any of the following open 2011/2012 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series race, including: (and they listed them)
… and I chose the Chicago Half Marathon!
I had recently found out that one of my besties was getting hitched in Chicago the week after this event and I wanted to register for it! However, the early bird registration had passed and it was going to cost $110 (as opposed to $85). So yeah, I was super excited to get in for FREE!!!! Thank you, Competitor!
I’m about 20 days away from my Second of 7 and have already registered for the following events:
Chicago Half Marathon
San Jose Half Marathon
Las Vegas Half Marathon
Other exciting news is that they have added a Palm Springs half marathon into the 2011 tour schedule which means I can complete my 7 in 2011 without having to do another airplane-travel-required event!
