Every girl has an iron core

Since it's Valentine's Day, I want you to show some love ... to you.


Join me, along with many other empowered and awesome women (and many Tampa Bay bloggers), at the Iron Girl Clearwater Half Marathon and 5K on April 14. Let's run this and rock this together!

It doesn't matter if you run super fast or at turtle speed. Iron Girl empowers, encourages and supports women of all athletic abilities.

I've never run Iron Girl, but I did run a race with a similar course. I know I, along with many others, was scared of the bridges.

But, do not be afraid. These bridges are big; they are difficult to run up. But, you'll feel incredible when you get to the top. You'll feel empowered. You'll realize you're stronger than you realized. You'll feel like an Iron Girl.

And you'll have an incredible view.

You know you want to come to an all-woman running party. You know you want to start your journey today to become an Iron Girl.

Since it's Valentine's Day, I want to show some love to you, too. How about starting your journey knowing you have a free half marathon race entry? Pretty rockin', right? Enter, win and run with me! (Well, you don't have to run with me ... we'll just be at the same race (if that's the way you'd prefer it)).

  1. Awesome giveaway, what a great Valentine's Day gift to your reader's! I would definitely enter if I wasn't planning on moving at the end of March. I'll look for an Iron Girl race up in Mass for the spring though, sounds like an awesome, encouraging kind of run!

  2. This is awesome! I shared it on my facebook page. I just gave one away today, and maybe the others will check it out! :) See you there!

    1. Yay! Good timing on our part. :c) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Seriously would love to win this (btw was sent over by Mindy's Fitness Journey) have a friend running her very first half for this race and she is having a ROUGH time with training...would love to be able to be there for her!!!!! Plus I also want a free race entry! Sounds like a blast!!!!!!! ;)

    1. I love your reason for wanting to win!

    2. Yay! Thank you Jina! She just posted again today that training is kicking her butt and she is worried she may have to walk the entire thing. I told her there is no shame in walking a race....people walk even ultras. I mean if people can racewalk Badwater than there should be no shame in her game to walk this half, but she feels dejected since she really wants to run (she has a hip injury). I've sent her over some tips on stretching and I think she will be able to run more than she thinks she can, but man....first races give everyone jitters. I swore I had a stress fracture the week before my first half. That said I definitely want to stay in touch with you! LOVE Your page!

  4. Great gift! I'll be there running the half with you. ;-)

  5. I've only done two 5ks with obstacles, I want to try a half marathon just to prove to myself I can go further!

  6. WHAAAAAAAAAT!?!?!? I need to keep up on my reader!! This is AMAZING. I mean, AMAAAAAAZING. I will be in the Florida that week anyway! My dude and I were planning to go to Miami, but I will totally run this and go to Clearwater instead! Can you just ditch the whole rafflecopter thing and just pick me?? My fingers are so crossed my hands might break!


Comments rock!
