Jost Running Virtual Race Giveaway

1 Jan

I thought I would go ahead and do ANOTHER New Year’s running giveaway. Two is always better than one right?

This giveaway is for a Jost Running Virtual Race entry!

Look at that spiffy medal! You could use this virtual race as a training run (maybe for a full) or motivation to get you through a race you are already registered for in January. Either way, it would be a fun medal to add to your collection.

One lucky reader will win an entry for the Jost Running January Half/Full marathon. Your prize will include a fancy medal, a running bib, and your results posted on their website.

Jost Running suggests that you run the 1/2 Marathon between January 12th and 18th, and the full between January 26th and February 1st. But as long as you run your distance in the month of January it will count and you will receive your medal!

For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post with one of your running goals for 2014. My main goal is to complete 5 half marathons in 2014. I am already registered for 3, so I think it is a pretty reasonable goal.

This contest is open until 11:59 pm on January 5th, so make sure to leave your comment before then!

    Oh! I really want to do a Jost run. Excellent giveaway!

    This year my goal is to PR at my 22nd Bolder Boulder and run a half or two.

      Virtual races are pretty neato! Bolder Boulder? Whats that?

      • Christina January 3, 2014 at 10:39 am #

        Bolder Boulder is the BEST 10K ever (to put it mildly). It’s been voted as Runner’s World All-Time Best 10K. It’s on Memorial Day in Boulder, Colorado, each year and has almost 50,000 runners, but it’s so well run you would never guess it has that many people. It concludes with a huge Memorial Day celebration that includes honoring veteran.

    I already have this beautiful medal so please keep me out of the running. But I wanted to share my goal to run 1,000 miles in 2014. Also to pull as many new runners into the sport as possible.

    • Meghan January 3, 2014 at 6:46 pm #

      Those are two GREAT goals for 2014 Pam :)

    My goal is run a marathon before the year is done! I did a half last year and it was amazing!

    • Meghan January 3, 2014 at 6:47 pm #

      Good luck Jen! 13.1 is PLENTY of miles for me, but I am so impressed by folks that take on 26.2!

    Well… as for goals – I was thinking this year I might try and slow down on the number of races I do over the course of the year (last year 17 half marathons and a bunch of smaller races). But… I believe goals, like new year’s resolutions are only a guideline. I am doing back to back 10K this weekend (Saturday and Sunday) Tinkerbell 10K and Half Marathon MLK weekend, and Vancouver Lake, WA Half the following Sunday! whoo hoo!!!

    • Meghan January 3, 2014 at 7:42 pm #

      Slowing down huh Sue? :) Its okay… starting Jan 25th I have 5 races in 11 weeks, 3 of which are half marathons.

  6. rosie121 January 3, 2014 at 7:41 pm #

    My goal is to successfully finish 8 marathons and 16 halfs on my 2014 wish list. Fast, slow, running, jogging, crawling…doesnt matter. Just want to keep doing what I love the most and staying healthy because of it :)

    • Meghan January 3, 2014 at 7:43 pm #

      Holy cow! I think my feet would fall off! Good luck Rosie :)

  7. LaRee January 3, 2014 at 10:16 pm #

    I love the medal! I ran a half on New Years day to start my goal of one half a month for the year!

    • Meghan January 3, 2014 at 10:28 pm #

      What a great goal! I am not running a 1/2 this month, but I do have one in February, March and April.

  8. Jan January 3, 2014 at 11:12 pm #

    My goal is to complete not just one, but two half marathons. My longest mileage completed is 9 miles 3 years ago. I suffered some serious setbacks this past year, including breast cancer, and I am ready to take on 2014 to the nth degree! Bring it on!

  9. Nicole January 4, 2014 at 12:09 am #

    My goal is to complete my first half – it is coming up, but I still have a ways to go in training

    • Meghan January 4, 2014 at 9:54 am #

      I remember my first 1/2 Nicole. It was hard, but I’m sure you’l be able to do it and have a great time :)

  10. Kaylynn Gresham January 4, 2014 at 12:51 am #

    Happy New Year.. My 2014 goal is complete my marathon in May at a 11:30 over all per mile pace and my September marathon at an overall 11 min mile pace

    • Meghan January 4, 2014 at 9:54 am #

      Great goals Kaylynn!

  11. Angie Schleyer January 4, 2014 at 1:11 am #

    My goal is to complete 4 half marathons and 1 full marathon in 2014

    • Meghan January 4, 2014 at 9:55 am #

      That sounds like a great goal Angie!

  12. Thonisha Barnes January 4, 2014 at 8:33 am #

    My goal is to increase my running distances by doing 5Ks every month, a 10k by mid year & ending with a 15k or half marathon.

    • Meghan January 4, 2014 at 9:55 am #

      That sounds great Thonisha!

    What a great give away!
    My first running goal this year is to run (without stopping) my first 5k in February. (I’ve only walked them before) I’m 40 pounds down in my weight loss journey and have been enjoying my training so far!
    Thank you!

    • Meghan January 5, 2014 at 6:25 pm #

      That is a GREAT goal! Congrats on the weight loss.

    My 2014 goals:
    1. Run at least a 10k to half monthly
    2. Clock 1500 miles running and walking for the year. Last year’s total was 1089!

    • Meghan January 5, 2014 at 6:25 pm #

      Great goals Lashaun!

  15. laura Gay January 5, 2014 at 11:43 am #

    • Meghan January 5, 2014 at 6:25 pm #

      That sounds like fun… as long as its not in the winter time ;)

  16. Carol January 5, 2014 at 5:02 pm #

    My goal is to run my first half marathon in 2014.
