I love running old school; no GPS beeping at me to tell me to run faster – slow down – run more…never getting to just fully enjoy the feel of a run. There is nothing like going out the front door and turning off my head and just letting it all go and just RUN. More times than not I can go out the door and not even think to grab my iPod. But if I become aware that I don’t have music on me, that is all I can think about; so creating the perfect motivating playlist is always fun for me.
For anyone who has chosen to make endurance sports a part of their lifestyle, race entries can get expensive. With Challenge Family entering the Americas and having a full presence in the 2015 season, they are offering a 10% discount on entry for the former Rev3 Races. I thought I would share and pass on while prices are at their lowest! CODE: KSTRI15
When you have raced all over the world and have experienced how different races can be run, according to organization, it is rare to find two companies who share the same vision. About 5 years ago I became exhausted with races in the US due to how they were organized and what they stood for, so I did about 95% of my races overseas until a friend introduced Rev3 to me. I was hooked.
Still loving my international racing, I was lucky enough to have a Euro-friend introduce the Challenge Family to me. My very first impression was, “Wow, they do races so much like Rev3.” Whenever anyone would ask about what races I would suggest, there were always 2 questions I would ask; US or Overseas? My answers were always; Rev3 for US races and Challenge for overseas.
What an exciting season 2015 will be with these 2 series coming together!
