Note: I did receive a complimentary entry into the Represent Running Run the Bay Challenge because I am an ambassador for Represent Running. All opinions are my own. Ain't nobody got time for lyin'!
Do you ever sit home and pine over your friends' glamorous photos and bling from races around the country?
Working through some serious #FOMO?
I know it happens to me on almost a daily basis.
One of the race series I really missed out on last year because well simply put I live on the wrong coast was the Represent Running Run the Bay Challenge!
I lived in San Francisco for a year in 2007 and really miss the Bay Area.
Check out the 2015 bling posted by my friend Pavement Runner:
2015 #RunTheBay Challenge. Comprised of 3 races around the Bay Area (408, 415, 510). I ran 2 of the 3 as a remote runner and love that each represents the look/feel of the local area. The 4th medal is for completing all 3. 2016 registration opened 11/1, where you can register for distances ALL 3 races. You can choose to race or do as a remote/virtual option (can change later). Follow @representrunning and reg link is in their bio. I'll be doing all 3 again in 2016 #408k #415k #letsgo510 #runlocal #werunsocial
I mean how could I not be drooling over that bling! Simply EPIC.
As you can see in Pavey's Instagram note, there is an option to be a "remote runner." #MindBlown
I am a big advocate for virtual races. Why miss out on some sweet bling and a good cause just because you can't travel to the location of the event??
So for 2016, I AM ALL IN! That's right friends. I am ready to Run The Bay... from the Boston area. :)
Let's get to the details...
