Could you do this? And Giveaway Monday...



I had to share this photo and story, it's about four runners who ran the God's County Marathon in Pennsylvania this weekend, tethered together with a 12 foot rope!!! They beat the previous record for this feat by 12 minutes and might be Guiness Book of World Record holders.  And the very cool thing is, one of the runners is my friend Brad!!! Go BW!!!!

Can you imagine staying the same pace as four others the entire 26.2?? Love it.



There is one day left in my Mega Giveaway, but in the meantime, I'm going to declare today as Giveaway Monday.  I reached out to various vendors to help me hold giveaways to benefit The Children's Tumor Foundation.  Instead of holding another Mega Giveaway, I figured I would do one item per week.  So without further ado, here is the first one:




Do you have a RoadID?  I didn't for a long time, which wasn't the smartest thing. For the most part I run in my neighborhood, and if I go longer distances I'm usually with friends or a group.   But that doesn't matter, even with friends, accidents happen, and the more info you can give when help arrives, the better.

I now have the Sport ID, in a cheery shade of pink.  At first I didn't want to put another thing on my wrist, but it's a lightweight band, with two reflective strips to help keep you visible in the dark.  I wear it on my right wrist, with G-unit on my left, so now I feel balanced  : )





It was easy to order, I just typed in the info I wanted to include on the band which is the year I was born, the town and state I live in, Mike's phone number, my sis in laws phone number, and my blood type (I'm O neg, universal donor, in case you need some).  I also put a little line of inspiration, which comes from Yo Gabba Gabba.......Don't Stop. Don't Give Up.

I've worn it on several bike rides, and on two runs, and it's a comfy addition to my running gear.

Would you like a RoadID of your very own?  Well, here's how to get one, please leave a separate comment for each:

1. Be a Friend of my blog
2. Make a donation of any amount (even $1!) to my fundraising page for Children's Tumor foundation, HERE.
3. extra entries if you have already donated (Thank You Again!!!)
4. tweet, blog or facebook this giveaway
5. like RoadID on twitter here or  facebook here

I'll choose a winner using random.org on Monday June 13th.


Note, I was provided with a RoadID for the purpose of this review, the opinions on the product are my own.

Why do I think running the same pace for 26.2 wouldn't be that hard? delusional probably--ha!

Might be fun...for about 4 miles :). Why can I not see he rope? And I am not in denial I am getting older and need to wear my glasses more. Nope.

I won a roadID about a year ago...one day I must turn that in and order onne...especially since I wander a lot on my own on my bike.

I heard they actually held each other's "you knows" when they all stopped to pee.

TEAMWORK!!!

Your story about the Boilermaker 15k gave me chills. I am so sorry to hear that runner didn't make it.

I realized when I talked to my non-running friends that they really don't have the same intense emotional connection that we have as fellow runners.

Interestingly enough, only my runner friends were concerned about me this weekend. I guess because we all understand and we've all 'been there' so we know how difficult it can be to stay hydrated and not overheat in conditions like that.
