It’s time for another giveaway! Hip, hip, hoo-ray!
The Circle Lake Association puts on the annual Circle the Lake 1/2 Marathon, 10k and 5k every year in September. This year it’s held Sept 24th. It’s perfectly timed as a tune-up for TCM!
It’s a challenging, hilly course. They definitely live up to their catchy tag line “One Hill of a Race”, so you’ve been warned!
Some fun things:
They give out a poly/cotton blend T-shirt, which I’m a big fan of. I would much rather have a soft T-shirt to lounge in than a cheap tech-T with a weird cut/fit. Aren’t you with me?
A fun medal, although I’m personally not a huge fan of getting medals at races. I’d rather they save the cost or give out something different – I actually talked to the race director last year about a couple of ideas for future years! But – don’t get me wrong – it’s a great medal!
Dogs are welcome to run as well (with their owners, preferably). AWESOME.
Last year Sara, a TNC athlete, notched the overall women’s win and Marco took second for men! Maybe we can get a few more TNCers/NicholeRunning readers there this year??

Fun giveaways: this year they are working on a gym membership, FREE GLIDER RIDE, and gift certificates from businesses. You also get a free soda or Bloody Mary after the race. Yummm, diet coke after a hard run :).
Please consider making the trip to Faribault on September 24th this year for the race! It’s bound to be a great time!! Take a look at their website for more info on their course, timing, and other details.
To enter, comment below with one or two ideas for training, coaching, racing, strength training, running while pregnant, or other blog topics you would like to see. One idea gets you one entry into the drawing, two ideas for two entries, and three ideas for three entries!!
Creative, informative, and useful topics will grant you an entry – as much as I’d like to dedicate my corner of the internet to writing about “Mountain Goats”, “Best Vacuums on the Market Right Now”, or “Should I date a bald man”, well… 🙂
Comment away! A winner will be chosen this Sunday evening (8/14/16).
