MyRaceRagz Winner, A Radio Show, WOW Summit, Kickstarter Funding, and A Great Weekend...

I had a wonderful weekend with my husband and youngest son out at the beach and on our boat. My 2 oldest are gone for the week. For parents of multiple children, only have one child at home for a whole week is a vacation. LOL! I do miss my other kids don't get me wrong, but for one week its kind of nice.

SPARTAN RACE PARTNERS WITH RUNNER’S WORLD…World’s most influential running media brand teams with global leader in obstacle racing
EMMAUS, PA (June 30, 2014) -- Runner’s World, the largest and most influential media brand in the running space, has signed a partnership with Spartan Race™, the global leader in obstacle racing since 2005, that includes custom digital content, racer-focused benefits, training plans and event activations.
The collaboration between these two premier fitness brands kicked off in the July issue of Runner’s World magazine, which reaches over three million people monthly in print. Highlights of Runner’s World’s involvement in Spartan Race events include: Customized Spartan Race training plans designed by Runner’s World experts as well as exclusive stories and videos to be available only on Spartan.com; Runner’s World content on Spartan.com; and a Runner’s World presence at select Spartan Race events.  
“Non-traditional running events such as the Reebok Spartan Race have really taken off in the last five years,” said Runner’s World Publisher Molly O’Keefe. “Our core mission is to welcome and engage all runners, and this new partnership with Spartan Race allows us to continue on that path with obstacle racers. The growth of Spartan Race into a global brand underscores their ability to create and deliver a first-class experience, showcasing the social and physical benefits of running and ultimately attracting new runners to our sport.”
According to a Running USA Study, in just five years, the number of estimated finishers in non-traditional events has grown from low six figures in 2009 to four million in 2013, a nearly 40-fold increase.
“We’re excited to kick-off the partnership with Runner’s World,” said Colby Connell, Spartan Race’s Vice President of Marketing. “Our goal is to expand the way people view health and fitness. While we provide people with an alternative to more traditional running events, Spartan Race is still a race at the end of the day and our heritage comes out of distance running.
“We believe that Runner’s World’s knowledge of training, nutrition, and race day preparation will greatly help our current race community. We also believe the alliance will help educate those in the traditional road race and trail running communities on how to optimally train for a Spartan Race.
“This partnership is yet another key factor in growing the emerging sport of obstacle racing along the proper channels and helping millions of people off their couch and out the door, living fitter lives.”
I was super excited to hear about this partnership.
WOW, I had lots of info for you guys today, LOL! I am hoping to get some swimming in today finally. My foot is feeling better so I am going to be slowly getting back to my Ironman Augusta training. Wish me luck!
I am leaving you today with a really cool picture I took while out on my fishing trip yesterday.
