It’s no secret I’ve had this on my mind lately.
And by lately, I mean, really, since last fall when my buddy Kim mentioned she’d be running. But, I let 2012 go, since there were so many other things going on – Wine and Dine, WDW Marathon on the horizon…etc – so it kind of took a back seat for a while…until they had to go and announce this whole BIG BANG SERIES nonsense 😉
So, get this: they are unveiling a super amazing new line-up of medals that change each year with different shuttles – and between now and 2017, there are PERK medals for completing three races in five years (Milky Way Challenge), or going all out and completing all five (Intergalactic Challenge) in the series.
SIGN ME UP.
Well, I mean, figuratively. I definitely want to sign up, but I am also trying to be a responsible human and not dictate our entire year by what races are when but I literally cannot stop thinking about this race. And my BRFs (best running friends) on twitter are no help!
Not only do they tweet me the registration link, they send me pictures:
So you might be wondering, what’s so great about this race, other than the promise of fantastic bling? Well, here’s a few of the features highlighted on their website:
- Start your race to the roar of a Space Shuttle countdown and liftoff on the Jumbotron!
- The Expo will be held at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
- “Space” Props along course and at finish line area.
- “Space” Themed Water/Aid Stations all along course
- Volunteers in NASA-like uniforms and hats
- “Space” Photo opportunity with astronauts walking around the race site
- Opportunity to win a “One Day Space Adventure” for up to a family of four!
- All registrants will now receive a Moonpie at our Health & Fitness expo!
On top of these amazing fun things, the finishers receive a finisher’s towel, (perfect for the beach/keeping warm after the race) the course is known to be flat and fast, (another BQ opportunity?!) and well, all those amazing peer pressuring friends above will be there 😉
So yeah…about that Space Race….
