Race Discount for YOU, Check My Flow, & It’s (hopefully) Race Day!

It’s been a good week of runs for me, I think even Kanye would agree…

Josh is excellent at photoshop.

A TNSR run is always fun.

Rhyme 1.

Trying a new running form.

Tho the day before’s run on the track was whack.

Rhyme 2.

The clouds and the noises they made were scary, but I got the run dun before they cried on me.

But the day before that was pretty phat.


A baby run and a papa run.

OK, that’s enough freestylin. I gotta focus on this weekend – RACE TIME! Well, I hope. My last two races have been cancelled due to massive Texas storms. And as I write this it is storming again. Hopefully it will clear up before the race.

I was lucky enough to get a free entry to this race – Rock the Block 10k. That said, I’m dreading it a little. I ran this race last year and wasn’t a fan of the course.

Last year’s poster. The route hasn’t changed. Who likes an out and back – I mean, honestly?

But at least I know what to expect since I’m familiar with the route.

And hopefully the rain clouds will help keep it kewl this year – last year it was friggin hawt!!!! But I still ran a PR (with a horrible positive split) of 46:00.

Just a bit sweaty at the end.

I’m going for a negative split and another PR, so come back in a couple days for the recap!!!

Other than that, the fine folks at Spartan Race have sent me a discount code to share with you:

Email-Module-580x580_Memorial-DayThey do these obstacle races all over the USA (and I think internationally too), and they have different distances you can choose from…

Email-Header_Memorial-DayBut hurry up and use the code MEMORIAL because I believe it expires pretty soon!

Twitter-Post_880x440_Memorial-DaySo there ya go, kiddo. A week that was pretty on fleek. And now I best be goin cause my rhyme is done flowin.

How bout you? Running this holiday (US) weekend? Ever run a Spartan Race…or going to? Do you have any race predictions?

  1. Don’t quit your day job, dude! lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Glad you were able to get some runs in between the storms. We’ve been super dry here this spring.

  2. I’d love to run a Spartan, but the close ones always seem to be weekends when I’m busy.

    • Ahh bummer. Well at least they seem to be getting more and more popular, so hopefully you’ll have more opportunities!

  3. I’d like to do a race in Dallas this summer. Any suggestions for a 10k?

    • Hmmmm, I usually don’t do too many races in summer due to the heat. I have run the Wounded Warrior – but it was very hot. There’s also the Hottest Half & 10k. On 4th of July there’s the Liberty 5k/10k in The Colony that I sometimes run. Let me know what you decide on!

      • I may do that Liberty by the Lake in The Colony. That might work for me. I will keep you updated. Thanks for the info. I appreciate it.

      • Very cool! I’ve run the 5k a few times – it mainly goes through the neighborhood. I believe the 10k actually runs along a crushed granite trail along the lake.

      • That is what I read….that the 10k goes around the lake. It is a strong possibililty that I will run that. I’ll keep you updated.

      • Cool! I haven’t been over there recently, I hope it’s not flooded!!!

  4. Freaky clouds!! I’m running an out and back race this weekend too, good luck with yours!!

  5. Good luck this weekend!!! No races for me this weekend, just a long run! Enjoy!

  6. Kindeo

    Have a great race! I hate out and back courses too.

    • Thank you!!! Flooding actually caused them to change the course – to a two lap one. Be careful what you wish for…

  7. Your storms look very scary! I’ve never done a Spartan. I’m too scared of getting hurt – they look hard. Congrats on the race (I’m behind on WordPress but not Instagram) ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • They are scary – house shaking thunder, trees downed, it’s wild! Ha, I’m scared of getting hurt too – but if you want to skip an obstacle you can, but have to do 30 burpees. Hahaha, I’m also behind on blogging, but pretty up to date with IG.

  8. Have a great race!!! Hope the weather holds for you!!

  9. I didn’t run at all this weekend, but I’m totally ok with that. I enjoyed my laziness. I hope you got to race after all!

    • We did get to race! Although the flooding here caused them to change the course. Tough day! Glad you had a relaxing weekend!!

  11. Lookit you, Busta Bobcat! That Kanye pic made me crack up. You’re right, he’s good at photoshop. I totes forgot I’m running a hilly half this weekend in obscene humidity. Thankfully, it’s not an out and back. Loves me a loop. Stay dry. That’s some crazy storms.
