As the summer comes to an end and my first marathon of the fall is about to take place I’m excited to announce that I have been fortunate enough to have been asked by 2 different races to be a member of their ambassador programs for 2017. It never fails to amaze me when I’m given the opportunity to spread the word about great races both near and far. And what are the odds that both of these races are celebrating their 10th anniversary!
The Mississippi Blues Marathon – January 7, 2017
The Blues 2012 was my first marathon. In 2013 I returned for the half marathon and the full marathon again in 2015 & 2016. Next year will be my 4th time running the marathon and this year I get to do it as a member of the Blue Crew. This local marathon always has great on course support and entertainment, not to mention great bling year after year. As a member of the Blue Crew I have a promo code for you to save $10 on your registration! Be sure to use “MBM17JR” when you sign up at MSBluesMarathon.com
26.2 with Donna: The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer
After visiting Jackson, MS in January you can start planning your trip to Jacksonville, FL to run in the 26.2 with Donna Marathon. This event fundraises for the Donna Foundation which raises money to be used exclusively for First Coast women living with breast cancer… who, for whatever reason, can’t make ends meet. Partnered with Catholic Charities, the largest social service agency in the area, they lovingly screen each recipient to ensure we are good stewards of your donations, then The Donna Foundation makes the checks payable to the mortgage company, the utilities carrier, the doctors office etc. Breast Cancer has been a very real obstacle in my family my entire life and I am thrilled for the opportunity to help put an end to the disease.
You can save $5 on your registration with promo code “DSQUAD17JOE”
Registration is open for the 5k, 10k, half, full or virtual race at BreastCancerMarathon.com
