She Runs LA

We all know that I love me some running.

Running has been a major source of fulfillment for me in the past 16 months. It relieves my stress, reminds me to enjoy the world around me and keeps my body fit. The races I’ve completed in the past year are a major source of pride for me. From 5k to half marathon, I was born run 🙂

Of course I am jumping at the opportunity to participate in She Runs LA!

Share the Fun, Share the Passion, Share the Run! Join us for She Runs LA: Powered by Nike +.

 

She Runs LA: Powered by Nike +, kicks of the first ever digital, all women’s race in Los Angeles. On April 27 at 4:00 pm, women all over LA are invited to run to complete a 10K (6.2 miles) within 24 hours and sync their run on nikeplus.com using a Nike+ device (IPhone, ITouch, Nike SportsBand).  This run is like no other; women all over LA can choose their own location and invite their friends to join the run and the fun!

Afterwards, Nike is throwing a full on Hollywood red carpet bash to celebrate all participants’ 6.2 mile run in style, at the NOKIA Theater in downtown LA on April 28 at 7:00 pm.  Nike has pulled out all the stops for a night of show-stopping fun; Red carpet, live musical performances, celebrity and Nike athlete appearances and more.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Students Run LA, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to increase access to the sport of running for underserved youth across LA Unified School District.

Below are all the details:

Register for She Runs LA event at signmeup.com/sherunsla and find out more at www.sherunsla.com. Registration fees are $35 for high school and college ID holders, and $40 for the general public.

Run a 10K and sync on nikeplus.com between 4PM on 4/27 and 4PM on 4/28. Celebration event to follow on 4/28 at 7PM in downtown L.A.

The best part is that part of the proceeds are going to be donated to LAUSD (Los Angeles public schools). This makes me so happy as I have a passion for studying equal public education and organizing around public schools. 🙂

Who else is in?

  1. I’m 90% I’m going to do it….can’t find my Nike+ band right now. I’ve been using my Garmin for a year.

    I think I need to sync my run to be counted right? Damn, gotta go find it.

    Hope to see you soon
