Anyways-1 week from today I will be registering for the LA Marathon once again. You can read my recap here but overall it was INSANELY hot and humid and I did not meet my time goal but I did train well for it and felt I kept the energy up as I went along. However, I am out for redemption and want to rock this race and try again!It was crazy warm for March so hopefully it will be much better this year!
Why do I bring this up? Well I just got an email about registering!

I will definitely be looking for that discount code-10 bucks is not a lot but it is something. and I love free discounts so I will definitely look at the 25% off coupon on Asics. Maybe buy a new pair of training shoes?
And notice free pairs of shoes if you are the 30th, 300th or 3000th person registered. I am hoping to register first thing on Weds morning so maybe I will be one of them.
One more thing---The 2015 USATF Marathon Championships will be held in Los Angeles on March 15, 2015 in conjunction with the ASICS LA Marathon. A total prize purse of $150,000 will be awarded to Americans vying for national titles in the marathon, in addition to a guaranteed prize purse of $110,000 for the overall field. Yay for running with some crazy fasts runners!
Anyone else planning on running the 30th anniversary of the LA Marathon??
