See Jane Run is a running store and race organization that really embraces women (and men) of all ages, sizes, fitness levels. They truly celebrate us all getting out there and being active. Although focused on womens’ fitness, men are welcomed into all of their events and no one is made to feel out of place. They have three race locations this year: SF Bay Area in Alameda, CA on June 21; Seattle, WA on July 12; and Pleasanton, CA on September 27. Their events in Alameda and Seattle include a half marathon, 5k and kids race. Their event in Pleasanton includes a Triathlon and Duathlon. I have run their SF Bay Area half marathon twice and had a great time on a flat fast course. The start near Washington Park in Alameda provides a great venue for pre-race activities such as a warm up and dancing-yes dancing. Running close to the water for the majority of the race for both the 5k and half marathon gives runners views of the San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge. It’s a great course for a PR. With the finish line just a few steps from the shore it’s a perfect place to celebrate and provides a beautiful backdrop for post race pictures. Of course, there is chocolate and champagne at the finish, as there is with all See Jane Run races. This race is in June so there is still plenty of time to train. Next on their calendar is there race in Seattle in July. With the start and finish at Gas Works Park, runners get to run along Lake Union. The last event of their 2015 race season is the See Jane Run Duathlon and Triathlon in September. I’m very familiar with the location of this race-Shadow Cliffs Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA and I will be at this race! The triathlon consists of a 400yd swim, 11.1mile bike, 3mile run. Since my swimming is subpar I figured it was better for all involved if I stayed out of the water so I will be doing the Duathlon- 1mile run, 11.1mile bike, 3mile run. Come join me! They will be expanding their races to several new cities in 2016 so stay tuned for that. I’m fortunate to have been selected to be a See Jane Run Ambassador for its 2015 races. Great news for all of you is that I have a discount code to share for 25% off registration to any of their 2015 races! Race entry includes a race shirt, finishers medal, post race champagne (for those 21+) and of course, chocolate. That’s a pretty good deal. The discount code is SJRAMB246.
