She Runs LA

I am so excited about sharing this post with you today!  And excitement is just what I need in my life right now!

I just signed up for a 10K!

She Runs LA: Powered by Nike+ will have the first ever digital, all women's race on April 27th. Women are invited to run a 10k within 24 hours and sync their run to using a Nike+ device.

There is no specific location so you can run by yourself or with friends anywhere you want. I will most likely be running with my jogger and Audrey!

Afterwards, Nike is throwing a party at the Nokia theatre in downtown LA to celebrate all the participants. There will be a red carpet, live musical performances and celebrity and Nike athlete appearances.

And the best part... 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.


Register for She Runs LA at  Registration fees are $35 for high school and college ID holders and $40 for the general public.

Run a 10k (6.2miles) and sync on between 4pm on 4/27 and 4pm on 4/28.  The celebration event follows on 4/28 at 7pm in downtown LA.

A Giveaway!

If I were in L.A., I'd be all over this...if I were in shape for a 10K, that is. ;)

I'm curious: How long does a 10K usually take you? Will Audrey typically sit still in the jogging stroller for the whole thing?

Hi Stephanie!

I ran this with Audrey. During her nap time She slept through the whole thing. I finished it in 1 hour and 25 minutes. It was super hot, and pushing the stroller I think led to my slower pace. I was aiming for 1 hour and 10.

I try to run during Audrey's nap time. I pack snacks and water and stuff them in the stroller pockets to her side, this usually keeps her busy for the first 20-30 minutes, and if I am lucky she usually falls asleep after her snack.

She will sleep through most of the run... of coarse there are days when she doesn't, I can usually get her to sit through the run by promising her something fun (like a trip to the park) at the end.

Sometimes I have to cut my run shorter, or let her stretch by getting her out and letting her run along side me (she is pretty good and can usually run a whole mile!), she then is exhausted and asks for the stroller!

Sometimes I take a break in the middle, we run to a park that is located about half way through my 6 mile run. This way she gets to play in between and then usually takes a nap on the way back.

This was probably way too much info...but hope it helps!!! ( :
