i want to have running bling like flavor flav


I just found out I was selected to support and promote the Mississippi Blues Marathon as part of the #BlueCrew. Whoo-hoo I’m so excited!

I wanted to support and promote the 2016 Mississippi Blues Marathon because:

  1. I’m planning to run it with my friend Stephanie; we heard (repeatedly) while we were running another half marathon (weird, I know), that we should have run the Mississippi Blues Marathon, because it was the premier running event in Mississippi.
  2. I loved running in Mississippi. It was very challenging for this Florida girl, because of all the hills and hills and hills. (I just hated the May humidity and heat. This Florida girl runs in a/c.)
  3. It supports a good cause: the local blues musician’s benevolent fund.
  4. There is live music on-course. Always a plus because I hate running with earbuds.
  5. Chocolate milk at the finish line.
  6. And last but not least, I heard the medal is approx. 2lbs of bling fabulousness. (And it was ranked in the top 25 Finisher’s Medals by Marathon & Beyond Magazine several years in a row.)

The Mississippi Blues Marathon takes place on January 9th, in Jackson, Mississippi. You can choose the full 26.2mi, the half 13.1mi, the relay, the Quarter Note 10.5k, or the Back2Back which includes the First Light marathon in Mobile Alabama the next day. For more information click here.  And if you decide to register and join the fun, here is a discount code for $10 off your entry fee: KKMBM16

I hope to see you at the start line in 262 days, 6 hours, and fifty minutes; which should give me enough time to work in some hill training.
