Win an Iron Girl Race Entry!

How would competing in your first triathlon empower and transform your life? Tell us and win an entry to Iron Girl's Portland women's triathlon (sorry guys, even if you look totally cute in a running skort, this is a women's-only offer). Plus, you'll get six weeks of coaching from me, either in person (if you live in the Eugene area) or via email if you live elsewhere. You'll get to join Julie from ChubbyMommyRunningClub.com as she embarks on her journey to her first triathlon.

I've always been a huge believer in the transformative power of triathlon in women's lives. Time and time again, I've stood at the finishing line and watched as women cross the line a different person than when they started the race. This is why Iron Girl's mission of empowering women to a healthy lifestyle through women's-only races is something that I feel very positive about partnering with. This contest will run here, and on Chubby Mommy Running Club's blog.


Details:

1. Write an entry describing yourself, your journey, and why competing in this triathlon would empower and transform your life.

2. Email your entry to:

everymom2ironmom   at   gmail   dot   com 

   (replace at with @ and dot with . )
   Entries are due by May 15

 3. A neutral source (most likely my husband) will print out all of the entries and remove any identifying information.  Julie from Chubby Mommy Running Club, Mandy from Just Breathe Movement Studio and I will read through them all and pick the lucky gal who will win the free race entry.

4. Even if you don't win, you can get $10 off your race entry by using this coupon code: IGBLOG . You can register for the race here.

Wow, I just might have to enter this. Your e-mail today/comment actually got me seriously thinking about a tri for the first time. I've been thinking about it for a long time but something has help me back and a big part of that is the fear or overwhelming feeling of learning something new. But to have coaching come with this?! Sounds exactly what I need. Now I need to get my entry written. I have a feeling that once I learn how to do a tri, I might just really love it and my body might thank me for the benefits of cross training. :) Thank you for your comment today.

OH but I just saw that it is in June. My marathon is June 4th. Could I still pull off my first spring Tri after a marathon that close? Sounds like a cool challenge. :)

Too far for me to travel, but my first ever tri was an Iron Girl Triathlon. It was the most empowering thing I have ever had the chance to participate in.

@Amanda, be careful, you may just get hooked! I know you'd really have a blast.

@JenniferLeah, thanks for the positive words!
