What’s a 13er?
The 13er. You may be wondering what’s a thirteener? A thirteener is a half marathon, 13.1 miles. A half marathon is half of the marathon distance of 26.2, but if you have ever run one you know that a half marathon should not be treated as or thought of as only half of something. No matter what distance you are running, walking, skipping, dancing or maybe even prancercising (haha!), you are getting up and getting out there and getting your body moving and that is what’s important. As a Skirt Sports ambassador I have come to love the name thirteener as opposed to a half marathon. As Nicole DeBoom founder of Skirt Sports says, “It’s not half of anything!”
Running a thirteener is an incredible accomplishment. It takes time, sweat, dedication, persistance, hard work, laughter and maybe even some tears to run 13.1 miles. When you have finished you will feel proud and happy because you jumped in and ran because more than anything you love to run and to move!
On June, 14 in Louisville Colorado, Skirt Sports will be hosting the Skirt Sports Thirteener which also includes 10K and 5K options. If you are like me and your summer schedule is jam packed full and you very sadly cannot make it to Colorado for the actual race then you can jump in for some fun anyways by participating in the Virtual Skirt Sports 13er. If you are ready to register then be sure to use my discount code at checkout: ORM25AMB and you can enter on the Skirt Sports website HERE. Pricing for entry varies based upon which package and distance you choose but the cool thing is that all finishers will receive a Skirt Sports Gift Certificate. If you choose to race the 13er you will get this super comfy 13er Finishers Tee Skirt!
