Phoenix Marathon Registration GIVEAWAY

I know, I know, I can't won't stop talking about the Phoenix Marathon! #SorryNotSorry It is going to be the PARTY of 2015!

If you've been living under a rock or don't follow my social media [Twitter: @CarleeMcDot, Instargram: @CarleeMcDot, Pinterest: @CarleeMcDot, Google+: @Carlee Padot McClurg] then maybe you didn't know... BUT I AM CURRENTLY TRAINING FOR THE 2015 PHOENIX MARATHON! Sure, sure, I may have 12ish races between now and then, but the big daddy of them all is the Phoenix Marathon.

And not only am I running it, but a TON of other AMAZING runners will also be there (and don't you worry your pretty little head, we will DEFINITELY make sure to have some sort of Meet-Up/ Hang Out while we are there). Just some of the folks that will be there (since more keep joining the party DAILY) are: RunEMZ, The Athletarian, Pavement Runner, PointOneMiles, StuftMama, RunningWithSD, ShootsKdenAloha, Sharp EnduranceAndreaBarber, Gymerella, and MANY, MANY MORE!

PointOneMiles posted this fun photo on Instagram a few days ago
with some of the folks running the race!

I mean, HAVE YOU SEEN THE ELEVATION CHART?! Of course I am going to try and go #Sub4OrBust at this race! If it is possible anywhere, it is going to be possible at the Phoenix Marathon!

Um... I'm not sure if you've seen this, but that means 7,000+ folks BQ at this race!

Not sure if you remember my little "Fan Girl" post, but RunEMZ got me THE HOOK UP! She spread the word about me (I don't know what lucky stars were lining up magically to make this happen) and the folks from the Phoenix Marathon have offered up a FREE ENTRY TO THE MARATHON!! That's right! You heard it here first (anyone else think of the old school MTV VJ's saying that?!)... I've got a FREE RACE ENTRY TO THE 2015 PHOENIX MARATHON! And it could be YOURS!

And don't worry, most of us just started our marathon training schedule for Phoenix, so you can totally jump in and get ready to rock this race! (I know, I know, I technically started back in September, but that is because I have that little thing called the Dopey Challenge at the beginning of January I am also training for.)

I've only done one full (Surf City), so my goal is to PR. But based on that course, I'd aim for a 4:20, which would be a 38-minute PR. :)

Debbie said...

This could be my first full ever! :D

Debbie said...

No idea what my time would be lol

Tina said...

Looking forward to the race!

Amy Reed said...

I would try for sub 4:30!

Steffany Rubel said...

I'm trying for a sub-4 a few weeks before at Rock N Roll NOLA. If I didn't hit it, I would love to try a sub-4 with you my friend!!

Jacette Valenzuela said...

Oh man! 3:59:51 would rock my world! :) but a 4:20 would be way satisfactory.

Kara said...

3:30, baby! I was so close at Chicago and have plenty of time to drop!

Rani Streff said...

ahhh sub-4 is my 2015 goal! clearly i need to come run alongside you for speedy motivation ;)

Heather cox said...

I've never done a full marathon but 10 halfs. Looks like a great full for a first.

elizabeth said...

I would love to win this since I have several friends running it. This would be a fantastic place to visit since here in montana it was -17 degrees this am!!!

elizabeth said...

Old school mtv vj--Kurt loder? Julie brown?

brandon said...

I'd shoot for 3:50 which would be a PR and reachable goal.

Kathy Walker said...

I would totally make the trip for this race!! I hope to win =)

Lindsey said...

I live in Phoenix and would love to run my first full marathon!

Boston Bound Brunette said...

Anything better than a 3:49!

Rosa said...

I'll try anything once! And I'm ready to do a full!

Toni Yaple said...

This would be a great marathon to get the ultimate PR and qualify for Boston!

Jenn said...

Hope to join you all in Phoenix! San Diego will be representing!

Amanda said...

My goal time would be 4:30. I live in Chicago but would love an excuse to go to Phoenix!

SD Mom said...

I am so so so excited that all my dearest Blends will be there to cheer me on. If you are going sub 4, please go get breakfast and then come back and run me in! Okay? Deal? I already have Emz on board with this plan!

Belinda said...

My goal time would be 5 hours. That would be a PR for me. I do a run/walk. I would love to go to Phoenix for a marathon.

Sarah said...

I would love to be able to get a 3:30

Melissa Running It said...

Oh the love, so much awesomeness in one place! I've only run one other, so I'd be thrilled with 4:30 at this point!!

kineticfix.com said...

Oh wow, didn't have 26.2 planned for 2015, but this sounds like something not to be missed!!

Scallywag Sprints said...

Dont get me wrong, its super exciting that youre doing it and looks like a fun course, but isnt it kinda insane that people can BQ at that course? I dont think its an allowed WR course for example, or allowed for trial qualifications? Just seems like a big advantage as long as your quads dont crash!

Are you doing any specific downhill training for it?

Michelle said...

Gracious! I've done 1/2's, but not a full - so I would probably shoot for 5.5 hours...

Los Bensonsitos said...

I'm so excited for a full! I haven't done one and this would be amazing goal after having had a baby.

Dawn Scott said...

Would love to win this for my husband.

Tayna said...

I use to live in AZ. I would love to go back and run this race since I never did while I was living there!

Katie Preston said...

I'd love to see a 4:30 up there next to my name!

Rachel O. said...

Geez, my goal would just be to finish. Haven't run a full yet!

Erica @ Erica Finds said...

With that elevation profile... I would shoot for sub 3:30. I have not run that since 2006 but on the right day, I should be able to!

suzie said...

I would love to run a 3:45!!

Crystal m said...

I have yet to run a full but this course looks like a great one to start with!

Crystal Duff said...

My goal would be a new PR. Maybe around 4:30. :)

Trisha Kvien said...

OMG- I want to run this!

RunningLaur said...

This race lines up perfectly with work travel, I'd love to run it!

Kerianne said...

Love that elevation chart!!! Possible under 4? This looks like the ract for it to happen!

Kelly @ Miles to go said...

EEK! That elevation chart looks amazing!

Ivie Hasegawa said...

Wow! I would hope 5:00. Eeeek
