Firecracker 5K/10K (March 1, 2015): Rosemarie said that she may be running the 10K again next year.  It looks like a fun race!  There is a $5 off discount code, which is good only for today, December 13th.  Use the code:  “GIMMEGIMME”


OC Full and Half Marathon (May 3, 2015):  If anybody is planning on running this race next year, 12 Days of Savings began on December 12th.  You save $12 on the 12th and the discount decreases by a dollar each day.


Regine Sediva from Ralph’s:  I was shopping at the Ralph’s in Brea the other day.  I happened to notice that the cashier had a race medal around her neck.  She said that she wore it to show her co-workers, some of whom are also runners.  Regine placed 2nd in the women’s visually impaired division of the California International Marathon in Sacramento last weekend with a finish time of 4:07.  Regine also ran the Boston Marathon in 2013 and here is a story about her experience:

When I first entered the line at Ralph’s to check out…I was the only customer.  After chatting with Regine for awhile…I turned around and saw 5 to 6 customers waiting behind me.  They were AMAZINGLY PATIENT and not a single one made a comment of gave me the stink eye for being so chatty and holding up the line.  So…if you ever see me out shopping…you might want to pick a different lane to check out. LOL
