Charm City Run Race Series Deal and a Detox

Today I have a great race deal to tell you about if you a Baltimore area runner! I was planning on running at least the Charles Street 12 Miler Race which I ran last year again, but ended up signing up for the Sole of the City 10K and the Shamrock 5K (last year's recap here) too because I couldn't pass up this great offer! And I'm a crazy running lady. Of course.

If you run Charm City Run races there is a new packaged price for the newly created B3 race series which includes the annual Shamrock 5K on March 16, the Sole the City 10K on April 12, and the Charles Street 12 Miler on August 9. Also right now (unless it sells out!) there is a deal on LivingSocial for the B3 series where you are paying only $150 instead of the $200 regular series price. Registering for the B3 bundle includes all the premiums for each race and a special B3 finisher's medal and Under Armour backpack. What an amazing deal-I'm glad I hadn't registered for the races yet. 

 I've done all three races previously, and they are all in different parts of the city but all fun! It's a great way to bite the bullet and sign up for some races to make those New Year's fitness goals a reality!
You can get to the LivingSocial deal right here and find more information about the B3 series from Charm City Run here
I read on the Charm City Run Facebook page that if you have registered for one or two of the races already you can email Charm City Run to get in for the B3 series if you want to run all three!

In other news, I'm starting a three-day Skinny Limits juice cleanse today (edit: tomorrow!). I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty worried because I love food and get hungry easily. That could be a problem.

 I enjoy juices as snacks or with meals but never usually have them in place of a meal so I was curious to try a cleanse. Juice cleanses seem to be all the rage lately, especially as a way to detox after the holidays. Skinny Limits is an Austin-based completely raw juice and raw foods company. They use no processing or pasteurization since it doesn't have to be shelf stable like juices you find in grocery stores. I talked to some really nice people at the company so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'll definitely update you after I've had a few juices and tell you all about the cleanse when it's over! I am awful at sticking to strict plans for eating or working out, but this is only three days. I can do it. But I may be begging people for food on Twitter, we'll see.

 I already have plans for pizza and drinks with friends on Friday, don't worry.

Are you signed up for 2014 races yet? Have you ever done a juice cleanse? Did you survive?


  1. Wah! I would love to sign up for the b3 but I'm taking a hiatus for the rest of my pregnancy which is killing me! I feel a little lost not having a race to look forward to. I've never done a cleanse but definitely want to try juicing this year seeing as we received a juicer as a wedding present 1.5 yrs ago that we've never touched, haha.

  2. I think I might just do the deal for the Sole of the City 10K - I am hoping for a triathlon Aug 17, and knowing me, I'm going to need my rest, so no long running the week before for me! Haven't done a cleanse...I go nuts if I don't eat every 3 hours haha.

  3. I am going to try a 3 day cleanse this week! I am going to use Blue Print, it was crazy expensive, but I just found out that one of the grocery stores buy me carries it, so I can at least save on the shipping costs. I'm super curious to hear how yours goes!

    And right now I'm registered for the Disney Princess Half Marathon and Family 5k. Not sure what else is going to happen in 2014 :)

  4. I haven't done a cleanse in years however I do eat a gluten free real food organic diet including a whole food organic veggie and fruit blended drink each day. Feeling great!
