Give the Gift of Endorphin

OK, we all know someone planning to run the LA Marathon, right? But that person may or may not have already registered. So what about purchasing them a gift certificate good for one entry into the 25th Anniversary event? You can actually do that, starting this weekend. We’ll have plenty of certificates for sale at both the Santa Barbara (Saturday) and Las Vegas (Friday and Saturday) Marathon Expos. We can take credit cards or cash, and we’ve got everything pre-packaged in LA Marathon envelopes. If you’re not in either of those places, then by all means stop by the new K-Swiss store at 2427 Main St. in Santa Monica. They’ll have a stack on hand as well. We’ll also have an online purchasing option starting next week.

We’ve got your Marathoner’s gift covered for the holidays.


Qualifying for Boston…In a Dorothy costume

Not only did our Director of Operations Stacy Embretson run New York this weekend, but she set a PR of 3:38:44 and qualified for Boston. And she did it all while running as Dorothy. How much fun is that? Here’s what Stacy had to say: “The costume was really the best decision ever as I had people cheering for ‘Dorothy’ the entire race. Such a fun experience!!”

Let’s not forget that our President Russ Pillar also ran New York, just 3 weeks after finishing Chicago. Russ also PR’d with a 4:41:49.

Congratulations to both of them!
