I love running. I’ll never win any marathons or anything, but it doesn’t matter. I still love it. My first marathon
was the Nike Women’s Marathon in 2005 when I first moved out to LA. And since then, I’ve completed 13 more full or half marathon races. I started running as a way to meet people and to do something good for myself.
Back in the day, even before I joined Team in Training, I used to run with the Nike Club Team. We’d meet a couple of times a week for 3-5 mile runs around the city. It feels like a lifetime ago, but it was fun. Nike even provided dinner for all the runners each time!
But now, Nike is taking it to the next level. On April 27-28, Nike is hosting a Virtual 10K race. But this isn’t your average 10K. This is Girls Night Out — Nike Style!
Introducing: She Runs LA Powered by Nike+!
From Nike: There’s no start line, no finish line and definitely no skinny guys in short shorts lining up in front of you before the gun goes off. It’s just you, your girlfriends and the city you love to run. And afterwards? Forget the usual free bananas and sports drinks. Nike is hosting a serious celebration, where you’ll trade your sports bra for skinny jeans and live it up with 5,000 college girls from all over the city.
Sign me up! I’ll be participating in this event for sure! (Lots of other bloggers are too!) Who’s with us?
All you have to do is Register Here
and run a 10k (anywhere you want) between April 27th and April 28th. Full details on the website
. Anyone who registers gets invited to a swanky LA Party
(complete with a Red Carpet!) at the Nokia Theater in Downtown LA on April 28th at 7pm. It will be a night of fashion, dancing and a musical guest ‘you won’t want to miss’! They’ve promised celebrity appearances
Now I need a new dress…..
If you register, let me know! I’ll be getting up at the crack of dawn on April 28th to run my 6.2 miles. Anyone want to join me?
EDITED TO ADD: “The first 50 people to respond will have their registration fee waived and will get to be a part of Nike’s first ever digital race, She Runs LA, and see Mike Posner in concert!”
HI, I came across this post when I searched for SHE RUNS LA PROMOTIONS… I noticed this was for last year, but do you know of anyone doing promotions again for this years run?? If so, please let me know 😀 thanks
No, I haven’t heard of any promotions, but the run looks so fun this year! Last year it was a virtual race, but this year it’s a real event! Good luck if you run!!
Hi there, I was referred to you by Paula Ross and she said that you would email me a code for free sign up. I am a kick boxer and not a runner, but Paula says I can walk! So I am willing to give this a try! Hope to hear from you soon.
Count me in!
Sounds like fun! Where do I sign up?

Kaitlin told me about this event and I am hoping to get out of the work event I have that Wednesday night! Fingers crossed!
Yes! I am so excited to do this event!
I want to do this! How fun!
You should totally organize an LA blogger run + stalking event!
I wish it were on a weekend.
You should come! Just run in the morning and then come party with us!! 7p downtown!
Interesting. I used to use Nike+ before the chip died on me three times.
Sounds like fun… I’m probably going to be a bit occupied during that time or else I’d do it, too.
I might be changing my mind… can boys do this, too? Do you need a Nike+? I want to try to make it, or at least do the race and get the swag!
