Twelve Days to Boston Photochallenge Giveaway

You know you're getting close to the Boston Marathon when you're;  a) in taper mode b) you start paying attention to the weather in Boston and c) you're starting to think about packing.  Thirty days away from the Boston Marathon, four bloggers (Weight Off My Shoulders, LVRUNSNYC, Fluency's Folly, and Racing Tales) joined me and started the #30DaysToBoston #Photochallenge.  We have seen some great daily postings on blogs, twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.  With the "clock winding down," we're starting a daily countdown starting on Wednesday with #12DaysToBoston, counting down to #Raceday.  Post your #Photochallenge pictures with (original) #30DaysToBoston hashtag along with each daily tag and the countdown tag; Wednesday will include #30DaysToBoston, #12DaysToBoston, and #Fuel hashtags.  Today's hashtag is appropriately, #Taper.  I'll post my #Taper photo to Instagram and Facebook later today.

Our good friends at Generation UCAN have also provided a giveaway promotion for the #30DaysToBoston #Photochallenge.  My coach and local running store turned me onto their nutrition products and I'm absolutely hooked on their revolutionary "superstarch" products.

Fueling myself with their gluten-free lemonade-flavored sports drink 30 minutes before my last 20+ mile training run for Boston, I had my BEST long run of this training session.  My workout had progressive four mile intervals ending below marathon goal pace in the last leg.  No bonk and great energy at mile 20.  I had never run progressives or negative splits for that matter at this distance.  Crazy good stuff.

Generation UCAN has provided two starter kits which includes their "Multi-Flavor Pack;" (4) pre-workout drinks, (2) post-workout drinks, and UCAN 28 oz. blender bottle for two participants in the #30DaysToBoston #Photochallenge.  There are multiple ways to enter as shown below.
