Thank you to 1st Place Sports and Tropical Smoothie Cafe for sponsoring today’s conversation about the Winter Beach Run!
Hey, friends – I’ve got lots of good stuff in store for you in 2017! For starters, I’ll be talking a lot more about local (NE Florida/Jacksonville) races. This should include some giveaways for free race entries, so keep an eye out for that if you live in the area.
First up – the Winter Beach Run organized by 1st Place Sports. I ran this race in 2013, and it was both challenging and fun (in case you can’t tell from the photo).

Here’s what you need to know:
When: Saturday, January 28 at 2pm
What: 10-mile and 5-mile beach race
Where: starts at the Jacksonville Pier
How: Register HERE
You can learn more about the race on the Facebook event page. It’s looking like it’s going to be on the colder side on Saturday (59*/38*, mostly sunny with winds 9 mph), so remember your layers. And check out the medal – nice, right?
After the race, you can power through your New Year’s resolutions at Tropical Smoothie Cafe! Their “Shine On Hours” happen every day from 3-5 pm. They feature the Supergreen Caesar Wrap & Salad for $4.99 and Powerpacked smoothies for only $1.99. ($1.99 smoothie valid with purchase of any food entrée excluding breakfast, sides, and kid’s items).
My friend Stacy is running this in my place, and I can’t wait to hear all about it from her (and you)! Tag me in your social media posts (@mommyrunsit) so I can see your photos & results!
