Title 9K Boulder: What’s Your Inspirational Story?

It’s no secret that at our events, we do things differently. At our upcoming 2015 Title 9K+ Boulder, the top three fastest women across the line, the fastest mom with stroller, and the first girl and boy under 18 will receive prize bags filled with great items contributed by our vendors.

It’s not just our two dedicated stroller divisions that make our events different: the three best inspirational stories will also receive awards.

A Boulder ultrarunner, Jenn (above) had the unthinkable happen during a training run, an experience which she shared with the world via Zelle. Her experience this past summer will certainly make crossing the finish line with her four kids this year on Mother’s Day – a day that she did not necessarily think she would live to see – even more memorable.

We invited Jenn to celebrate her Mother’s Day with us at the Title 9K+ this year, and in turn, she asked to share a few words with you all on race day. We’re sharing what she had to say in advance, and how to share an inspirational story of your own with us.

Do It In a Dress: Meet Lisa

We love this “Do It In a Dress” customer submission from Lisa F. of Oakland, CA. Thank you again Lisa for sharing how you spin!

Here’s the story straight from Lisa:
“DO IT IN A DRESS IS MY NEW MANTRA: Hi. My name is Lisa F. I was reading your catalog after work yesterday and loved your “Do it in a Dress” photo and slogan. It prompted me to tell you this story that happened to me on March 28th.

DIIAD_LisaF

I had just finished teaching an 8 a.m. spin class at the Club at the Claremont in Oakland, Calif. I had showered and changed into a black, sporty dress, on my way out to a bar mitzvah. I was almost out the door when the club manager told me that the 9 a.m. teacher was a no show. I popped my head in. About 25 club members were already on their bikes, waiting for class to begin and the teacher was not answering her phone. I sprung into action. (There’s nothing worse than not having your teacher not show up for class.) I strapped on my cycling shoes and taught the entire class in my dress. The class was super happy and grateful. One even took pictures. I had a blast – the dress was actually quite comfortable, minus the skirt part getting caught on the seat once or twice! I raced home, (didn’t shower) and threw on a purple version of the same dress. Made it to the bar mitzvah a bit late, but not so bad. I still heard the important part of the service.”

Is there anything that can’t be done in a dress? We don’t think so.

Title 9K Boulder: Our 2015 Supporters

Our Title 9Ks are different – and we like it that way. There are no traditional age groupings, but there is an all-chocolate aid station. We celebrate the walking new mom pushing a baby jogger over the line for the first time with the same fanfare as she who breaks the finish line tape. The backs of our race tees aren’t billboards, and our reusable goodie bags are filled with just that: goodies.

This year, our Title 9K Boulder participants will take home treats from long time supporters

Local to T9HQ and our oldest Title 9K event supporter, LUNA is proud to now boast a completely gluten-free line. We would also like to thank Honey Stinger for not only putting their beloved waffles in our goodie bags, but also for providing snacks for the finishers of our Ragamuffin Run, our free pre-race event for kids 2 to 8.

Another thing that makes every Title 9K unique is our free expo, with our 13th annual Boulder event being no exception. Who doesn’t love stashing a few extra goodies in their race bag? We know everyone loves to grab a snack after a good run, so we’ve made sure that our expo includes local eats for everyone, including some selections free of gluten, eggs, dairy and more. Supporters LUNA, Honey Stinger and Snack Out Loud will be making appearances in the goodie bags and at the expo, where they will be joined by other long-standing Title 9K expo supporters
