A discount on the Firefly Run New York

Disclaimer added 1/15/2014: As a Firefly Run ambassador, I was offered compensation for referring runners to sign up for the Firefly Run. To date, they have not paid me and they have not answered my follow up e-mails. Meanwhile, they continue to advertise an ambassador program.

Remember when I told you about the Firefly Run in New York/Brooklyn?

They just sent me a reminder that tomorrow, October 2, is the last day for you to use my discount code and save $10. If you’re still thinking about doing the Firefly Run, head over here, click on register, and enter code VILAY13 when you’re checking out.

Your registration will include this cool unisex tech shirt:

It’s pretty rare for a 5k to offer a tech shirt, let alone one a stylish one. I was going to say it was fly, but that would be a dorky pun.

You also get one of these reflective and light-up LED bands. It’s big enough to fit on your wrist, bicep, or ankle. I’ll definitely be re-using this for a night time race or evening runs.

Unfortunately, I can’t join the fun anymore. I had the Diva Dash and the Firefly Run planned this weekend, both races that I’ve been promoting and in the New York area the same weekend. Then some breaking news happened. You may have heard something in the news about certain people being temporarily out of work because of political crap? Now I have to conserve money since I’m not sure when my next paycheck will come. Boo.

If you go, give me a recap so I know how it went!

Farmshare Week 17

The fun of having a farmshare is of course, the surprises. When the season started, I assumed something like July would be the peak bounty but we didn’t have a lot of hot weather. The farmer said that the tons of rain at the beginning of the season slowed the crops. Now we are at the end of September when things are supposed to slow down but we are getting the most vegetables.

Farmshare, week 17

This week, we’ve got:

  • beets
  • white eggplant
  • pattypan squash
  • chard
  • some weird, spiky, mystery herb?
  • bell peppers
  • one scotch bonnet pepper?
  • thyme
  • tomatoes
  • jalapenos

The only thing I missed this week was the lettuce mix. It was the first time all season I didn’t get lettuce!

Firefly Run – NYC

Disclaimer added 1/15/2014: As a Firefly Run ambassador, I was offered compensation for referring runners to sign up for the Firefly Run. To date, they have not paid me and they have not answered my follow up e-mails. Meanwhile, they continue to advertise an ambassador program.

Firefly Run – NYC

I’m excited to announce a new partnership: the Firefly Run 5k in New York! My gift to you is a coupon code to save $10 on the race. I’m excited to be a race ambassador because I love themed races, and I love costumes! Everyone will be decked out in crazy, glowy outfits so get your costumes ready. There will be prizes for the best oufits too.

The charity partner for this race is the American Lung Association so in addition to helping them out, you will get:

  • a tech t-shirt (!)
  • light up LED bracelets
  • glow-in-the-dark rubber bracelets
  • post-race party with snacks (food trucks!) and DJ

Better perks than your average 5k right? I think the price is well worth it for such a fun race. Enter the discount code VILAY13 at checkout to take $10 off your registration fee.
