I have been contacted by NEON Sock to do a test and review for their NEON Ankle Performance Running Socks! They have given me an Amazon discount code to try them out and give them a review.
They would also like my readers to review their product for them. They have given me a discount code for each of you. Please post a comment below of your interest to try them, and I will get in touch with you with the code. This code will get you $5.00 off a 3 – pack!
Once you have tried out the socks, please return and respond to this post with your review.

Below is an email from the Kiawah Island Marathon. It has links from the races last weekend. However, it also has an early registration list for the 2014 races. If you register before the end of 2013, you get one heck of a deal on the registration price. Have a look and consider it.
Congratulations to all of the runners who crossed the finish line, reached their goals, or broke a PR! Each of you that participated is what sets our race apart from others, and we can’t begin to thank all of our volunteers!
Official Race Photography
Sports in Motion photos are now available. They are wonderful, check them out!
Featuring innovative post-race statistics, Runpix is a great site to see how you stacked up against other runners and offers a deeper insight into your performance on the race course (race results are still unofficial).
Race registration is now open! The 37th Annual Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon will be held on Saturday, 12.13.14. Register in 2013 for an incredible rate: $45 for the Half Marathon and $55 for the Full Marathon.
A special thank you to all the runners who utilized our new drop zones. It made a huge impact on the clean-up efforts. Our FWD composting effort was unprecedented, with more than 50,000 cups, 16 trays of oranges and 16 boxes of bananas on the course; it is amazing to think that the course generated only five cans of landfill trash….this is awesome! Protecting our critters and our Island is so important to us, and the runners’ efforts are very much appreciated.
Did we capture your Kiawah Moment? Photos will continue to be uploaded to Facebook. Tag yourself and share as well.
We want to hear from you! Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for a brief survey.
On behalf of our Marathon Staff, we wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season! Train Right, Run Well- so we can meet again on 12.13.14, the best date yet in all 37 years of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon!

Since the race is next weekend, this will be done soon, so you can make plans.

The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run™ is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!
If you have never heard of The Color Run™, and want to know more about it, click here.
There are only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color!
For those that do not win the raffle, you can go to the website and register and use the PROMO CODE: COLOR5OFF to get a $5 off discount. The promo code is valid for any city that is not sold out.
