You'll have to get your own bike!

Every Mom to Iron Mom’s Coach Robin and I are partnering up with the fabulous people at Iron Girl to give away a free race entry to a Sprint Triathlon! A Sprint is much less scary than a full triathlon, just so you know. We’ll be doing a half mile swim, a 22 mile bike ride and a 5k run. Piece of cake, people! [Cough. I think I can, I think I can!]

Here are the details, via Robin:

How would competing in your first triathlon empower and transform your life? Tell us and win an entry to Iron Girl’s Portland women’s triathlon (sorry guys, even if you look totally cute in a running skort, this is a women’s-only offer).

Plus, you’ll get six weeks of coaching from me, either in person (if you live in the Eugene area) or via email if you live elsewhere. You’ll get to join Julie from as she embarks on her journey to her first triathlon.

I’ve always been a huge believer in the transformative power of triathlon in women’s lives. Time and time again, I’ve stood at the finishing line and watched as women cross the line a different person than when they started the race. This is why Iron Girl’s mission of empowering women to a healthy lifestyle through women’s-only races is something that I feel very positive about partnering with. This contest will run here, and on Chubby Mommy Running Club’s blog.


1. Write an entry describing yourself, your journey, and why competing in this triathlon would empower and transform your life.

2. Email your entry to:

everymom2ironmom   at   gmail   dot   com

(replace at with @ and dot with . )
Entries are due by June 7th.

3. A neutral source (most likely my husband) will print out all of the entries and remove any identifying information.  Julie from Chubby Mommy Running Club, Mandy from Just Breathe Movement Studio and I will read through them all and pick the lucky gal who will win the free race entry.

4. Even if you don’t win, you can get $10 off your race entry by using this coupon code: IGBLOG . You can register for the race here.

Yes, this is a sponsored post! Both Robin and I are receiving products and race entries from Iron Girl in exchange for running this contest. Because we want to!
