Esprit de She Countdown and Giveaway! {Closed}

This Giveaway has closed.  Check our most recent postings for other great giveaways.

40 Days! 

Just forty days until my Esprit de She run in Atlanta.  

There will be both a 5K and a 10K event, and I am signed up for the 10K.

I've done a few women's races before and they really are a lot of fun.  Women of all ages participate. No worries about your fitness level, as there is a great atmosphere of support for the competitive runners and the non-competitive alike.

Like many runners, I'm not big on race day surprises, so I wanted to learn more.  This is particularly true since this is my first Esprit de She event.  This video below from a previous event gave me a little taste of what I can expect.  Check it out! I'll wait while you do.

Pretty cool!  All the ladies are running, walking, enjoying the day, and just having a great time.  Probably the big difference will be is that the Atlanta race is at night.  But here are a few more details about the Atlanta event:

"Athleta Esprit de She features a signature post-race rendezvous complete with bubbly bar, tasty tapas and community market showcasing fresh produce, local artisans, creative projects and more." 

Tasty after-race treats!  Cool shopping!  What more could a girl ask for?

Oh yes, a swag bag...

"To complement the fun race experience, participants will receive a custom designed, tri-blend lifestyle tank as well as a stylishly functional race bag to use while shopping the post-race night market!"

I think the race itself will be fantastic but I am really looking forward to the whole trip.  I used to live in Atlanta, but haven't been there in many years - so this will a great chance to revisit some of my old haunts for a long weekend and enjoy a wonderful race.  Sounds like a great little racecation!

I haven't yet! But I would love to do one someday :)


Earlier this year I did the See Jane Run 1/2 in Seattle. I've also done a couple women's only 5ks and the Disney Tinkerbell and Princess 1/2s.

I plan to run this race and it will be my 1st all woman race.

I've done the Run She is Beautiful in Santa Cruz, and also the Tinkerbell Half and Nike Women's Half


I've done Tufts 10k.


I've done several women's only races recently - The Nike Women's Half Marathon in DC, the Maryland Women's Sprint Duathlon, and the Iron Girl Rocky Gap triathlon! It seems like my year for women-only races!


I'm learning about all these other wonderful women's race series! Thanks everyone! Keep the comments coming!


I haven't run an all woman's race yet but I am planning on signing my mom and I up for the Irongirl mother/daughter 5k next April!


I did a women only 5K trail race, but that is it so far!


I have not entered a women's only race... because I'm a man!


I did my first womens-only race this year: See Jane Run half marathon in Wichita. It was a lot of fun! :)


Hmm. That would make it difficult. One neat thing about the Esprit de She race is some of the races have had a beer garden type area for the husbands, boyfriends, sons, etc - while they wait for their runner. So it could still be a fun event if you have a loved one running. :)

Nike Women's Half Marathon was MOSTLY women but definitely not all women, there were plenty of men running it. I have not done one, wouldn't mind doing one but my race selection isn't very flexible because of my schedule.


Nope I have not entered a women's race before. I would love to register to one though. :)


Never entered a female only race, but might be interested in it :)


Beer garden, you say? Gives me more incentive to support my wife ;)
