I’ve posted this on various social media sites but want all you readers to know that I am so excited to be an ambassador for the Asheville Marathon and Half at Biltmore Estate again for the 2016 race. There are some big changes for y’all to look forward to.

The first year of this race there was just a full marathon. The weather was cold as it can be in March in the mountains of western North Carolina. The second year, as you can see from my photo above, was wet. I think the rain started just as “The Star Spangled Banner” ended and we runners took off. This year, and hopefully future years as well, it was absolutely gorgeous.

As the weather has finally come around, the race evolved from initially only a full marathon to a full and a half starting at the same time on a Sunday to what is coming in 2016. The expo will be Friday and Saturday in the afternoon. The races will be the half on Saturday and the full on Sunday. There will be special bling for those who take the challenge and run both.

I know y’all are dying to run this favorite race of mine with me so through the end of July you can get the biggest discount available all year on the race fee by using the code NICKI2016AMAROCKS when you register. This will give you a 15% discount on the half or the full or the challenge.

Looking forward to racing with you next March! What races do you look forward to every year?
