On Monday, I posted that we’d run a discount code for the Operation Jack Marathon. I used a picture of my son Jack (the Jack in Operation Jack Marathon) to advertise that. Back on his first day of school, he held a sign and if you know your Jay-Z, it was pretty funny. So, I went with the same concept. I’m biased, but I think Jack is cute and it was a fun little thing to do.
Here’s the pic I ran:
I loved the pic and went with it. I’d been planning on running a discount with a picture with him for fun for about a week. I wasn’t sure what the code would be. I was thinking IMWITHJACK or OJ2013 … I wasn’t sure. But then for whatever reason, I decided it would be 1IN50. Because that’s why the race exists in the first place. 1 in 50 kids have autism nowadays and it needs to stop. I like to say, “do what you do best and let everybody else do the rest” … my way of fighting autism is through running. And because of Jack, himself a 1 in 50, there’s an Operation Jack, which led to the Operation Jack Marathon.
I had no idea that I’d get all serious in announcing a discount code. But I guess it just happened that way. 1IN50 — use CAPS with the IN. Use the code through this Sunday, October 27, to save $10 off the half or the full. That’ll drop your price to just $55 for the half and $65 for the full. For a race that runs along the ocean, has mountain views, is flat and fast, boasts 60-degree temps in late December, offers a custom 4-inch die cast medal and benefits a great cause, you just can’t do better than that!
I’ll definitely be at the race. I hope to see you out there! CLICK HERE to register! Have a great Wednesday![subscribe2]
