Rock the Race with Meb!

You know Meb, right? He has a super impressive list of achievements and accomplishments in running, some of the most impressive being a silver medal in the marathon in the 2004 Olympics, a fourth place finish in the 2012 Olympics, and winning the 2009 NYC Marathon.

Meb has an inspiring life story, and he truly exemplifies the American dream. His book "Run to Overcome" is a great read.

I had the honor of running on Team MEB last year for the NYC Marathon and got to spend some time with Meb and his family, and he is as nice of a guy as you could ever meet. So when I was asked to help promote "Rock the Race with Meb" I was more than happy to!

Meb and I in Nov. 2011. The medals are his, not mine. :)

Rock the Race with Meb is an online contest offering up some incredible grand prizes, including the opportunity to train with Meb himself in Mammoth Lakes, CA!!! Some of the other prizes include a trip to a Rock n Roll race of your choosing,  and a VIP trip for two to SXSW 2013. Along with those three grand prizes, weekly drawing will give away Sony W-series MEB edition MP3 players, and Sony Music Pass cards with 25 free song downloads on them. 

So how do you participate in this contest and get the chance to win these great prizes? Check out the Rock the Race with Meb website where you can find all the details on how to play, prizes, etc. The contest started in September and goes through December 18. Sign up, pass the virtual microphone to your friends, and get in on the fun!

And remember to cheer on Meb on November 4 in the NYC Marathon. :)

"Like the marathon, life can sometimes be difficult, challenging and present obstacles, however if you believe in your dreams and never ever give up, things will turn out for the best.” - Meb
