Weekend Runaround: Hike Me To The Moon, LA Marathon’s Cheer Alley

Hike Me To The Moon

I’m all about the nighttime running/trail events. There is a new inaugural hike happening at Runyon Canyon this weekend hosted by ROCK TODAY. For $15 you will be taken (in different pace groups) up along Runyon for a scenic sunset hike… all ending with a private party in the hills. Not bad! Tickets must by purchased by Friday the 18th on their eventbrite page in order to attend.

Not running the LA Marathon? Why not go out and support all your friends and favorite celebrities! Some of the most notable celebrities this year: Edward Norton and Flea.

LA Marathon traffic is enough of a cluster eff as it is… so if you are confused as to where to go check out and support your favorite runners start off with heading over to the K-Swiss Cheer Alley as they attempt to break the Guinness World Record™ for ‘Largest Cheerleading Dance.’

I figured since I’m not marathoning this year, I might as well be a part of a record breaking event!

Chinatown Firecracker 10K Tweetup and Giveaway

If you’re running the Chinatown Firecracker 5k / 10k come grab some dim sum afterward. I’m also going to give away a free pair of K-Swiss tube trainers courtesy of KSPACE.TV to a random RSVP to the tweetup! Details:

Konfession: I’m a Konejo Konvert

I was recently given a pair of K-Swiss Konejos to try and me being me, I was more than slightly reluctant to do a run without my Lunarglides. K-Swiss has recently come out with a new and critically acclaimed running shoe line and is making its mark in the running world by being a major sponsor for this year’s LA Marathon.

All marathon sponsorship aside, I took the Konejos out for a 6 mile training run (mile repeats at 10K pace) and although maybe not the brightest idea to run in new shoes at that distance, it was one of the fastest 6 miles I’ve ran in a while. OK, in all honestly these shoes don’t make you fast, I’ve been training my a** off lately, but they definitely didn’t hurt in the process.

Really easy ride, surprising light and flexible for a stability shoe. Love them!

So now I’m officially a shoe convert. Life is strange sometimes.

You can find out more about the Konejo’s on the K-Swiss site, they also have a pretty decent neutral running shoe (the Keahoa).
