Thinking Out Loud: an #IndyMini Giveaway!

Clearly Amanda knew what she was doing when she created Thinking Out Loud Thursday it’s that day of the week when you’re caught between the work week and the weekend.  And if you’re like me your to-do list for both is probably a mile long, especially at this time of the year!!

With our last big race of the year complete, the past couple of weeks have been slow and relaxing.  Which is lovely when you’re dealing with a nasty chest cold … slow, short run/walks are the perfect remedy!

We also signed up for another virtual race.  Earlier this week we “celebrated” World Toilet Day with the Toilet Day 5K … and a porta-potty medal!


This next race, though, is near and dear to our hearts as it benefits three children in our community who are battling childhood cancers.  At least 30 of us have committed to the West Warriors 5K in an effort to help bless these families during this very difficult time.

FINALLY … the free stuff!  As a 2016 Indy Mini Ambassador I am so happy to be able to share the latest news and official updates from the 500 Festival Marketing Team with you!  They have already rolled out some fun {challenges} and incentives and I know there are more amazing things in the works!

Today, I am thrilled to share a very special giveaway with you!!  My friends at Indianapolis-based Lids have teamed up with New Era to create a very special cap commemorating the 100th Running of the Indy 500.*

The Indy Mini, which will celebrate its 40th Anniversary in 2016, officially kicks off the month of May in the {racing capital} of the world.  I know several race fans who have done the Indy Mini solely to run or walk on the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

And what better way to celebrate both of these historical events?  {Register for the Indy Mini} by December 20 using my name, Brandi Wolf, as your Ambassador Referral, to be entered to win this historical hat!  Winner will be posted on Java & Sole social media outlets and mailed or delivered on December 21.

*This hat, and others in this collection, will be available for purchase Spring 2016.  

The Indy Mini offers discounts to {college students} and {military personnel} as well as an {Employee Wellness Challenge} that allows for participant discounts as well.  There are lots of ways to save money – but only one way to make sure you don’t miss out on Indy’s month-long celebration!
