I'm really excited to offer something new for this year's race: FREE RACE PICTURES! The amazing Alex Santiago who shot pictures at last year's race will be back again. And all pictures will be posted for free download. Downloading all your race pictures from a company like Zazoosh costs $62.95. But at Baker's Dozen......free! You can check out Alex's pictures from last year at on our Gallery link.

Last year these guys made custom shirts for the race. This year there will be an all-out costume contest with amazing prizes. With sponsors like St. George Running Center, Ultraspire, Classic Sports, and High Knees Cycling you know the prizes will be good. Start planning your costume now!

I am more excited than a runner in a Hostess outlet store to announce all the awesome sponsors for the race. We will have great prizes, support, or gift cards from Ultraspire, Durango's, St. George Running Center, Paragon Real Estate, Farmer's Market, Arby's, Classic Sports, Lin's, Sweet Tooth Fairy, and High Knees Cycling!

Our aid stations will also include cookies from The Sugar Cookie. My wife and I started buying cookies here and we now get the shakes if we go more than a few days without one of their molasses cookies. Pure heaven.

If you haven't already, you ought to check out the Baker's Dozen Facebook page - there is some funny stuff going on over there.

I'm very excited to show you the medal for the Baker's Dozen Half Marathon. Remember - to earn the medal you need to run the half marathon, not the 5k. And these suckers are going to be BIG! If you earned a medal at last year's race - there are going to be that big. Only a week to register before fees go up! See you there.

We've endured a very sad day in our nation's history with our beloved Hostess doing out of business. Now what are we going to eat to fuel our training?!?!?!??!?

Last night I ran a few loops of The Baker's Dozen course (about 6.5 miles total) with my wife and her sister Rachel. I really love the course, it made me even more excited for the race. I took the following picture during our run. I thought my wife was wearing a head lamp but my friend John Beckstrand knew differently. He said "The Baker's Dozen will unleash the unicorn in you!"
