Back in the Day 10K & City Sports Gift Card Giveaway

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

My friends at City Sports are hosting their first ever road race on June 30th in Somerville. It’s an 80s-themed 10K (so fun!) to celebrate their 30th Anniversary and proceeds from registration will go to cancer care and research.

To create some buzz for the Back in the Day 10K, City Sports is offering a gift card giveaway and a special registration promo code on CNC, so both local and not-so-local readers can celebrate their inaugural race.


Registration for the Back in the Day 10K is $45 and participants will receive a limited edition race tee, commemorative pint glass, and 80s-style CS shades. If you’d like to register, you can save $5 off the cost with the promo code XFIT1983. (The code is only valid for 50 uses, so be sure to hop on it!)

  1. I had an AMAZING time at the Davis Square St. Patty’s Day 5K one year in a freezing rain. The whole situation was just so ridiculous that everyone had a blast.

  2. The SCOPE 5K Sprint for Colorectal Cancer and Oncology Prevention and Education. Felt good to run for a good cause!

  3. I had a great time at the Battle of Bunker Hill 8k today in Charlestown. It was special because I got to run it with my dad for Father’s Day!

  4. I ran the rock and roll Vegas and had a blast running on the strip while taking photos and meeting people along the way.

  5. I loved the Nike women 1/2 in DC this year – my family did a great job cheering along the course, the weather was perfect, and I had a good fun!

  6. The most fun I had at a road race was a Jingle Bell Run last fall when my coworkers and I dressed up as Santa and his reindeer and elves!

  7. The most fun had to be watching all of the crazy runners dressed up for Bay to Breakers. I ran the race dressed totally normal, but people were dressed in costume and also nude. Only in San Francisco!

  8. I’ve never actually run a road race before but they seem awesome! Right now I’m in the process of starting to run long distances again and soon I’ll be looking for an upcoming race to sign up to motivate me even more!

  9. The most fun I’ve ever had was running with my fiancé! It was just so nice to do a race with him and it adds that little competitive edge when you’re trying to beat each other! Haha

  10. The most fun I ever had at a road race was last year’s Girls on the Run Race.. I ran it with my “little sister” from the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, and we both had such a blast together.

  11. The Covered Bridges Half Marathon was incredible! I ran it for my bachelorette weekend. Not only was the setting gorgeous, but my girls went all out and dressed me up in a bridal veil, etc. It was such a fun race!

  12. My dog, Lucy, and I did our first 5k this year, it was so fun!! We did it with my coworkers and it was so fun to cheer each other on. I never understood the hype, but now I’m hooked!

  13. My first 5 mile race was the Squantum
    5 miler and I loved it because at the time it was the longest distance race I’d done. Felt great sense if accomplishment when I finished. The race also had perfect mix of hills and scenic views. I live races that go through neighborhoods. And great after party at marina bay following!

  14. I’ve run the Boston Marathon 3 years in a row and despite the challenging course, the amazing crowds, cheering sections throughout the ENTIRE course, support, and finish line anticipation make it the most fun race for me!!

  15. the most fun i’ve had at a race was rock n’ roll san diego! awesome crowd support, bands, and good friends!!!

  16. I did the Color Run last summer in Brooklyn – despite being injured and having to walk it, the fact that I got a number of friends to do a race with me made it a blast.

  17. The Falmouth Road race was definitely the most fun I’ve ever had. So much great energy and such a pretty route!

  18. I adore Cartwheel! It saves me tons on the healthy food options my local Super Target sells. If I won the gift card I’d buy a Softshell Jacket and some of their Semi Fit Pants. I am not really a fan of super fit yoga pants l, the semi fit pants look more my speed.
