RACEDAY BOOK [Review & Giveaway]

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Thank you for participating. If you didn’t win but would like you purchase your own RaceDay Book please go here :)

—————————————————————————————-

I reached out to Lauren from Racedayย Books after readingย her storyย asking to review one of her books. I liked that running is obviously something really important to her and that’s where the idea for these amazing race memory books transpired from.

I was sent a green Raceday book for all of my memories and I love it! I know a lot of you were already really excited about it and you should be – for good reason.

A runner’s creative organizational book – a unique place to display and preserve your race statistics, bib numbers and photos for all your races.

This book makes organizing your races easy and pretty too! If you’re like me and love the idea of scrapbooking and keeping your races organized, but are lazy and don’t actually want to have to do all the work – this book is for you!

From the website:ย 

  • RACEDAY book is approximately 10″ x 12″
  • Book has sections to hold memories for 10 races
  • Front cover is chipboard with diecut window revealing the RACEDAY logo, back cover is chipboard
  • Each of the 10 race sections include a 4 page spread:
    • Page 1: fill in the blank page for race statistics
    • Page 2: chipboard foldout page to display race photos, book includes photo corners to adhere photos
    • Page 3: chipboard page with 9″ x 9″ clear adhesive pocket to display & preserve bib number
    • Page 4: chipboard page with 9″ x 11 1/4″ clear adhesive pocket to display & preserve race finisher’s certificate, course map or other race items
  • Book is wire bound with silver coil and has a brown elastic band closure to safely contain all your race memories

* I am still waiting for the photos I ordered to arrive – so I’ll post so more pics of my raceday book when they arrive!

What I loved:

  • as mentioned above – I love that this organizes my races in a scrapbook that’s easy to use.
  • I like that I have creativity control without having to make everything myself
  • love that there’s a place to put my stats, bibs, photos and anything else I want to keep.
  • I like the organic and ‘clean’ simple look to the book.
  • I love that there’s an elastic that keeps the book closed. <— seriously even with my spatula in there it holds everything in! LOVE!
  • I loved the fact that my racing spatula can fit in the pockets ๐Ÿ˜‰

* The KT tape is in there because I was injured during that race ๐Ÿ˜‰

What I didn’t love:

  • I didn’t love that I can only hold 10 races! lol I want more :)
  • I don’t know if Canadian bibs are wider than American ones, but I had to trim all mine to fit into the “bib slots” – an easy fix.
  • It’s a bit pricey for someone like me – HOWEVER, I have made one basic scrapbook for Colin and it cost me more to make it myself.

The Bottom Line:

This book is worth the $55 it costs and it let’s you be as creative as you want while remaining simple and easy to use. I think that if I had this book before then I wouldn’t have lost the most important bib I’ll ever have – my first race bib ever :( it’s gone and I can’t find it. For that reason alone I think this book is pure genius! Why have a stack of race bibs and blog posts when you can have a personalized raceday memory book to pass around with your children, friends and grandkids :) I love mine!ย 

Now I can remember my races and show them off to others – FOEVER! :)ย 

RACEDAY

  1. I like their facebook page! what a great and interesting giveaway! i have tons of races coming in the next year that this would be perfect for!

  2. I’ve had a desire to make a scrapbook of races but never seem to have the time. I would live the green one and have also “liked” her page so I can keep seeing what else she comes up with. I just finished my first half ironman and have to remember everything about it!

  3. I liked them on FB! Since I’m deathly allergic to pink – I’d go with green, like yours. Now I’m off to tweet about it :) (though I’m not sure I should share – I really want to win it :P)

  4. I have the green one on my christmas list. Right now all my bibs and medals are scrunched in a little box. Woudl love this!!

    I liked on facebook and tweeted about the giveway.

    Pink it is!
