I have AWESOME news! And I’m positively, all-encompassingly GIDDY OVER IT. Is that even a word!? Oh screw it I’m so excited that I DON’T CARE!!
I was invited to be an Ambassador for Cooking Light & Health’s Fit Foodie 5K Race Weekend in Fairfax, Virginia!
I have my fellow fit blogger and amazing friend Cynthia to thank for this incredible honor. She’s the BEST and I owe her BIG!
So what will Salt be up to
from June 20 – 22?
Eating delicious food (and probably drinking delicious wine)? Check! A fun 5K race? Check! An invigorating yoga class? Check! The opportunity to learn a lot from fitness industry professionals? Check! Basically this sounds like my dream weekend. I can’t believe I get to be a part of it!
The Fit Foodie Weekend is a huge celebration of food and fitness, featuring cooking and fitness demonstrations, exclusive celebrity chef tastings, a 5k, the choice of a yoga session or a fitness boot camp and obstacle course both led by celebrity trainers, and so much more. I toyed around with the idea of doing the boot camp and obstacle course, but since yoga is sort of one of my things I would rather come back here and tell you all about what a great experience it was taking a class taught by Kristin McGee and not about the sad time I cried at boot camp. Each event is open for individual registration OR you could make a little vacation of it like I’m doing and make it a whole weekend of fun! (Bolded for emphasis because I really hope some of you will!! I’d love to start a team for the 5K!)
Regardless of what you choose to do, 10% of the ticket sale goes to an amazing charity called City of Hope, a top treatment and research facility for cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening illnesses. You’ll spend the weekend getting fit while giving back. I love events with a good cause.
So you want to come run with me right??
Let me sweeten the deal a little more. When you go to register add in the promo code RUNSALTRUN at checkout and you will receive 10% off!
The Fit Foodie will be a fun trend on social media over weeks as well. I encourage all of you to give them a follow on Facebook and also on Twitter where I’ll be hashtagging photos of all my nearly countless pairs of new shoes with #TweetYourFeet as I train for the weekend. For more information on all the fabulous events of the Fit Foodie 5K weekend, go HERE. Warning: Do not look on an empty stomach because some of it is likely to make you hangry.
I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY! My morning started with a pretty nice 8 mile run. Not even the woman who backed out of her driveway and almost ran over me after looking directly at me and still not stopping – and then subsequently rolling down her window to yell obscenities at me as if it was all somehow my fault – can ruin my good mood! I post pictures of Flat Salt before races all the time and this time I was almost actual Flat Salt.
Have you traveled out of state for a race? Where did you go?
