Yes, of course I am on a first name basis with Shalane Flanagan, Bart Yasso, and the editors of Runner’s World.
Okay. Maybe not. I mean, I have MET Bart. But maybe, just maybe, after a pretty awesome weekend that I am finalizing, I will be CPF (close personal friends) with the said names above.
I know yall might think I’m a little cra-cra. BUT I couldn’t pass this opportunity up (and yes, the PT has given her stamp of approval). I am going to the first annual Runner’s World half marathon & festival October 19th-21st.
I get to meet some fellow fitfluential ambassadors (and reunite with HTC teammate Katie Runs This) and spend the weekend talking, living, and breathing all things running. Pretty pumped. AND I get to check off a new state-the race is in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The weekend includes seminars, running movies (is it sad I want to see HTC and I own it myself??), dinner with race editors, Shalane Flanagan appearances, and of course, RUNNING!
To be safe, I am only running the half. I may actually have to do my first walk/run, but I am taking what I can get. There is also a 5K and 10K on Saturday and runners have the opportunity to do the hat trick (all 3 running events). If you want to come and join me for any or all of the events, you can get 10% off by using the code BLOGGER4.
The only thing I am waiting on is a picture of this bling! Side note-you get a medal for each event. Pretty cool. So bummed I’m missing the hat trick.
Are YOU going to the RW half and festival? Any interest in joining me?
