I’m so excited to join the team as a 2018 Fit Foodie Run ambassador! I ran the Austin Fit Foodie 5K for the first time back in 2015 and had an awesome time at the race and an even better time at the post race festival!
This year, the Fit Foodie Run (and AMAZING post race festival) will be in 4 locations around the country:
🍍Fairfax, VA – June 2 (this is the one I’m running!)
🍉Austin, TX – June 23
🍊 Denver, CO – July 28
🍓 San Diego, CA – October 20th
For my Friday Five, I thought I would share my top reasons to run the Fit Foodie Run this year!
Food + Fitness
The Fit Foodie Run is all about the combination of a healthy lifestyle and delicious food – something I can definitely get behind. (…#WILLRUNFORFOOD)
No Kid Hungry
I’m excited about Fit Foodie Run’s continuing partnership with the No Kid Hungry campaign, which connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. The campaign also engages the public to make ending child hunger a national priority. Recently, my sorority announced their new national philanthropic focus of Fighting Hunger and I’m excited to contribute to this mission through the Fit Foodie Run.
Post Race Food & Fitness Festival
The post run Food & Fitness Festival features bites from local restaurants, beer garden, mini-workout classes, cooking demonstrations, and more.
Last year, runners in Fairfax had the opportunity to meet Des Linden and Ryan Hall. I mean, 2018 Boston Marathon Winner DES LINDEN! How cool is that? I don’t know who will be there this year, but I’m looking forward to their announcement!
