John Hancock's Fit Foodie 5k in Fairfax, VA : Come Run With Me!
I have a love/hate relationship with running. I hate getting back into running shape but I absolutely love the runners high I get when I am in shape.
I have done a few 5k races in my life but I normally just choose to run on my own. Running for charity is great but I'd rather just donate the money and not run. That is, unless, I personally get something out of it (I know, I am a terrible person)*. Enter in the John Hancock Fit Foodie 5k. Not only do you get to get your fitness on, but you also get two FREE drinks, an awesome goodie bag and lots of different vendors telling you about their awesome food/workout products/samples/etc.
Anyways, I liked the idea of this race so much I decided to apply to be an ambassador for the race...and I was chosen! One of their hashtags is #caloriesburned #caloriesearned - story of my life.
As part of the ambassador program all of my friends, family, readers, anyone really gets 10% off the price of the race.
