After weeks of tweeting, instagraming, facebooking, and blogging about Cooking Light and Health’s Fit Foodie 5K Race Weekend, it’s almost here! Are you ready for a fun filled healthy weekend in the Mosaic District in Fairfax ? I certainly am!
I have been a fan of Cooking Light for a very long time. For many years I gave their magazine subscription to my very good friend each year for Christmas. The race ambassadors were sent Cooking Light’s Dinnertime Survival Guide and I can’t wait to dig into it! I already have their Complete Cookbook and refer to it often for family favorites.
Health provided each ambassador with a pair of earbuds in a handy little pouch. As every runner knows, earbuds are a necessity for music-loving runners.
New Balance was kind enough to give each ambassador a new pair of running shoes! I chose the 1080v4′s which make me feel like I’m running on clouds. I’m planning Saturday’s racing outfit around these beauties!
The Green Spoon is giving each ambassador two gluten-free gourmet lunches and dinners! It looks like someone is getting a night off from making dinner one night next week!
And just today Bill and I came home from work to find a big white perishable box waiting on the front porch. Inside was such a pleasant surprise! Sartori Cheese had shipped five cheese wedges, a cutting board and knife, and four wine glass charms. Bill and I added the Apothic Red wine! I haven’t tried the other cheeses, but I can say that the Asiago Rosemary and Olive Oil is fabulous!
Sartori also sent the ambassadors a cooler bag, water bottle, hat, and pedometer (not pictured).
Posh Seven Magazine gave each of the ambassadors a mug when we checked in at the Light Up The Night VIP Cocktail Party on Friday evening. (edited 6-22-14).
Thank you again to all of the sponsors of the Fit Foodie 5K Race Weekend. I look forward to meeting many, if not all, of you this weekend!
