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’d love to take this opportunity today to give a shout-out to the sponsors that have showered the race ambassadors with swag during the last few weeks!  I’ll start off with the sponsors, Cooking Light and Health.

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!
