Kimmy and I decided we wanted to plan a blogger meet-up Marathon weekend. Back when we started planning, I was going to be a spectator so I was going to have plenty of time to help organize. Then I got a number and things certainly shifted.
Kim and I planned the party together but she certainly took the lead in the last few weeks and I couldn't be more thankful. (You are the best swimmy, love you xo) The party ended up being a huge success and it was so much fun hanging out with so many running bloggers from all over the country who share the same interests as me! Held at Cambridge 1 in the Fenway area of Boston, bloggers took over half the restaurant around 2pm.
|Emily (sweatonceaday), Lauren (healthontherun), Bekah (runtrackmind), Corey (runnerscookie), Becky (beckontherun), and me!|
And a big highlight of the night was our goody bags and raffle. Kim and I used some contacts we had to pull together a great goodie bag. We also blindly contacted some companies who were more than happy to help out!
B Good, Bolocco, Ibex, City Sports, South End Athletic Company, CEP Compression Sleeves and Socks as well as New Balance running socks, Ibex hats, Nuun Water Bottles and samples, Justin's Nut Butter and Pretzel Crisps!
SEAC giftcard. SEAC is an amazing store run by two awesome guys- Justin and Dan who ran track with my brother at BC. If you are in Boston, you should totally check out the store : )
And the girls loved their Ibex hats!
Overall, it was a SUPER fun event. I loved meeting so many other running bloggers! I hope we can do more events like this in the future!
Thanks so much to our sponsors and to everyone who made this event so special : )
So because I love the running blog community so much tell me this:
What's your favorite running blog or blogs?
And your favorite running clothes/shoe brand?
Look for me tomorrow, I'll be in GREEN! I'm READY to rock this : ) Stay calm and carry on!
