Happy Thursday from wannabe Florida. 😉 Jokes.The never-ending swampy summer struggle is real here in southern California. It’s almost impossible to get your basic white girl on when the weather makes scarves and boots and pumpkin lattes miserable.
Anyways, I have some fun news to share! (via)
You may have already noticed the notes on my Instagram profile, but I’m now an ambassador for the Fit Foodie 5K Race Weekend in San Diego! I’m beyond excited, can I just tell you that? The race series is hosted by Cooking Light and Health, aka two of my very favorite magazines. It may sound silly to some, but I’m honored to have my name anywhere close to those publications. And as we all know, I will most definitely run for food.
(…that was my pre-run dinner before my first half…. I was proving the pancake was as big as my face. Success.)
The San Diego race is on Saturday, November 7. That’s 3.1 miles through my very favorite city to run in, and in my favorite spot in said city to run (the Embarcadero, on the water). I haven’t run in SD since my glorious half marathon in March – aka my favorite half marathon thus far, besides the first one – and I’m stoked to get back down there.
It’s no secret that I love SD, so any excuse to go down and visit my favorite people in town is one I’ll take. But an excuse that comes filled with delicious snacks and wine and tied with a big running bow? Um, yes. Yes, please.
This year, the race’s theme is “Calories Burned. Calories Earned,” and a percent of funds from the race are going toward the American Diabetes Association. I actually have a personal rule where I’ll only run a 5K race (and pay a registration fee) if the race either somehow benefits my community in some way (like is connected to a nonprofit I believe is) or looks like it’ll be super amazing incredible sauce. How lucky that this is both!
To be clear, as an ambassador, my race fee has graciously been comped, for which I’m grateful. BUT, I also have a discount code for YOU!

Sooooo, who’s going to join me?! The weekend is also filled with a cocktail party on Friday night and a sweat session on Sunday…. and of course, all the amazing sponsors and brands that will be out during the the actual 5K (um, Quest Nutrition bars?! Kashi?! Cupcake Vineyards?! …and the list goes on).
I seriously can.not.wait.

Have a good one, loveys! xo
