Come Be a Fit Foodie with Me!

Yesterday an exciting e-mail popped up in my inbox:

For the second year in a row, I’ve been selected to be an ambassador for the Fit Foodie 5k!  I absolutely love the concept behind this race series, and am honored to have been chosen two years in a row to represent this race.  (Check out last year’s recap here.)  I’ll be running at this year’s race in Fairfax, VA on Saturday, May 21st.

Under the theme of “Calories Burned, Calories Earned,” participants will have the opportunity to participate in the ultimate celebration of food, fitness, and fun.  There are also some exciting new additions to this year’s race, including:

  • The opportunity to mix and mingle with elite athletes “Boston Bill” Rogers, four-time Boston Marathon and New York City Marathon Champion, and Caroline Rotich, winner of the 2015 Boston Marathon
  • An all- new John Hancock Vitality Village post-race celebration featuring fitness demonstrations from acclaimed talent, cooking demonstrations, and more
  • The option to register for the Fit Foodie Premium Package, which includes an official Fit Foodie participation tank, a $5 tax-deductible donation to the Fit Foodie Official Charity, and more

Once you cross the finish line of the race, you’ll be invited into the post-race village celebration, which will include food samples, cooking demonstrations, and mini-fitness classes.  Registration also includes two post race celebration drinks (for those age 21 and up).

    So torn on this one now that they’ve changed the date. It’s the same day as the Semper Fi 5k. I loved the whole fit foodie experience but didn’t actually enjoy the race part that much. And I love the Semper Fi race experience. I guess we’re luck to live in an area with so many good things to choose from!

  2. Congrats! I wish I lived near you so I could join in on the fun! I’ll have to live vicariously through my blogging friends!

  3. I’ll be running it this year – my mom her friend wanted to do it! I saw Colleens code this morning (just saw your post), but I’ll send yours to my mom’s friend 🙂

  4. Can’t seem to find this in the FAQ – can I Metro there? If I can Metro there, I may be in…

    That sounds like a really neat race. I live in Alabama so there is no way for me to participate. I’ll definitely be looking for race and food updates. 🙂

  7. How fun! I always got jealous when Salt would do this race 🙂 Looking forward to seeing pics!

  9. Looks like such a fun race, but my summer beginning in May is too chock full of travel and weddings. Someday!

  10. Pam says:

    Congratulations Kathryn. I know you loved this race last year and did a great job promoting it, so it was probably an easy decision for them to choose you again. I wish I lived closer to DC because it sounds like fun.

  11. That sounds like a fun race to participate in. I haven’t seen anything like it advertised here in Indy.

    I love the food after this race. I’m sad I can’t join you guys this year. Have fun!

  15. Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes says:

    Yay! I’m so excited for you!! I was so bummed when I couldn’t participate last year as an ambassador, but I had so much fun the year before that that I knew I had to apply again! See you there!
