I like the beach.
I like running.
I like blogger friends.
(I also like Rainbow sandals and cannot wait until summer returns. But I digress.)
It’s a 24-hour, 200-mile relay race that starts in Wachusett, Mass. and ends in Westport, Mass. (Two town names that mean nothing to me, but I’m sure are lovely places where people use the word “wicked” a lot.)
You know you’ve become a runner when you read other bloggers’ posts about running in the middle of the night and sleeping in vans and you’re jealous. I am so freaking excited for this, and I’ve read every single one of these ladies’ recaps from nuun’s Hood to Coast team last year…
For work purposes! New Balance, one of my clients at work, is a sponsor of the race–and our team–which means that I am in the very interesting (and awesome) position of both working on this account and running on this team.
How many bananas can one girl eat in 24 hours?
I’ll be running with the lovely:
- Anne ofÂ Fannetastic Food
- Sarah ofÂ SarahFit
- Patricia ofÂ Run Foodie Run
- Elizabeth ofÂ On Tap for Today
- Ashley ofÂ A Healthy, Happier Bear
- Bridget ofÂ Yogurt and Berries
- Tina of Carrots ‘n’ Cake
- Gretchen ofÂ Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen!
- Monica ofÂ Run Eat Repeat
- Ali ofÂ Food Fitness Fashion
- Melissa ofÂ Fitness NYC
Together, the 12 of us will be Team Off Balance. Which I think suits us very well.
