I have been chosen to be the 2014 Social Runner for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Race. I am so excited! It’s such a great opportunity. I along with fellow Social Runner Doug Casaro have been selected to use social media to tell all of you about our training and the race. I LOVE THIS RACE!! It’s my favorite that I have run. The atmosphere is electric, the scenery is beautiful and the people are amazing. (Click for my 2013 recap)
I went to the Kickoff on Friday night and had a blast. I finally got to meet Doug in person, and of course, he’s AWESOME!! The Kickoff party was so much fun. I got to meet a lot of runners and the organizers of the race. There was a wine pull where you spend $25 the (proceeds are donated to the Children’s Miracle Network). I pulled a bottle worth $125!! Now that’s what I call a return on an investment. 🙂
This is a lottery race and the lottery opens in 16 days. My suggestion to all of you is ENTER THE LOTTERY! Yes, I’m yelling because I want to see you there. It has everything, great motivating spectators, historical monuments, the Potomac River and of course Cherry Blossoms. I know you will love it!
