This past weekend, I had the privilege of attending the Runner’s World Half & Festival Weekend. FitFluential, Runner’s World, and ICON fitness invited 25 bloggers to the RW Half & Festival in Bethlehem, PA, in order to meet editors and running experts, run one (or more) of the races, and get some exposure out about the race and weekend.
I had no intentions of running a race so soon after my son was born, but I also knew that this was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up. My attending (and running one of the races) would be based on when my son was born – I would only attend if he was 4-5 weeks old – old enough to be out and about for a few days but young enough where he was still super portable and not really on any sort of schedule. Well, he cooperated and was born within the small window necessary for us to attend (it’s clearly a sign he wants to be a runner!).
When we first got to the hotel, we were given a welcome bag that had some awesome goodies: RW Big Book of Marathon & Half Marathon Training, a Running Skirt, Mediterranean Snacks, Swiftwick socks, Sweaty Bands, and The Stick.
