With our first Get Moving! Race & Relax event less than two weeks away, we thought it would be wonderful to highlight some of the lovely participants who will be running or walking and celebrating their accomplishments with us on June 5.
So without further ado our first Race & Relax beauty is Shannon Pierce. Shannon, also know as Shay Shay, blogs at Losing Fat and Winning in Life and shared a few words with us about why she joined the Race & Relax crew.
“I am so excited about Race & Relax! I use to be a self-proclaimed “non-runner,” but decided to challenge myself in 2009 to run the ING Half Marathon. While I’m not sure I’ll ever do a half marathon again (brutal for Shay Shay, but I can check it off my fitness list-yeah!), I have developed a love for the shorter 5K races. I’ve challenged myself to do at least one 5K a month. I love 5Ks because I can usually find a few girlfriends to do them with me (not so with half-marathons!). When I heard about Race & Relax I just had to register! This is the perfect event for Shay Shay: 5K (right distance), Brunch (I LOVE Brunch!), Relaxation (who doesn’t like to relax?), and hanging with friends and meeting new ones. SWEET!”
Thanks, Shannon! We’re so glad to have you and, most importantly, we’re glad that you are moving!
Race & Relax has several wonderful sponsors including The Cherry Marketing Institute, Walt Disney World Resort, The Wine Sisterhood and Pampered By Adrienne. You can learn more about Get Moving! Race & Relax here.
