Nike Women’s Half Marathon #RunnersLove Meet-Up

Next weekend is the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in Washington D.C.! To celebrate, my friends Meg and Kristy, who are the founders of the #RunnersLove group, are hosting a blogger meet-up! It is going to take place at Sprinkles Cupcakes in Georgetown at 10:45 AM. If you were unsure before, you can now rest easy knowing that cupcakes are absolutely an acceptable meal for brunch!

Also, Meg and Kristy are working with Punkee Love Headbands to have official #RunnersLove headbands created! The below photo is the first headband that was just recently released – if you would like to purchase one, they are $15 and you can get in contact with Kristy at her blog HERE!

I am SO excited for next weekend – not only do I get to run an amazing half marathon and earn a Tiffany’s necklace, but I get to finally meet so many people who, even though we only know each other through blogging, I already consider great friends!

QOTD: Have you been to a #RunnersLove Meet-up? Will you be attending next week’s?

    2. Lauren, I totally understand. With my knee discomfort, I haven't been running like I should be, but I have been doing the elliptical. I hope that is enough! :0)
