Our first Get Moving! Race & Relax event took place this past Saturday and I’m thrilled to say it was a huge success! Eighteen lovely ladies joined forces to run in the Virginia Highlands Summerfest 5K then celebrated in style at a scrumptious brunch. To keep things simple, I split my recap in half. You can read about Part 1 – Race – here.
Part 2 – Relax
Needless to say we had no problem slipping into “relax” mode after the race. Truthfully, the relax part of the event was what many of the participants were looking forward to! Once we all successfully crossed the finish line we headed over to Einstein’s in Mid-town where they were waiting to serve us a scrumptious brunch compliments of Walt Disney World Resort. The ladies had their choice of several entrees varying from Malted Banana Pancakes to the Ixtapa Scramble (scrambled eggs, chorizo sausage, tomato, red onion, jalapeno pepper, cheese, cilantro and salsa verde) to an Angus Burger. Everyone was also treated to one specialty drink to celebrate the occasion. Thumbs up to their Grilled Pineapple Sangria! I’m just sayin’.
During brunch we mixed, mingled and enjoyed the moment. We also enjoyed our fabulous swag bags sponsored by Wine Sisterhood. Each beauty received a beautiful canvas tote filled with goodies from Pampered By Adrienne, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, some other fabulous treats and of course the coveted spa gift certificates courtesy of Walt Disney World Resort.
The ladies were excited to walk in and receive their bags but they were also thrilled to receive these …
We thought it would be the perfect touch to acknowledge the ladies’ wonderful accomplishments – and we were thrilled that they were thrilled to get them.
Here are more pics from brunch:
Again, I’d like to thank our wonderful sponsors - The Cherry Marketing Institute, Walt Disney World Resort, Wine Sisterhood and Pampered By Adrienne. A huge thank you to them, to Maria Bailey from BSM Media who was instrumental in helping to making this event happen, and to Corey from Econopix for documenting our special day with photos!
Looking forward to the next one …
