It’s Time to “Get Moving! Race & Relax”

Monday, April 5, 2010


I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new RunWifeyRun event with my BlogRollin’ partner, Christie. In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve kind of gotten into running a little bit. We’ll, it’s done wonders for my health, my weight, and even my sanity, ahem, (we all need a little release) so I decided I want to share the good feelings and benefits with you.

Introducing the inaugural Get Moving! Race & Relax event in Atlanta. Fifteen women will join forces and get moving by walking or running in the Virginia Highlands Summerfest 5K (3 miles) Road Race on Saturday, June 5, 2010. Afterwards, the ladies will indulge in a post-race celebratory brunch and enjoy other special treats. Created to inspire women to take care of themselves, Get Moving! focuses on the importance of physical exercise and making time for you. It’s the first event in our RunWifeyRun initiative – a WifeSavers series designed to help wives be the best that they can be.

Starting today participants will support each other via social media by tweeting, facebooking or blogging about their journey leading up to, during and after the event. They will receive the official Virginia Highlands Summerfest 5K race registration and race swag bag; a post-race celebratory brunch, a spa gift certificate; suggested training program/schedule and resource list; train to manage your pain with the Red Recovery Routine and a tart bottle of cherry juice courtesy of the Cherry Marketing Institute; a Get Moving! Race & Relax, Powered By Red race-day T-shirt sponsored by the Cherry Marketing Institute; a Get Moving! swag bag filled with indulgent goodies; special surprises; and most importantly they will get moving and hopefully continue to take care of themselves and their bodies.

I’m thrilled that several of my bloggy buddies have already signed on as VIP Movers and will be joining me for this journey – the fabulous Broke Socialite, Krystal at, and The Divine Miss Mommy. We’re also excited that the lovely Joan of All Trades (who is about to give birth any moment) and my sister, new mommy NikkiD13, are also signed on and ready to Get Moving! Fitness is much more fun when you’re surrounded by friends!

I’d like to extend a special thank you to the Cherry Marketing Institute for sponsoring part of this important event. Cherries have such a high level of disease-fighting antioxidants and are an excellent choice for pain relief and exercise recovery. They are sure to help us as we start exercising and Get Moving! I encourage you to learn more about cherries here and follow them on Twitter at @choosecherries.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to Get Moving! You can join us now by registering here. Hint, hint – there’s a discount if you are a WifeSavers VIP. You can also follow our journey on Twitter; we’ll be using the hashtags #Race&Relax and #RunWifeyRun.

Finally, I’d like to extend my appreciation to all of you who have been so supportive of my running adventures. Your encouragement and kind words have been extremely motivating and hope that in some way I can return some of that love to you!

Winks & Smiles,

OMG! This is wonderful! Congrats on doing something that is not only exciting, but a much-needed boost for all of use who want to get or stay fit! I'm such a punk about doing marathons, even if they say it's okay to just walk! I'm hesitant, not quite sure why, I'm doing GirlTrek this month, but that's about walking.

Anyhoo, I can still support from the sidelines, right? Maybe I'll pass you guys the cups of water... :)

Thanks, Execumama! And um, you CAN join us! It's 3 miles not a marathon and walking is definitely welcome!

Hope you'll sign on! What fun we will have ...

Winks & Smiles,

Another good website to use it the dailymile. As a runner, I love it. It's like social networking for athletes. It allows you to track your training and the training of your "friends."

I live in FL not Georgia so unfortunately I miss out on this. Only 15 women get to do this? When will you branch out a bit more South of you? ;o)

My best, Lynn
*this sounds like such a good time. Keep us in the loop.

Hi, I just started reading your blog about a month ago and I love it. I think you are an inspiration. I wish I still lived in Atlanta (I went to Spelman). I think it's great you are gathering your girlfriends to work on taking care of themselves. I started doing that a few weeks ago with my girlfriends and now I'm blogging about it. if you get time, check out our journey to change and becoming more healthy.

thanks for the inspiration...I hope one day I can be a runner...

See, you all make everyone else wish they lived in Atlanta too. You guys come up with really good ideas, and have a great time.

I wish we had something like this in Kansas City. Although I'm not a runner but the idea of staying fit, getting together with grilfriends and being the best wife I can be sounds amazing.

I wish I could! I wish I could! Last weekend of the school year... trying to figure out HOW to make it work. Might have to wait 'til next time. *sigh*
