Chicks Night by Under Armour and Stretch CHI

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a sponsored fun run at Fleet Feet (who doesn't like free stuff?!).  I honestly wasn't expecting much from this event as the advertisement made it seem like we would get a 10% coupon for showing up and perhaps a mini Clif bar after the run.  Boy was I surprised.

Under Armour represented themselves well with a full spread from Panera Bread, a raffle for an UA outfit and a PLINKO game where you are guaranteed to win something.  What?!

Spread from Panera Bread Company

The group went out for a run and was strongly encouraged to come back by 7:20pm so that we could start the stretching seminar by Stretch Chi.  I decided to hang with the 3-4 mile group since A) I have a long run planned for later in the week and B) I can't do more than 3.5 miles in 40 minutes.

It was an awesome run with a nice group of girls.  We set out on a 'brisk' pace and I made a promise to myself right then and there that I would maintain that pace and push through those miles.  I ended up running an average pace of 12:05 for those 3.3 miles!  I know that is slow for a many (and to my credit, I have definitely run a faster mile before) but I have not run an overall faster 3.3 miles without feeling fatigued at all.  Way to go body!

The game table

My winnings - a tumbler, stretch band, two hair ties and no-lines underwear

I certainly can't complain about the free offerings (the underwear is interesting but hey, why not give it a try) and will definitely be putting these items to use, especially the tumbler for my morning shakes!  

We promptly began our stretching seminar with a representative from Stretch Chi, pronounced like the word 'stretchy'.  She was very nice and had a lot of knowledge to share.  I have to say that I didn't have an 'ah-ha!' moments with these stretches but it was a great way to reinforce what I've been doing through my yoga practice.   

Sounds like an overall "win" of a day!
