Runner's World Headquarters Take 2: The Blogger Event

I am so excited to announce that I was invited ( along with a select number of other bloggers) to attend the Runner's World Blogger event this weekend at the Runner's World Headquarters!  I am leaving today( Thursday) and Runner's World has a jam packed schedule for us as soon as we all arrive. 

We will be meeting at the Marriot ( where we will be staying for the weekend) and then we will be shuttled to the Runner's World Head Quarters for a meet and greet. I will get to take another tour of the head quarters and then RW will be hosting a barbecue!

On Friday we will be starting our day very early. We need to be on the blogger bus at 7:15!  We will be meeting with running author Budd Coates and will be seeing demonstrations. After that we get to do a shake-out run with Bart Yasso and then finally have some breakfast!

After breakfast, more demonstrations, which I won't give too much info about now, but I am really excited about them!

And then what we all wait for, LUNCH!  I can honestly say I am really looking forward to this part, not just because I like to eat, but because everything on our lunch menu is coming from the Runner's World Cookbook!
 Even on the itinerary I was given it tells me what the meal will be and what page of the cookbook I can find it on. Very cool.  I can't wait to try the Caprese Farro Salad pg 82-83.  If you haven't already read my post on the Runner's World Cookbook, you can check it out here.

After lunch we have a meet and greet with Olympic gold medalist Summer Sanders, another demonstration, and then it's off to the expo!
This is Lacey and Summer at the Boston Marathon expo this year. Friday I will get my chance to meet her too!
