Fit Approach spent this past weekend rooting on the Mermaids during their runs at Quarry Lakes Rec Area in Fremont, Ca. It was a beautiful (and hot!) day at the races, and so many strong women came out to play! There were numerous runs ranging from a 5k to an 18 miler, and all the women athletes were super impressive running in that early morning heat.
We had a mini Sweat Pink meet-up with the Fit Approach team and some local Sweat Pink Ambassadors. I got to meet Maren, the blogger behind Maren’s Morsels and a Sweat Pink Ambassador, who helped me pass out tons of pink laces! She rocked it all day in her Sweat Pink tank and big smile, spreading the Sweat Pink love all over the Mermaid run.
Another bonus was meeting Sweat Pink Ambassador Ashley McKenna, who ran the race in full Sweat Pink gear – Sweating Pink from head to laces. She was too cool!! And she kicked butt by finishing 17th overall! Congrats, Ashley!
It was so great to meet these Sweat Pink Ambassadors off the blog and in the fitness real-world!
So many families came out to sweat together and encourage each other, it was just too cute! There were a ton of mom and daughter teams celebrating Mother’s Day with a run – such an awesome way to spend time with the fam. All the mother-daughter teams were so inspiring, they motivated me to take my mom on a Mother’s Day hike after the race!
What a beautiful sunny and sweaty weekend! What did you do for your mom on Sunday?
