Live Your Best Life, Right Now
Initially I started this blog after some friends urged me to turn my message board posts into something more permanent. My purpose is to share knowledge, promote health and wellness as a lifestyle (not a “diet”), and connect you with resources to live your best life–whatever that means to you–right now. Life is precious and short, and the time to do that crazy, wonderful, impossible thing is RIGHT NOW.
Women’s Health magazine selected me to continue on as an Action Hero! 2014 will be the third year of the Women’s Health “Run 10 Feed 10″ events, where people all across the country run 10k to raise funds for FEED. FEED partners with agencies that combat hunger, and the funds raised by “Run 10 Feed 10″ fight hunger in the United States. They also have a great school lunch initiative, since many children rely on the school lunch program. San Francisco! Save the date: Run 10 Feed 10 San Francisco is Sunday, October 26, 2014! Mark it on your calendar, and use code WHBAIN to save $5 on your registration. (There’s a contest here, please please please use my code!)
Other Run 10 Feed 10 events: New York City, September 21; Chicago, October 19; Minneapolis, September 13; Denver, September 27; Houston, September 27; Los Angeles, September 28; Atlanta, October 11; Boston, October 12; and Washington D.C., October 18. Code WHBAIN saves you $5 on ANY of these events!
If you don’t have an event near you, you can also sign up to run your own 10k–anywhere, anytime–and code WHBAIN will save you 10%. (The “run your own” option costs less than an event.)
Not interested in running the Run 10 Feed 10? You can volunteer to help out at the event, and while you’re at it why not donate to my fundraiser: https://www.crowdrise.com/run0feed10sanfrancisco/fundraiser/actionheroelizabethb Any amount would help. Last year we learned from FEED that on average, $40 can feed a family for a month via FEED’s partnerships.
As most runDisney runners, I’m looking forward to the upcoming registration for the 2015 Dopey Challenge! In between now and then, I’ll finish out the first half of 2014 with the Zooma half marathon in Napa Valley (my friend Kat is an ambassador–use code NAMB11 for 10% off your registration!). Twist my arm and I’m likely to sign up for more…
On the not-running side, I learned some amazing nutrition science at the SCW Mania San Francisco in March. I’m sure I’ll be sharing these, along with my thoughts on the Fitness magazine Blogger Meet and Tweet I was lucky enough to attend last fall and the Nike Women’s Half Marathon D.C. first blogger brunch! Hopefully the IDEA World Conference and related blogging conference will give me some fresh ideas for content as well.
But back to the running. My brother and Dad will join me to run across the Ambassador Bridge in October as part of the Detroit International Half Marathon, and I’ve just learned my law school classmate Jen wants to run with me too! I’m also really looking forward to revisiting some of the races I ran last year as inaugural races: the ultra-hilly Tiburon Half Marathon, and the verdant Bay-side Berkeley Half Marathon!
