Food + Running? Sign me up! Want me to be an ambassador? Sure!
Some of you may remember that I was an ambassador for the Fit Foodie 5K last year along with some of other awesome DC area bloggers.
We had an amazing time at the Friday night event.
I ran a slow “just get ‘er done” 5k. And then nibbled my way through the after party.
And I got my rear kicked at a Boot Camp that took me way outside my comfort zone, followed by an awesome brunch.
Now it’s time to do it again!
So, what is the Fit Foodie weekend?
Fit Foodie is a weekend put on by Cooking Light and Health to combine a healthy lifestyle and delicious culinary experiences. Like I said, running plus yoga plus good food. What could be better?
Like last year, the event is made up of three events:
- Friday night is a VIP cocktail party with food from celebrity chefs. Last year the food was AMAZING! We all wanted to spirit away some of the dishes in our purses.
- Saturday is the actual 5K. Not only do you get the chance to run off a few calories, you also get the chance to add back a few. The tastes last year far surpassed the bananas and water you usually get at the end of a race!
- Sunday is a sweat session with Tracy Andersson, followed by a yummy brunch.
Details you need to know: All events occur at Mosaic District from June 19-21! Register here.

You all looked like you had such a blast last year. I’m bummed to miss it again this year but I will be in Hawaii (so not that bummed 🙂 )
Yeah, you have such a hard life. ;o)
YAY! looking forward to this event with you all this year. Looks fun and yummy 🙂 can’t wait!
It’ll be awesome to see you again!
I wish I was in the area! We don’t have any food-themed races here… 🙁 I wish we did, I’d run it for sure!
It’s a fun one for sure.
Wish I could join you!! Looks like fun!
Come visit! You know you want to visit DC…
So fun! I wish some of these things were closer to me!
There are benefits to living in a major metro area… (There are also negatives, but definitely some positives.)
I wish this would come to NYC. It looks so much fun!
Come down! DC is not that far. ;o)
I’m so excited to be joining you ladies this year! See you there!

Very cool! It should be a lot of fun (and the food is awesome!)
So so so bummed I’m missing this this year! I hope you guys have a great time again!!
I’m sad that our schedules have not aligned at all this year. We need to get together soon!
I wish I lived closer – this looks awesome! I do want to go to more fitness related conferences or events this year so I’ll have to see what is in my area in the coming months.
It was a ton of fun last year and the food was awesome!
Looks like an awesome event. I have seen it advertised but it unfortunately nowhere near where I live! Maybe I will get a chance to participate someday.
What a fun event!! Thanks for sharing:)
Wishing I was closer! This event would be right up my ally! I am a total foodie and throw in some running and amazing running friends and I am a happy camper!
