Guess what? It’s a race weekend! As a Women Run the D Blog Ambassador I will be at The American Home Fitness Detroit Women’s Half Marathon and 5k! And I can not wait!
The weekend officially kicks off with the Renewal by Andersen Expotique on Saturday at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center from 10am-4pm. I will be hanging out at the bib look up / information station from 10am-1:30pm so make sure your stop by and say hello. After picking up your packet and visiting with me, there will be tons of other things for you to do at the Expotique.
Visit vendors such as Brooks, NuStep, Hanson’s Running Shop, Fellow Flowers, Athleta, Tri-Covery, and more… even our own Women Run the D Boutique! Paint and Pour, which claims to offer the most creative night on the town, will be bringing that creativity to our Expotique to teach you to paint! You’ll be able to take home your very own commemorative American Home Fitness Detroit Women’s Half Marathon and 5K painting or hand-painted wine glass. For a different type of paint, get your nail polish changed… or get your hair braided or enjoy a hand or chair massage, all compliments of Pamper Me Valet. Our friends at Tri-Covery will also be on hand to help you stretch!
An added bonus of picking up your packet at the Expotique is that you with get an Athleta goodie bag and you will be entered to win an awesome workout outfit from Athleta!
Later on in the evening there is a Be Bold PJ Party from 7:30pm-8:30pm also at the Detroit Marriott. The Be Bold PJ party is a complimentary Pilates/yoga/stretching class to help you get ready for the American Home Fitness Detroit Women’s Half Marathon & 5K! Click here to sign up for the Be Bold PJ Party.
Race day is on Sunday at Belle Isle which is a Michigan State Park. As such you must have a Recreation Passport for entry or you can purchase one when you arrive. The Half Marathon starts at 8am and the 5k starts at 8:15am.
Immediately following the race you can partake in the post race party which will feature water from my friends at Absopure, wraps with Flaout Bread, protein shakes by Core Power, fresh fruit from Door-to-Door Organics and more!
