I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be participating in the first ever nonstop running relay, The United Relay of America, a race that aims to inspire, empower and connect people across the nation.
Runners who want to make a difference for communities across the globe can sign up to run a portion of this incredible relay – with runners starting in Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles – running day and night across the country – eventually all meeting up in New York City, carrying three batons over 10,000 miles in three unbroken chains of runners.
I mean I’ve done a handful of Ragnar style relays…but this is on another level..I mean, just whoa…right?
I don’t know about y’all but I’m pretty darn excited to be a part of this!
In fact, I’m so excited that I went ahead and signed up to be a part of the start line party in Seattle on Wednesday, April 27 at 6pm (in Seward Park).
I’ll be driving up with a car full of stinky Sweat Pink and Flex & Flow peeps (and my even stinkier puppy) to participate in the 5K start of the United Relay on Wednesday, April 27 at 6pm (in Seward Park). Of course we’ll all be sporting a pair of Aftershokz headphones (which I cannot wait to try!) and Sweat Pink trucker hats (so you can easily spot us out there…duh!).
If you want to join in on the action, check out the map to find a route near you and get registered.
Plus, if you register that just means you’ll be entered in for a chance to meet Alicia Keys! Say whhhaattt?!?! Yep. You heard right. By joining the United Relay of America, you (and a +1) will be added to the list for a chance to hang with Alicia in NYC. Oh, and you’ll be changing lives across the world too!
And don’t forget to check out Aftershokz – the makers of safer headphones for smarter runners. Aftershokz uses bone conduction (uh…what now?) – meaning they are placed on your cheeks rather than inside your ears to allow you to hear music, take a phone call, and sweat to your heart’s content (ie they are sweat resistant), while still providing you with the freedom to HEAR your surroundings. Hello, safety….! Hello awesome!
