Instead I wanted to talk about this awesome opportunity I have been given. About a month ago, I received an email that I was chosen as an Ambassador for the Sweat Pink campaign through Fit Approach. The mission statement pretty much says it all: (and seriously blogger? that's the closest font color to pink that they have :( bummer)
We believe that kicking ass is best done in in pretty shoes. We've learned that real women sweat, and sweat hard. We know that assertiveness, strength, and ambition are the ultimate feminine qualities. We concede that sometimes it takes hours to get ready, but we're also no strangers to just rolling out of bed and going. We're convinced that we run faster in pink shoelaces. We believe in pushing ourselves, and we believe in giving ourselves a break, too. We're all about the rush of endorphins and the thrill of the challenge. We're all for looking great and feeling even better. We're committed to finding our best fit and making it stick.
How do we get there?
Thank you Alyse and Jamie (founders of Fit Approach) for admitting that women DO sweat! I know I've always heard that women "glisten". Sorry, but when I'm running 10 or more miles, I sweat, and sweat a LOT. I work hard, I sweat hard. Fact of running. If I'm not sweating, I must not be working hard enough! I also agree that it takes a lot of balancing to get it done. Some weeks I'm better at balancing than others, for sure. I'm still a work in progress!
Being a SPA (sweat pink ambassador) means that I will help and encourage others in their fitness and healthy lifestyle goals. Also, there is a whole community of like minded ladies to help, encourage and inspire me when I need it.
Last week, I received these in the mail. The tank top is awesome. In fact, I'm wearing it now. With a hoodie. Fall has come early to Ohio. <sigh> And several pairs of pink shoelaces. I'm trying to figure out which of my three pairs of shoes will be lucky enough to have pink laces...I'm thinking my newest pair. One pair is reserved for Jamie, she is the biggest pink wearer I know! Now, if Kate (I know I've talked about Jamie and Kate a lot, they are my best running friends so they automatically get pink laces if they want them) wants a pair, that will leave me with two more to give away. If there is enough interest from you all on having your own sweat pink shoelaces, I will figure out how to host my first giveaway.
Leave a comment if you would like your own pink shoelaces!
