One EPIC #Fitfluential Weekend!!

Okay so have you guys heard the news?!?! 
The one and only Pavement Runner is coming to Canada!!


I have lured him here with talks of Tim Horton's, promises of Doughnuts, and plans to run the Goodlife Toronto Marathon together.

If you read Brian's Blog (and you should) then you already know why I love this guy. Pavey and I have become fast friends all thanks to our mutual love of Running, Fitfluential, and the blog-o-sphere. And I am super excited to finally get the chance to run with one of my favourite online training buddies!

Needless to say we have been chatting about this Fabulous Fitfluential Adventure for a while. The original plan was to run the Marathon together. Obviously that plan was before surgery #6. So instead, Brian will still running the full and I will be making my triumph post-op return to distance with the half instead. (<--- possibly in a tu-tu, because why not?!) And I have recruited some other Canadian Fitfluential Friends to run the 5km as well ( Kierston and SuperFit, Robyn, Morgan, and Jess just to name a few)

And with the help of social media this Race Weekend is quickly appears to be turning into one...
EPIC CANADIAN FITFLUENTIAL WEEKEND!

And the perfect excuse to make all of our "online friends" "in real life friends" with one big Pre-Race blogger/social media Meet-Up! Everybody is welcome! Come Run with Us! Come Eat with Us! Its gonna be awesome! So if you are local or plan to be in Toronto for the race come Carb-o-load with us!

When: Saturday May 4th @ 5pm

We will also be hanging out at the Pre-Race Expo before hand on Saturday as well. I will be making a reservation just to make sure they have enough space for all of us. So please RSVP to the Facebook Event for the dinner! (<---just follow the link to join the fun)

Can't wait to see you all there!
Love your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
Krysten

    1. There will be fancy poses of yoga in public places in your honor. By fancy, I mean Krysten doing a correct pose while I stand in the background making up my own poses: "upward squirrel sitting in warrior tree."

  8. Thanks for the love Krysten... it's going to be an epic weekend indeed and I'm looking forward to meeting everybody, especially your pooch. We are sneaking him in somebody's purse, right? We could always hide him in Superfit's shirt and pretend it's a giant bicep. DONE!

  23. That is going to be completely epic! Too bad I am so far from Canada. Have a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sounds like it'd be a fun time!! I'll be running through the Redwoods on May 5th so no can do for me. That and my passport expired so I don't think Canada would have me. Or maybe the US won't let me back in. I have to get on top of that.

  25. Is Brian coming solo or with family? The reason I ask is whether the Spaghetti Dinner would be with or without kids (I was 8 years old the last time I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory). With Kids makes it easier for me to come, but I might be able to work around that.

  26. How totally awesome! Wish I could come, but May is super busy. Have a great time!

  27. Hey Krysten, my pals Derek and Tammy (@RawkinD and @Rawkin_T) and I will join you guys for supper if there's room ! This is mine and Tammy's 1st marathon and I am in full-on freak out mode going into our longest training run this weekend. Juuuuust trying to wrap my mind around the distance. :)

  28. So freaking cool. Perhaps the only day I will ever wish to be Canadian (buurrr.... too cold).

  30. Yay - a half marathon in a tutu is SO much fun - you're going to have a blast!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Can't make the dinner, but hope to meet you at the expo. Sounds like a super-fun weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Right, I will try to make dinner. I'm working the expo at the Team Running Free booth from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm so if you're there then, stop by and say HI!

  33. If you haven't already, please count me in. I'll be flying solo, though, so I can have conversations more sophisticated than "STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR FOOD!"
