First and foremost, thank you ALL for being so incredible supportive not only about my first video blog, but also regarding my insecurity.
Y’all are amazing and inspire me daily.
Okay, moving on.
Last week I had the opportunity to co-host the final Boston New Balance Girls Night Out event with my blog friend, Sherri of Fun Fit Flavor (her recap here). And while you know just how much I love me some New Balance, these events are a seriously the bomb dot com.
The theme was Staying Fit & Healthy While Traveling.
There ended up being about 100 ladies — a sold out event hosted at the Westin Copley in Downtown Boston.
Why did NB host it at the Westin you ask? Great question.
NB and Westin hotels have a partnership that is absolutely amazing. Regardless of which Westin you’re staying at you can partake in their ‘gear lending’ as well as their RunWESTIN programs.
Gear lending program
We’ve all been there. You arrive at your hotel and realize you’ve forgotten your, gulp, sneakers. You had full intentions of being healthy at this work conference but now feel down and out about your lack of kicks.
Ding! Stay at a Westin and your problems are solved.
NB has everything from sports bras to socks, crops and sneakers if you’ve left yours at home. For $5 you can rent whatever you need and return it when you’re done.
If you’re like me, you want to actually see the city you’re visiting — and if you can do so on foot, even better.
Whether you’re on vacation or traveling for work the RunWESTIN program allows you to take a guided run around town. The special Run Concierge team knows just where to go to give you the best views of the city … and a challenging workout.
At the NBGNO event, the girls had a choice between a 4(ish) mile run with me and the RunWestin Concierge team OR an indoor bootcamp with Sherri led by the RunWestin Concierge himself, Chris!
