You all know I’m obsessed with fitness and cats, right? (Well, at least cats.) But I like running (well…not as of late, but that’s due to being sick and extremely lazy) and working out (especially lifting weights and ANYTHING weight lifting that you do lying down is my favorite…I’m working out…and I’m lying down!).
My friend and fellow blogger Katie from Mom’s Little Running Buddy runs an event called Celebrate Fitness on March 9th of this year. She told us about it in the St Louis Bloggers Group I belong to and asked if anyone was interested in giving away a free entry. I jumped on the chance, because I thought some of you might be interested– There’s a race, but there’s so much MORE than just a race—there’s all kinds of other workouts you can do, and it would be a really fun event for families or group of friends!

I originally thought I’d be able to do it (I’d love to run the 10k with Chris! but it looks like I’m working that morning after all…) but I think you should all participate.
Have any readers done this event in the past?
