A handful of bloggers, vloggers, personal trainers, fitness enthusiasts and I were invited to the Nike launch of We Run London. I’ve always thought that running and champagne go hand in hand and evidently Nike believe in my philosophy too because the champagne flowed as freely as water, as we discussed the 10km race.
The Nike Women’s Race Series encourages women to run together to achieve their running goals and races are taking part all over the world. I am excited to be taking part in the 10km race that is happening in London on 21st June because London is perfect for distance running. The routes are flat and the capital looks so beautiful when the sun is shining.
I’m a middle distance runner and I run both the 5km and 10km but I have never done a competitive race before. Distance running can get a bit lonely so I love that Nike are encouraging us to run the race with a crew, to help motivate each other and make the run a little bit more enjoyable.
At the We Run London launch, I was able to catch up with bloggers who I speak to regularly on social media and finally meet the lovely Lucy Mountain. We both grew up in Nottingham, have lots of mutual friends and have spoken for years but we have never actually met, until now.
There was a glam squad at the event, ready to do everyone’s hair and makeup which came as a sigh of relief as the rain had destroyed my hair and I arrived at the event looking like I had just completed a 10km.
We snacked on chicken salads, chocolate orange truffles and we had the opportunity to take a photo with our crew and get our names printed on the back of our T-shirts.
Nike gave us goodie bags which contained selfie-sticks, nutritional tips and information, and a seven day meal plan.
I haven’t done a 10km run since November because the 5km and I have rekindled our love but I will document my training on here and keep you up to date with the Crew Love antics!
You and your crew can register to join We Run London here but be warned, I am going to make sure that Crew Love crosses the finish line first and in record breaking time!
