I consider myself a pretty active person. I love trying new workouts and I try to workout at least 4 times a week. I was invited to attend the John Hancock hosts the Cooking Light & Health Magazine Fit Foodie Race Weekend in Fairfax, VA. Given that I live 10 minutes from where the race was held and the fact that I’ve never been a part of a 5K before, I said, why not?! I wanted to be a part of the action and see how calories were earned and burned at the three-day event! Despite the rain, there were still so many people in attendance! No rain could hold these marathoners down! Everyone was in great spirits and whenever I talked to any of the participants, they all were super excited about it all. I hung out in the John Hancock Vitality Village most of the time. This was the ultimate post-race experience that rewards a job well done and celebrates participants’ hard work through delicious and healthy experiences. As you could see in the photos below, there were so many great healthy and delicious vendors present to cheer on the participants and to share their own delicious treats. After all, fitness without good nutrition is not nearly as impactful on your health as when you combine the two!
