You Can’t Spell Brunch, without RUN + Giveaway

One of my favorite things about Seattle is the amazing run community. The coolest thing about our running community (besides our killer run locations) is the fact that they know exactly what gets people pumped up. And that happens to be FOOD, drinks, and swag! I mean running too, but doesn’t a run just feel so much easier if you get goodies at the end?! I think so too! Seattle is well-rounded, not only are we stylish, outdoorsy, and eco friendly, but we love us some foooooood! And our foodie community is as diverse as our trails. I actually heard about this awesome race last year, that brings both running and brunch together, The Brunch Run. I wasn’t able to attend, but happily this year I am!

It is awesome when two of my loves merge {fitness and food} and a beautiful thing comes out of it. I am excited to partner with Seattle Magazine in bringing you some details and a GIVEAWAY !!!

The concept for this run is kind of perfect right? I often hear a lot of people say they workout so they can eat ALL THE FOOD. I think they are on to something. I actually, happen to be one of those, because food is fuel. If you know me, you know I love to play in the kitchen all day making delicious and pretty food. Though, I have to be honest, I have a huge love of cuisine made by professionals. Pro’s making food intrigue me and I am a sucker for a well plated thoughtfully orchestrated bite. At the Seattle Magazine’s Brunch Run there will be 15+restaurants, some of Seattle’s finest brunch spots offering plenty of post-race carbs and protein.


 Here in foodie Seattle bRUNchin’ is the cardio at Seattle Magazine’s 3rd annual Brunch  Run 5k. Lace up your sneaks, and get ready to work up an appetite.

The race course is super special to me, it is the location of my first Washington race which happens to be the first ever 5k I walked. If you haven’t run at Magnuson before it is all terrain. There is plenty of space for strollers, your four-legged running buddy, and families. It is a flat course, may be a great place to try to PR.

For you boozy runners indulge in bloody marys, mimosas, beer, and  boozy brunch gardens
