I have recently discovered the website activeambassadors.com where active people have the opportunity to receive free racing gear and other products from their favorite brands, just by being active and social!
I am excited to say that I have just been selected to join the Mich Ultra Active Ambassadors Team! It is a great way to keep motivated and run races in your community while meeting other people with similar interests in your area!
When I saw that Mich Ultra had a team I knew that was the one I wanted to join! It is my favorite beer, and I love their advertising message geared toward an active lifestyle! I thought it would be the perfect group for me! I had already signed up for a race to participate in, so I couldn’t wait for my box of goodies to come from Mich Ultra!
My first event to sport my new gear was the 13th Annual Miracle Miles in Downtown Orlando.
I had run it last year and was looking forward to it again to see if I could beat my time! I love a good challenge!
(This was the race that I ran with my friend Nicole and our boyfriends painted their faces as cows to go with the sponsor’s, Chik-fil-a, theme!) You can read about my experience here.
This year it was sponsored by Panera and I ran it by myself. It was a lot more packed this year!
I got a lot of compliments of my shirt and it seemed almost everyone was a Mich Ultra fan that I talked to! Too bad the race was early in the morning or I bet everyone would have enjoyed a Mich Ultra at the end of the race like they do at the 13.1 series that Mich Ultra events (I gotta do one of those next!! I am thinking Gasparilla?)
The route we ran was different from last year, but I enjoyed it because we actually got to run through the heart of Downtown Orlando! I felt great during the majority of the race, but towards the end, it was starting to get very hot and I didn’t know if I could finish strong!
I kept running, though, and ended up beating my score from last year by 13 minutes! Sounds good to me, I will take it!
I am looking forward to my next race and meeting up with other Mich Ultra Team Members there! I will be sure to let you know when that is!
