When I went to the race page to sign up, I saw they were looking for Ambassadors. I read what they were looking for and thought I might be a good fit. I sent an email in with my weight loss story and got an email back a few days later saying I was "exactly what they were looking for in an Ambassador." Yay!
I was compensated with a race entry & a free tutu to help publicize the event. All of the opinions in this post are my own.
So I spent the last 4 months

Before our 5K they had the little princess dash. A few of my friends' daughters ran in this race. It was really cute to see all the little girls running. Most of them were decked out in tutus. A few were dressed to match their moms. My favorite runner (other than my friends' kids) was the baby who was just learned to walk. Her Mom helped her walk the whole distance. It was a precious moment.
When the little princesses had all crossed the finish line, it was time for us to line up for our race. My team headed to the start line together & we were off. We split up a little since some of the ladies were going faster than others. I was nursing a knee injury and decided to hang back and stay with 3 friends who were all completing their first ever race.
