Since the start of the new year a few of us here at AFCHQ have picked up running. Of course, part of the reason we picked up running is because we can always look cute, colorful, and stylish while running thanks to our new line of activewear. Have you seen it yet? It’s the best. We’re not marathon status yet, but have high hopes to enter a 5k, a 10k, and perhaps a half marathon by the end of the year. We’ve been doing some research on what races to enter and found some great ones right here in Florida! Here’s our top picks of races to enter in 2016 in Florida.
Color Fun Fest – South Florida & The Color Run Fort Lauderdale: Color runs have been around for a few years now, but the allure is still there. We’ve never participated in one of these (surprising, right?), but we think it would be the perfect place to don our Color Crush Activewear Set. The more color the better, right?
Hemingway 5K Sunset Run & Paddleboard Race 2016: Paddleboarding has made a big splash here in South Florida. Everyone is doing it! Did you happen to see this video of a paddleboarder running right into a shark? It’s worth the watch! It happened just south of us in Jupiter. Back to the race. In this race you can run, or paddleboard, or do both. Dress the part with our Indigo Batik Activewear Set, or if you’re just going the paddleboard route go with one of our swimsuits!
2016 Key West Halloween Half Marathon & 5K: We’re sure you’ve heard it before, but Halloween in Key West rivals any other top Halloween destination. Locals and visitors go all out for this spooky holiday. To gear up for the trick-or-treat-filled day runners will gather on October 23rd for a half marathon or 5k. We think the 5k sounds more our speed. But what to wear? Perhaps our Pineapple Activewear Set with some sort of pineapple headpiece to complete the look? We think that will be a winning costume.
Now that we have some races picked out, it’s time to train! Want to find races in your own state? This website is a great resource.
