Adidas x Refinery29 'Greater Every Run' event

When you're asked by adidas if you want to lead a 3 mile run for an adidas Running x Refinery29 event, what do you say? Uhh...YES!!

To celebrate the UltraBOOSTx, adidas and Refinery29 joined forces to throw an epic block party in Santa Monica that included everything from trial UBx runs, performances by treadmill dancers, refreshments and tunes by Lola Langusta. 

My adi girls: Mellie, Meagan, and Remi

Having injured my ankle earlier in the week, I was pretty bummed I wouldn't be able to fully lead the entire run with Mellie. I had already decided I was going to take it easy and just cheer everyone on, but once arriving at the event and watching Remi, Meagan, and the entire crew take off on their 1 mile run, it motivated me to give running a try for the first time after my injury and it went AMAZING! I ran at a super easy pace for about a mile just to test out how my ankle would be for the LA marathon. (LAM, I'M COMING FOR YOU!)

It was so great seeing many familiar faces and meeting new ones! I appreciate everyone for coming out and support especially to my sister Lindsay, brother in law Raymond and baby niece Raelynn Penny!

Thank you adidas and Refinery29 for the opportunity! Still crazy to me that I get to be a part of events like this because of my passion for running! Can't wait to break a sweat with everyone again!
