I know I don’t have much on here yet, but if you noticed in my race calendar, I am headed to Akron in September to run the Akron Marathon Team Relay. I am running the relay with some amazing twitter friends: Lauren, Jeff, Sarah and Steff. From the beginning, our team, Four Princess and a Frog, has been very active with them on twitter. It only seemed fitting since Team Four Princess and a Frog was created from twitter (don’t worry, there will be a full blog post on how the team came about and more importantly about my amazing teammates!).
During the Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend, the team visited their booth at the expo. It was here that we found out we were kinda famous amongst the Akron Marathon staff members. Andrew, who runs social media for Akron Marathon, left us #RunAkron stickers!!
So, how does this tie in with Panera? Andrew reached out to the Princesses and asked us if we were interested in being a part of the partnership between Akron Marathon and Panera Bread as an official Team Panera Blogger. Without hesitation we jumped on this opportunity! To help us through our training, they even set up a training program & menu for the Akron Team Panera bloggers.
Over the next few weeks, you’ll see more posts about my training for Akron and how I will be doing lots of refueling at Panera! The Princesses will also be sporting an awesome Team Panera shirt on race day! Between that and the sparkly skirt they are making me wear, I am confident you’ll be able to pick us out from the crowd!
Huge thank you to Andrew & the Akron Marathon Staff and Panera Bread for this amazing opportunity to be about of Team Panera!
Next time I go to Panera, what is your favorite Panera pick that I should try?
