It’s Monday afternoon, and I am multitasking like a mad woman and dreaming of getting a Starbucks coffee. Ahhhhh…coffee…!
To say that the weekend wasn’t very restful would be a HUGE understatement. It was a whirlwind of expo set up, sales, tear down, inventory, and then a fabulous race filled with all of the sparkle a girl could ask for! So, yes, I’m a tired lady. But, it was totally worth it.
My weekend started with an early morning down at Cobo Hall in Detroit to finish setting up Sparkle.Pounce.’s first race expo booth!
It was a fun and successful day. We were thrilled to hear how many people saw Stephanie’s latest design (Run Great – Michigan) on Facebook and couldn’t wait to get their hands on it! Our hoodies sold out in all sizes except XS! Thanks for the love, Ladies! (And don’t worry, we’re still taking pre-orders on our Etsy site www.etsy.com/shop/sparklepounce until Tuesday night!)
Then, Sunday morning was the Detroit Women’s Half and 5K. This event is designed by women, for women. And it shows. These ladies know how to put on a race! They had every detail covered, from the super cute, fitted race tees, to the rhinestone embezzelled finisher’s medal, to the free manicures and massages. It was definitely an event worth going back to.
And the race itself was a blast. Sparkle.Pounce. was lucky to be given three Rock City Skirts to wear for the race, so we felt pretty sassy and confident out there!
And being surrounded by all women, many of which were first timers, was a wonderfully comfortable feeling! Women seem to know how to have a good time and be a lot less intimidating than men at races!
The weather threatened to put a damper on the day, but it ended up being a perfect morning for a run around a beautiful island with some amazing views of our beloved Detroit City. The race volunteers were awesome, there were quite a few spectators (which every runner LOVES!), and the course was well marked, flat, and easy to follow.
This is a race that Sparkle.Pounce. will definitely support in the future! Thank you to all of the ladies that joined our team. It was so fun to see some Sparkle.Pounce. gear out on the course!
