Ok so on to our next exciting news announcement!!!
We posted a blog about Fleet Feet on May 19th (Two Meatballs: If the Shoe Fits…Buy It!) bc we work three doors down and were both in desperate need of new shoes for our new life!
Fleet Feet always seemed kind of intimidating bc we were the furthest thing from runners…but you guys…WE HAD THE BEST EXPERIENCE! Tom and Katie took such good care of us.
And I mean look how far we’ve come!!!! We look totally different!
We actually recreated all of these past shots for fun! We subbed in Ryan bc Tom has left for a life of fame!!!
We reached out to their marketing guru, Jacob and he cross promoted our blog. And a relationship was born. So last week after we got the great news about Bill Leslie and our start to fame…Jacob reached out and offered us an opportunity to partner up for a program they are launching in the new year called Ton of Fun!
We will be participating as well as guest blogging and possible motivational speaking!? He sent me an email of bullet points of their program and the link to sign up:
– Starts January 3rd at Fleet Feet Raleigh
– 12 week challenge
– Goal is for Raleigh to lose 2,000 pounds total and have fun doing it
– Participants get: weekly weigh-ins, e-Newsletter, closed Facebook group with access to our coaches, group workout opportunities, tips on nutrition and injury prevention, fun ideas to get moving around Raleigh, prizes, & exclusive content from the Meatballs!
– Costs $50, but you earn it back in gift certificates if you come in for eight of the weekly weigh-ins and hit goals for weight loss. Lose 2% after eight weigh-ins = $25. Lose 5% by the end = another $25.
– Fleet Feet also has running and walking programs that can complement the Ton of Fun Challenge. See www.fleetfeetraleigh.com/training for details.
