Refinery29 X adidas Running: Greater Every Run Event in Santa Monica

Wow, has it really been almost two weeks since this event?  Time has been flying by way too quickly lately.   I'm in week 5 in my second yoga teacher training, and lately it feels like I haven't had enough time for anything!

Anywho! Two weeks ago I was given the honor of leading the 3 mile run for the Refinery 29 X adidas Running event on Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.  Even though I had been to many, many running events, this was the first time I was leading and I was both excited and nervous.

The event was so much fun!  There were treadmill dancers that were so impressive (haha I can barely just do the minimum on the treadmill -- run!).

Attendees got to try on the Ultraboost X (which I love btw, see my review here).  It would have been nice if attendees got to take them for a run during the event, just to see how amazing they really are.

Meagan and Remi led the 1 and 2 mile runs.  I love how beginner friendly the event was.  Many of the girls I talked to said they were running their first mile.

Diana and I led the 3 miler.  Diana wanted to rest her recovering ankle for LA Marathon, so I became a little more nervous knowing I'd be taking the front.

But omg it was so much fun!  Three miles go by so much quicker when you're running with friends (and new friends!).  And the best part?  I had a few people tell me how they hadn't run 3 miles in awhile and really appreciated my encouragement during the run.

After the run, everyone got to cool down with juices from Juice Served Here.

Hope to lead some more runs in the future!
