2012 Shamrock Shuffle Expo & updates

The Shamrock Shuffle is tomorrow! Training has gone well, and I’m excited to finish my first official race since I jacked up my foot in the RNR Chicago half marathon last July. I spent Friday afternoon in the Fleet Feet Chicago Women’s Half Marathon booth at the Shamrock Shuffle expo at Navy Pier. A few of the ladies in the marketing campaign for the race also worked the booth, talking to people about the race and passing out flyers. I’m a sucker for expos and trade shows in general, so I had a lot of fun pumping up the race.
After the expo, Black Girls RUN! Chicago held its first meet-up for 2012 at Lucky Strike Lanes. It’s always nice seeing familiar faces and meeting new people from the run group. Many in the group are running the Shamrock Shuffle as well, so I’m sure I’ll be meeting more people tomorrow!
In other fun news, I attended EDEN BodyWorks’ Brunch with EDEN last weekend to celebrate the launch of their new JojOba Monoi natural hair care line. There were so many awesome media mavens in attendance, Afrobella, MHE Magazine, and The Nappturalite Radio Show were just a handful. I love using EDEN’s Peppermint Tea Tree line on my hair now, so I couldn’t wait to find out about their latest product offering, and nosh on french toast and mimosas, of course. Jump over to my Examiner.com page to learn more about EDEN BodyWorks and to view the whole slideshow of pictures from the event.
