Run Like a Diva!

Our thoughts are with everyone in the path of Hurricane Joaquin, and we wish the best for them. With a little weather luck the storm will blow away from the East Coast of the U.S. and out to sea.

Rain or no rain, illumiNITE will be in Long Island this weekend for the Divas half marathon and 5K. This fun event celebrates all things fabulous, and illumiNITE is happily along for the ride.

illumiNITE is a Diva-free workplace, so a weekend of fancy is a nice change of pace. Imagine a wave of pink tutus rolling down the street–that’s what you’ll find at the Diva race. Participants receive lots of goodies, including a personalized bib (no more writing your name on a running shirt – we love it), a feather boa and tiara station (seriously!), roses and Champaign at the finish line (delivered by scantily-clad firefighters), and a bright, shiny finishers medal with room for your own photo. So fun!

Something else we like: The Long Island Divas race raises money for Hewlett House, which supports women with breast cancer and their families. That’s fabulous too!

illumiNITE will be at the 2-day Health & Fitness Boutique (no average Expo for these ladies), on Friday, October 2nd from 4pm-7pm, and Saturday, October 3rd from 9am -5pm. As always, we’d love to meet you. Stop by our booth and check out our fall and winter gear. Mention this blog post and win a free prize.
