Something I talk about a lot is my love of music and dance. I sing and dance everywhere I can – at work, at home, on the treadmill watching Glee… I also love EDM. Sometimes it gets a bad rap, but I had one of the best times of my life at the Electric Forest festival back home – so I was SUPER excited to find out about Electric Run: Electric Run is the Nation’s Premier Nighttime 5k run/walk experience, where the participants are an integrated part of the show. Featuring immersive “Lands” of light and sound that transport the participant into an electric wonderland, Electric Run promises to transport the mind, body and soul to a new world in a healthy and drug-free way. Participants are encouraged to join in on the art by lighting up with glow sticks, LEDs and anything else their imagination can conjure up. It’s like two of my loves met and had a baby and I get to dress up in anything that glows, listen to awesome music, and run through crazy worlds! Check out the video:
Unlike a lot of music festivals, Electric Run’s focus is on health and celebration which is perfect for me since part of my running philosophy is that it should be a joyful, celebratory experience! (I have no idea who I have become – a year ago I HATED running!) Walkers are welcomed and encouraged at these events, as well as strollers and kids. They offer a group discount for teams of 4 or more, so round up your friends, family, co-workers, or the person you compete against on the treadmill every day and sign up together!
I seriously can’t wait. Come run in Virginia Beach with me on October 11 and use the code “DESILOVE” at checkout to save 10% on your registration!
