I’m so excited to be heading to the Black Girls Run Preserve the Sexy tour presented by Dark and Lovely! I’ll be at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown for this event on Saturday, June 7th from 9 am to 12 pm. You all know how hard I’ve been working to get fit and be healthy and, for Black women, our hair can be a hindrance when working out regularly. Dark & Lovely has teamed up with Black Girls Run to share information, tips and product suggestions on how to preserve the sexy while working out, because as they say two things will never go out of style – being healthy and being sexy!
The Black Girls RUN! Preserve the Sexy Tour presented by Dark and Lovely is a conference open to runners of all levels, from beginners (and those thinking about beginning) to veterans. The tour features fun, informative sessions including coaching on running anatomy and form from experts, hair styling tips and tricks from Dark & Lovely’s Director of Education Mezei Jefferson (and of course yours truly), a hair chat session and concludes with a celebratory fitness party! Dark & Lovely will also be offering product sampling and raffles.
I am especially excited because I’d like to become a runner. Playing tennis and all the other activities I’ve been doing regularly to get fit are great, but I have always wanted to be one of those women who laces up her sneaks – rain or shine – to hit the pavement for a nice run. Time to myself, time to think, a rhythmic routine that I can do to stay healthy….I will be that girl!
Also, Dark and Lovely sent me a few products to try on my hair. I’ve heard really good things about this line from two of my most trusted sources, Traycee of KISSSeventySeven and Monet, who writes here on L4L and also blogs at CurlsAndMo. They both were excited about the performance of the products and the way they left their hair feeling, along with such a low price tag. So, I can’t wait to try the products for myself.
Please, if you are in the area, come by the Philadelphia Marriott on Saturday morning for a fun fitness event and hair tips. I’m really looking forward to it, I’ll be there in my workout gear with a bottle of water!
