I’ve been spending the week at a conference in San Francisco this week and I have to say I’ve really enjoyed the city so far. I’ve spent most of my time in the downtown district so far, and loved the energy of the area. I’m right in Union Square and had a chance to meet up with a work friend and her husband. And of course I’ve eaten well. So far, my best meal was a simple one. I had lunch at La Boulange Bakery and it was excellent. A BLT on crispy bread with greens and roasted tomato soup. Delightful!
I’m planning on getting in a run with a group led by the Nike store that is around the corner from my hotel. Later this week I’m headed a couple of hours north to spend couple days with my sister and her family. I plan on getting in a longer run while there (but not crazy long since I’m now officially tapering!!).
Speaking of San Francisco, I’m really excited to share something cool with y’all. Jamie and Alyse, the awesome ladies behind the Sweat Pink movement, are launching SweatGuru. SweatGuru is the first marketplace that brings people together around fitness classes and experiences. By allowing anyone to organize, discover, book, and share fitness classes online, SweatGuru takes the work out of working out. This is kinda amazing! As someone who loves trying out different classes, it’s pretty awesome to have a database where I can easily find and book classes that interest me. SweatGuru is launching TODAY in San Fran, LA and NYC with many more cities to come. I am personally super excited about it coming to DC — and y’all should be too! Best thing? SweatGuru is FREE for consumers! Here’s what Jamie has to say about SweatGuru’s origin:
“SweatGuru was born out of the need for a better way to manage my growing bootcamp business, take reservations and stay in touch with clients,” said Jamie Walker, SweatGuru co-founder and CEO. “As a fitness consumer, I also wanted an easy way to discover, reserve and pay for classes in my neighborhood. SweatGuru is built by fitness pros for fitness pros. We will start by growing our network in
San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, and look forward to expanding to other markets soon.”
Pretty awesome. If you are in SF, NYC or LA — definitely check it out!
