Yesterday I attended the Refuel got chocolate milk press conference to unveil their new “My After” ad campaign. They revealed the new athletes, print ads and we got a sneak peak of the web clips.
The new Refuel athletes include: Ricky Berens (swimmer), Chloe Sutton (swimmer), Apollo Ono (speed skater), and Sarah Reinersten (triathlete)
The most surprising thing about this campaign is that they didn’t ask me, a 3:59 marathoner and clumsy bike rider, to be in it the lack of milk mustaches! This is the first milk campaign with a clean upper lip.
It was crazy to be surrounded by the best athletes in the country! We had just got there and spotted Abdi Abdirahman next to us. SR, Janae and I asked him 290 questions about running, eating, how much he weighs (that was SR) and everything else we could think of! I asked him to give me some fast running magic and he threw some fastness on my head. THANK YOU.
I made a few new blogger and OC resident friends!
Some of the athletes who received awards included:
Jennie Simpson – Female Runner of the Year
Anyone else think she looks like Aron from Runner’s Rambles?
Best Swag Bag Award goes to: The box of Peanut Butter Gu!!!! Died.
“I’d like to accept this Gu on behalf of athletes everywhere with an inappropriate, but passionate love for all things peanut butter and endurance sports. Combining the two is a match made in Heaven Kona…”
Now I’ve gotta go find a tri to do…
*I can’t find the clips for Dara Torres’ web clips, but they are amazing! I will share them when I get ‘em!!
See ya in a bit!
