Someone pinch me. I’m going to meet Jared from SUBWAY again.
I think the title said it all, but this post will have to suffice to contain my excitement about it. Okay, I’ve met Jared a couple of times now. Don’t want to brag or anything, but we’re already like BFFs. Just kidding. I’m sure he’ll remember me when he sees me because I’m a bit eccentric, and now that I’m bringing a posse, I’ll make an impression. Last time he actually remembered my name. That was a shocker to me.
Yes I now have a posse and it consists of Mamavation Sistas. Who else? My Mamavation posse consists of Lisa Johnson & Rachel Lacy–two Mamavation Graduates that are VERY active within the community still. They rock. I love them. And they deserve this trip to NYC to get to meet and run with the infamous Jared from Subway. I like to reward people who work hard and have a positive attitude.
So here is the plan for those of you who are following along and will be living vicariously through us on Monday and Tuesday. We will be tweeting with the #commit2fit hashtag. Commit 2 Fit is Subway’s campaign for Jared and the rest of the country. Last year, Jared put on some weight and was harassed by the paparazzi. This year he’s recommitted his life to healthy living and is getting into goal setting. Jared is running the ING Marathon in NYC on November 7th. So he’s training. Right now. In fact, we will be running with him as he’s training.
Monday is travel day and then a special Mamavation TV show about SUBWAY, our new Mamavation sponsor. Early Tuesday morning we run through Central Park with Jared. This is where the media knocks us all down for pictures of him. Then we have breakfast at SUBWAY directly afterward. Then back to our rooms to get freshened up and to meet up later for lunch with Jared. I wonder who will get to sit next to him? I might have to fight Rachel & Lisa for that opportunity. I know there will be other media people there as well, so we might be stuck sitting next to a reporter for the New York Times or something. But in my dreams, Rachel, Lisa and I all sit next to him in tiny table and he ignores everyone else. LOL And last SUBWAY has a special activity planned for us before we have to fly back. We have NO idea what it is, so stay tuned for some surprises.
When I get back, I’ll post about our trip and then there will be some SUBWAY giveaways for anyone who comments. So COME BACK!!
Jared is also going to be creating videos called “Moments in Time” of his journey next month and I’m very excited to be able to share them with you. They will also be on the official SUBWAY Facebook page. As a person who has lost weight and maintained it myself, It inspires like crazy to see him gain and lose again. None of us are perfect, especially not me. Knowing that Jared has struggled, makes me feel like my own struggles are okay. We all struggle. A bunch. So yeah for SUBWAY and Jared for turning it around and inspiring us all!
Okay, here is a video that Jared did last time I saw him for the Mamavation Sistahood. I’m hoping when I come back I’ll have another one to show you.
Has Jared from SUBWAY inspired you? OR who have you been inspired by to live a healthier life? It’s nice to have role models. Who are yours? Let me know in the comments….XXOO
