Fleet Feet Lady Distance Classic

I do not know about many of you, but as an independant business owner long hours are just part of the gig. Today my alarm was set for 5:30 am and as usual I always spontaneously awaken a few minutes before it goes off. My wife is greatful. Saturdays are still an early to rise day for me but today was the Lady Distance Classic 5K and 10K race in Blue Ash sponsored by Fleet Feet. Vendors were to be set up by 6:45. Last year I had a summer time employee do it for me as I was out of town. I can say that I will not pass that job on to anyone else as long as I am in town. I had a great time! The morning was beautiful, the walkers and their families were a delight to serve. I have can not express how excited I was to be there. The energy just kept getting better and better as more people came to the tent to sample my gelato and sorbet. I started with Lime Cilantro Sorbet, Maple Wanut, Strawberry, Lemon Basil, Chocolate P-nut Butter Chunk, Lemon Sorbet, and finished with Banana Caramel Praline.
There were at least 75 other booths at the festival, food, fashion and information. The festival was held at the Blue Ash Civic Center on Cooper Rd. The walk raises money for womens health and fitness. Please consider stopping in to Fleet Feet for some great gear. Thanks to all of you who stopped by today. I hope you will consider purchasing a pint or two of Madisono's gelato and sorbet at a location near you. I will see you next year!
