Ready, Set, Run, EAT

Annalynn and I recently flew our way to the finish line at the John Hancock Hosts The Cooking Light & Health Fit Foodie 5K. The 3.1 mile run along the water was the perfect way to kick off our Saturday morning. I ran, she ate graham crackers, and we both cheered when we saw the finish line. (I like to think all of her babble towards the end was her shouting… “Run Mama, Run.”)


Even better, I got to race with fellow mother-runner, Jess. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times before – mom friends are worth their weight in gold. The super-speedy mama really inspired me to pick-up my running game. If it weren’t for the few stops needed to refill graham crackers with the kids, we totally would have finished at – or under! – a 10 min/mi pace.


The 5K was just one part of a total event weekend. At the three-day John Hancock Hosts The Cooking Light & Health Fit Foodie Race Weekend, calories are both burned and earned. From Friday night’s Party with a Purpose to Saturday’s 5K/15K and Sunday’s Sweat Session; there’s plenty of fun, fitness, and food for everyone.


As host of the 2016 race series, John Hancock sponsored the John Hancock Vitality Village, the ultimate post-race experience that rewards a job well done and celebrates participants’ hard work through delicious and healthy experiences. It’s probably the best post-race experience I’ve had at a race. There were dozens of booths with delicious samples, fun photo opportunities, cooking demonstrations and more! It’s the perfect way to celebrate a job well done on the race course.


Fitness without good nutrition is not nearly as impactful on your health as when you combine the two. That’s why John Hancock has created John Hancock life insurance with Vitality, which rewards people for the healthy choices they make, like exercising, seeing the doctor, and now, purchasing healthy foods at the grocery store.


With John Hancock Vitality and the new HealthyFood program, not only can you save up to $600 a year on the nutritious foods you buy, but you can also significantly save on your life insurance premium and earn valuable rewards and everyday savings for those healthy food purchases.
