On the Zensah Arm Sleeve Giveaway post I asked people to leave a comment as to what is important to them from a fitness perspective when choosing a hotel.
The most common response was that the hotel be in close proximity to the expo and start of the race.
(query: why didn’t anyone mention that the hotel be near the “end” of the race?)
Other responses included:
That the hotel be in walking distance of attractions, restaurants, parks, etc.
That the hotel be near a nice/safe/scenic place to run or walk such as running trails, or parks.
That the hotel has a good fitness center with an elliptical machine and/or treadmills.
That the hotel has a pool.
That the hotel has a refrigerator.
That the hotel is pet-friendly.
That its nice when the hotel offers free breakfast, or pre-race food for the runners.
(I’m surprised that no one said that the hotel offer the runners a late check out).
And the winner of the Zensah arm sleeves is Jocelyn (via http://www.random.org/). Jocelyn said she wanted a hotel that is close to a running path or running-safe neighborhood since she said that she runs most days. She wants purple arm sleeves – size small. Congratulations, Jocelyn!
There’ll be another giveaway in the next few days – the fabulous new Rodale book by Dr. Jordan Metzl – The Athlete’s Book of Home Remedies.
