Creative idea for a bachelorette party: "My friends and I ran a 15K race together."
Bachelorette: Brianna Swales, Florida
Every year, Brianna runs a 15K with her uncle and their two friends. She didn't want to miss out before her wedding so she decided to incorporate her girlfriends into the tradition. Although they didn't train together, everyone—runners and non-runners alike—came together on race day.
Party payoff: "Because everyone lives in different cities, all of my girlfriends trained for the race independently, traveled from afar and met up to run it together. About six or seven of us ran, while the other four girls cheered us on. I ran with my veil in tow and wore a T-shirt that said 'Bride to Be Running Down the Aisle.' The other runners wore T-shirts that said 'Chasing the Bride Down the Aisle' and the girls on the sidelines had shirts that said 'Always a Cheerleader, Never a Bride.'"
If you try this: Making fitness a priority at your party doesn't mean every bridesmaid has to get buff—there are lots of ways for your friends to support your healthy goals.
