Day 2: SXSW

Our official “Healthy South by Southwest” initiative was announced live yesterday on KXAN-NBC and we encouraged viewers to tune into our live Twitter feed via hashtag #SXSWfit. We will be tweeting fitness and nutrition tips and finds throughout the 20th anniversary conference to encourage participants to make the most of the festivities in a healthy way.

Coolest part of this story? Today I met Steve –in real life! Today was a good day.

The night was still young and we were happy to meet leaders in tech, social media, film, fashion and academia!
