Happy almost Friday everyone! As you may know by now, I was lucky enough to be selected as an ambassador for (the brand new) Zooma Cape Cod Half Marathon and 10k For Women which will be taking place on 9/22/12 in Falmouth, MA. This past Tuesday I attended a FUN Zooma kick-off event at City Sports in the Back Bay. The event was a blast; it was wonderful to meet the other ambassadors as well as mingle and run with other ladies who attended the event.
Since I live in Boston and regularly attend runs at City Sports, I led the 3 mile group on the evening's run. It had been a long time since I ran with a group of women...what FUN! I especially loved the 3 women who were training to run their FIRST half marathon. The 3 women agreed that Zooma Cape Cod would be their first and ONLY half marathon but everyone else knew that simply wouldn't be the case! Little do they know...right?? We told the ladies that they'll have their 2nd half marathon planned within 30 minutes of finishing Zooma.
The event gave participants (both women AND men) lots of freebies! They even raffled off a free entry for the half marathon! Muscle Milk and Cytomax were there giving out free samples too. The event seemed to be pretty well organized and the turnout was great. Several new people showed up for the event and I sincerely hope they will return to the City Sports run club very Tuesday night at 6:00pm!
Check out (some of) the lovely ambassadors below:
Michelle (her energy was amazing!) Me, Nancy (OMG, cutest pregnant lady EVER!) Samantha (she's got her own "love on the run") Jess (she is one fast mother runner!!) and Brooke (the event leader, such a nice lady!)
It was great to meet everyone and I'm really looking forward to meeting the other ambassadors in September. Zooma Cape Cod is going to be such an incredible event! No matter what kind of runner, jogger, walker you are, this event is for you! This event is all about health and fitness and having FUN! If you're looking for that perfect race, this is the one! I have done 6 women's races and I can tell you they truly are special, powerful, welcoming and everyone is so encouraging and positive. I sincerely hope you consider signing up for the race!
