ZOOMA Annapolis Pre-Race Fun!

Reusable Totes From ZOOMA!  

After work on Friday, we drove to Annapolis for the ZOOMA packet pick-up and Honest Tea Mocktail Party.  We quickly checked into our hotel and then made our way over to the race host hotel, Loews Annapolis for the evening.

As a race ambassador for ZOOMA Annapolis, I received complimentary registration for my race of choice.  Since we were not pre-registered this was my last chance to bail on the half marathon and run the 10k.  Since I hate the idea of going back on a commitment, even with a HOT forecast, I still signed up for the half.

The packet pick-up line went super quickly and that left a bit of time to check out some of the vendors. I got a chance to meet fellow Team Tough Chik member Tonia and chat it up with fellow blogger, Kara, which was really nice!  Soon after, Lara, the ZOOMA Challenge coach and Brae, ZOOMA founder, gave a course preview to runners.  I always make sure to preview course maps!  It was quick and informative which was perfect since Cora was getting really restless.

With time to spare before the Honest Tea Mocktail Party, we made our way over to the hotel restaurant, West, for dinner.  Everything we had was delicious!  So glad we made the pitstop!

Always pushing my buttons!  

After dinner, the hubby took Cora back to the hotel and I went to the Mocktail party with my best bud, Niki.  Honest Tea had some really great drink ideas!  I mean, they would be perfect paired with some vodka, but Friday was not the night for that!  My favorite of the night was the ‘Light Foot Lemon-Limey’ made with Lemon Limey Fizz, cucumbers and limes – DELISH!

I also had the chance to meet fellow ZOOMA race ambassadors and catch up with the soon-to-be first time half marathoners of the ZOOMA Challenge Program!

Melissa, Anne, ME, Katie, Theodora & Tina

And with that, I headed out to get back to my hotel and lay out my race gear before the big day.  Thank you Honest Tea and ZOOMA for a fabulous night of catching up with old and new running friends!
