ZOOMA – Coming Soon!

I cannot believe that ZOOMA Annapolis is almost here.  It feels like ages ago that I applied to be a race ambassador and was accepted!  And well, race week is here!  I swear, I love this race but this race must not love me.  Last year, I almost didn’t run because of some family issues that interfered with my training.  And this year, I have to say, with the stress of work and the move, my lack of training has {Read More}


Who doesn’t love to set a personal record(PR)?  Whether it is hard earned or seemingly a fluke, the feeling of achieving a PR never gets old for me.  And now, the ZOOMA race series is recognizing the challenge of setting a PR at one of their races. For more information on the ZOOMA Personal Best Program, click here! So whether it is your first race in a certain distance OR running your fastest time in that distance (within the past five {Read More}

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I took a much needed break from blogging and social media over the holidays.  I wanted to focus on enjoying time with family and friends and I did just that.  My two week vacation from work brought us to Connecticut and Maine to visit with family and then down to South Carolina to ring in the New Year with some of our friends. It was an amazing two weeks and I am terribly upset that it is {Read More}

ZOOMA Annapolis 2013

ZOOMA Annapolis is back on my race calendar for 2013! I am so excited to announce that I will be running the race as a ZOOMA Annapolis ambassador! Last year, my experience at ZOOMA Annapolis was so positive.  I had a blast participating in the weekend’s events – from the expo and listening to the talk provided by Another Mother Runner‘s Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea to the barefoot wine after party at the finish line.  And listening to the stories of other {Read More}

Race Recap: ZOOMA Half Marathon June 2, 2012

After a bit of a heat wave, the tornado-like weather brought about the perfect race conditions for Saturday morning.  The temperature started off in the 60s with a breeze off the water with sun filled skies by mid race.  My friend Niki and I arrived at the start a little bit behind schedule.  I decided to wait in line for the toilets while she went to the bag check.  I am so glad I made the pit stop but man {Read More}


Lots of cute swag from the lovely folks at ZOOMA! It started off with the ZOOMA Annapolis black technical t-shirt and the over the shoulder gear check bag.  This is the first time I have seen this design for a gear check bag; it is kind of a nice change from the drawstring backpack thing (you know what I’m talking about right? LOL).  And thank you for having a women’s fit t-shirt with a v-neck! And even though I love medals, {Read More}

ZOOMA Expo and a Fun Friday!

So I lied about you not hearing from me until after the race…  I figured you might want to know about our day and the expo! Today, Jake and I drove to Annapolis to hang out before the Expo.  We walked around a bit with Cora and had lunch at Chick and Ruths, an underwhelming experience there but at least it was a good crab cake.  Cora enjoyed sporting her new shades EVERYWHERE (inside and outside). Then we headed to the {Read More}

T-Minus 12 Hours

I have been all over the board trying to decide whether or not to run the ZOOMA half marathon, as I originally planned, or downgrade my half to a 10k. May was a really tough month for me to train.  I still ran but I won’t exactly say that I trained hard and regularly.  I fit it in where I could and some weeks were better than others.  That being said, I am still in better shape today than I was {Read More}

Wednesday’s Run – May 30, 2012

Got out early (for me) this morning.  It was still HUMID!  I guess I just need to suck it up and get used to this Maryland weather already.  From living in the northeast until my twenties and then heading to Texas, I just can not get used to this feeling of having sweat popping up for no reason other than standing outside.   Anyway, I went for a short easy run because I have ZOOMA Annapolis this weekend!  I was {Read More}
