Three Things Thursday

Yesterday I had the awesome chance to have lunch with Brae Blackley the Founder of the Zooma Race Series as well as 2 other rockin ambassadors Michelle and Jessica and other local runners, coaches, and news media.
Jessica, Michelle, me, Ann Curi Preisig, Brae
It was held at the beautiful Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth where the race is being held.  I really didn't need more reason to love Zooma but meeting Brae and hearing more about the race, I have to say I left super excited to bully encourage everyone I knew to sign up!  So.....that includes you too!!!  Here are three MORE reasons to convince you to hit the register button!!! 

1. Swag-a-liscious....Zooma is a boutique women's race which is focused on giving you the whole experience!  With sponsors like MuslceMilk Light, Skirt Sports, GU, Barefoot Wines, Trek Women, Sayta Jewelry (making the finisher necklace), and HINT water the swag is going to be awesome!!  I know we run for the joy of running (milling a post around in my head about just this inspired by Born to Run) but it helps when the swag is good.  Just take a look at the great swag table there yesterday complete with Muscle Milk, HINT water, hats, and women's sized race t-shirts!!!

If you could choose, what would be your dream swag?  What have you gotten from a race and loved?
Honestly the most comfortable running hats I own!!!
2.  Post race Party....The race begins and ends at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth, MA.  The post race party is going to be a blast!!!  You have live music, yummy goodies and a nice refreshing glass of Barefoot Wines!  Oh and to add to all of that...you get to hang with your BRF at this beach.....
Yeah Sea Crest Beach Hotel sits on Olde Silver Beach which is always a summer stop for my family and I for obvious reasons!!!  The Sea Crest is also offering a special rate for anyone traveling and staying for the race of $199 per night with no night minimum....this is a STEAL for Cape Cod in September!!!  Most places require a minimum of 2 nights plus are more expensive.  Book early though since they have the larger rooms go quickly.
3.  Running with your BRF for a great cause....Not only is organization of Zooma Race Series amazing (run by two sisters Brae and Brooke along with Tricia), but the Cape Cod race is partnering also with another great organization called Cape Cod Child Development which provides resources to Cape families through early intervention to teen programs.  They are geared toward helping their community and even closer to my heart...the children of Cape Cod.

Come on ladies (and men too)!!  Gather your BRF (best running friends), head to the Cape, and run ZOOMA Cape Cod (don't forget to use the discount code on my sidebar when registering)!!!   (and consider yourself warned because Fancy Nancy is going to be throwing down the challenge hammer VERY soon!!!

  1. I wish I could run this! Not going to be quite back to 1/2 marathon shape by Sept though. I think Zooma needs a michigan event!

  4. THose are some great race sponsors! Womens sized shirts is always a HUGE plus in my book. Unisex shirts suck and end up wasting space in my house for the most part.
