Fitness Friday-Zooma Cape Cod

Happy Friday all!!  Thank you so much for your encouragement yesterday!  I did make it to the Gap! :-)  As I said yesterday, I had a big surprise for you all.....well I was chosen to be a Zooma Connector for their Cape Cod Half Marathon and 10k race on September 22nd.  I couldn't be more excited!!!!  The Muscle Milk Zooma Race Series is "dedicated to promoting health and fitness by providing an encouraging, inspirational, and healthful venue in which to run".  Celebrating and supporting strong women is something near and dear to me.  From the moment I heard about the race last year I have been bullying encouraging friends and family to sign up!
 In case you haven't heard of Zooma or the amazing race they are having here on Cape Cod, let me tell you all the reasons you absolutely need to put it on your race schedule today!

Reason Numero Uno....
Who can't use a getaway with their girlfriends?  Now throw into the mix a beautiful race with amazing sponsors.....oh and a chance to win all of this!!!

Actually taken on a beach on Cape Cod that you will run by!
I mean really....come down, up, over, whatever to Cape Cod and you can see ME!!! I won't be running this year since I will be just 2 weeks away from delivery and I'm clearly not as badass as the lady that ran Chicago and then gave birth. However I will be there to cheer you all on, meet up, give hugs, high fives, whatever!!! Stay tuned for meet-ups and more!!!

What do you say? Grab a friend, sister, mother, girl running down the street and head to Zooma Cape Cod!!!
