Never heard of ZOOMA? It’s an all-women’s race series that puts on boutique (aka “fancy”) events in various destinations around the country with a fun girls’ weekend in mind. Basically, a running vacation with your girlfriends. Rumor has it that their post-race celebrations typically include champagne, massages, jewelry, and cupcakes. Umm… sign me up!
In addition to running the race in Annapolis, I’ll be part of a panel of national bloggers to help advise ZOOMA with their goal of hosting events that cater to the real needs and wants of female runners. If you have something you’d like to see at one of their races, feel free to leave a comment on this post. I’ll be sure to let the ZOOMA folks know!
ZOOMA has 5 upcoming race events already on their calendar and they’re gearing up to unveil another exciting race location. Where do you think they’ll go next? Submit a race location guess here for a chance to win a swag bag from ZOOMA’s mystery location!
I’m so honored and excited to be part of the ZOOMA series and working with such amazing women. Plus, the Annapolis race sounds like such a blast! If you’re in the area and thinking about running the ZOOMA race, please let me know. We’re planning an meet up, and I’d love to meet ya!
We had a nearly-empty jar of peanut butter in the house (surprise, surprise), so I used it to make “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats in a Jar.
In the mix:
- 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 banana, mashed
- 3/4 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
I guess my breakfast didn’t hold me over very well because, just a couple of hours later, I got hungry again, so I ate a Greek yogurt with chopped apple, sliced almonds, and raisins.
I wasn’t super hungry when lunch rolled around, but I ate something because I knew there was no way I could make it until dinnertime without eating. I had a turkey wrap with grainy mustard and pickles inside.
