I can’t believe that its almost here! In just 5 short days my mom and I will be heading up to Amelia Island for Zooma Florida. It seems like just yesterday that I was finding out that I was an Ambassador and planning for a race that was 5 months away… and now its this weekend!
Last weekend I got a taste of the Zooma fun when I went up to Jacksonville for a Zooma sponsored training run at 1st Place Sports. There were 6 mile and 10 mile routes available to participants with 4 pacers to help people along. The course went through UNF and there were restrooms and water stops along the way.
I wasn’t able to run, but the event gave me a chance to meet 6 of my fellow ambassadors and some of the folks participating in the race next weekend. Since I wasn’t running (darn broken toe) I stayed at the store with Kristin, another ambassador, and we chatted about life and the race.
After the run they gave away some great prizes from Feetures (one of the race sponsors) and some Zooma bags and shirts. The ambassadors went to a nearby Starbucks to chat a little more and grab a snack before we all went our separate ways. I had to head back to Daytona to pick up Pepper before finally heading back to Orlando. Jacksonville doesn’t seem that far away until you have to drive there 3 weekends in a row. Who signed me up for this non-sense? Oh yeah, that would be me.
You still have time to sign up for Zooma Florida and join us in Amelia Island this weekend. There are 5k, 12k, and 1/2 marathon distances. All races end on the beach and there is a huge after party at the Ritz-Carlton with tons to do, including some restorative yoga.
