That would be ME!!
I was SO excited when I learned last week that I had been picked to be a Zooma Florida ambassador for 2015. I’ve been following this race series for awhile and loved what they were about. ZOOMA is unique among other women’s races in that it is literally “run by women” (pun intended!)
Zooma Florida is in beautiful Amelia Island, FL. ZOOMA Florida will treat you to an exciting and pampering fit girls weekend at The Ritz-Carlton in beautiful Amelia Island on north Florida’s Atlantic Coast. Enjoy a fitness expo and welcome cocktail (or mocktail) on Friday evening and run a scenic and flat half marathon, 12K or 5K on Saturday morning. After you cross the finish line, celebrate your accomplishment with friends at an awesome after-party expo on the oceanfront lawn at The Ritz-Carlton. Enjoy your adrenaline and wine-fueled buzz with live music, massages, shopping, recovery yoga, and lots of empowering girls weekend energy.
The ZOOMA Florida half marathon and 12K is a flat, scenic, point-to-point course starting in quaint downtown Fernandina Beach. The half marathon course winds under the shady live oaks of Fort Clinch State Park before traveling the beach road south toward The Ritz-Carlton. The 5K is a beach run, starting and finishing on the beach behind The Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Half marathon, 12K and 5K athletes finish on the beach and walk into a fun post-race party at the host resort. (Note: the last .2 miles of the half marathon and 12K courses are on the beach, so be prepared to finish in the sand.)
Zooma even schedules training events in each host city to help you train for your event. For the Florida race there will be a Kick-off training run in October along with a 10 mile training run right before the big race. If you are interested in attending either of those events, you can find more information here.
I am so excited to be a part of this event and I plan to share my journey with all of you. If you would like to join me on this journey, you can register here and use code MEGHAN15 for 10% of your registration (good until 1/14/15).
*Disclosure: As a Zooma ambassador I receive a complimentary entry to the race. As with all my posts, all opinions are 100% my own.
