ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon &10K

I am an ambassador for the ZOOMA Annapolis 10k and Half Marathon. It is perfect activity as I begin to embrace running. I am honored and excited. It is a great organization – the ZOOMA vision is to promote women’s and girls’ health and fitness by encouraging them to participate in a challenging and fun running event.

Gather your friends and coworkers and get a group together. I ran this 10k race last year; it is a beautiful, well designed course through downtown Annapolis. Even if you are not local, there are plenty of hotels in the area and it is a perfect place for a girls’ getaway weekend.

In an effort to get 4000 women participating in the event, this year, the Ambassador’s are leading training runs. Even if you are a little nervous, please come out to one of the Saturday Runs. These are no drop rides, and all paces are welcome. The training schedule is designed to build up mileage, so that everyone will be ready on RACE DAY!

This year’s proceeds go to support the Got Your Back Network. GYBN works to help and support the families of our military heroes. GYBN works to bring some brightness, joy, comfort and encouragement to military families who feel adrift or are facing a difficult time in their lives. We offer military families dealing with the ultimate loss a way to see a brighter day through a variety of special events, activities, mentoring and guidance services.

If you have ever had any interest in a 10k or Half Marathon, I encourage all women to pick any of the ZOOMA races: Austin, Annapolis, Colorado Springs or Atlanta.
