Attention Women Runners!

Hi everyone! Hope you all are having a great St. Patrick’s Day.

If you are a runner or want to be one and live in the Annapolis/DC Metro/Baltimore area, I have a great race for you this summer!


I recently accepted a volunteer position as a Race Ambassador for the ZOOMA Women’s Race series. The event includes a 10k and a Half Marathon in Annapolis on Sunday, June 5th 2011.

This year, we’re looking to bring over 4,000 women to the starting line, and it’s my job to draw in as many MD/DC/VA area runners as possible! We had our kickoff run/celebration this past Saturday and everyone who came was awesome! There are beginner runners, veteran racers, and everything in between!

So even if you’ve only ever run a 5k, a 10k is totally doable! We have a great training program set up courtesy of Gracie’s Gear that will build you up to your distance in the next 12 weeks 🙂

Not only do we have group runs every Saturday around the Annapolis area, there will be the ZOOMA After-Party Expo, which will have live music, food, wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly (our sponsor!), post-race massages, demos and shopping!

For more info on the race, here’s the website:

For more info on our weekend training runs, go to:

Let me know if you’re interested, have questions, or would like to join in the fun runs I’ll be leading out of the Annapolis area during the next few months!

Please spread the word…the more the merrier! 🙂
