The Napa Valley Zooma Race Ambassadors are excited to bring you our “Runner Spotlight Series”! Each week we will be featuring a Zooma Napa Valley half marathon or 10K runner on each of our blogs. As women runners, we want to use our role as an Ambassador to highlight and share the stories behind the incredible women preparing to run Zooma in June. Each runner has a special and unique story and we invite you to learn about them through this series. Please feel free to click through the links at the end of each post to read about additional Zooma Racers.
Meet Runner Chandra …
- Name: Chandra Brouillette

- Race: Half Marathon
Why are you running Zooma Napa Valley ? Because it is close to where I live and is mostly a flat course.
When and why did you start running ? I started in 2009 with Team in Training/Leukemia Society to honor a friend who passed away from Leukemia.
How many races have you done and which was your favorite ? I have run 9 half marathons and completed countless 5k’s and 10k’s.
If you could pick one celebrity to run with, who would it be and why ? I do not have a celebrity I would want to run with. The one person I would like to participate in a race would be my mother. She is my biggest cheerleader. She has trouble walking, so I would have to push her in a wheelchair.
What is your favorite memory running ? Crossing the finish line at my first half marathon.
What is your running must have ? Music
What is your favorite post-run indulgence ? Chocolate Milkshake
Who is your running inspiration ? Every person who is unable to run is my inspiration.
What is the most important lesson you have learned from running ? Not to be so hard on myself.
