Rock N Roll Expo San Francisco

I know it’s Wednesday and this post could have been done a few days ago, however like the saying goes … “better late than never”.  I enjoyed spending last Saturday working along side one of our amazing Zooma gal pals {Andrea} at the San Francisco Rock N Roll Expo in San Francisco at the Moscone Center.  Unfortunately, I had not signed up for that particular race {on my to do list}, but I did love working for and chatting up Zooma.  Miss Andrea and I had so much fun meeting some great people, hearing their running stories, finding out where they traveled from and telling them about ALL the amazing Zooma Races. The Napa Valley race is scheduled for June 20th, 2015 and that is pretty much around the corner.  This is my second year being an ambassador for the all women’s race series and I have to say, they…  Read More…

The Zooma Napa Valley Half Marathon Is Back 2015

  I have some exciting news to share this morning!  The Zooma Women’s Race Series  is back in Napa Valley  and I could not be more excited.  Last year was the inaugural year for this race and it was such a huge success, they are doing this again.  I had the opportunity to be a race ambassador  last year and had an amazing time.  I was working with other great women {fellow ambassadors}, I was training hard, meeting new people and just enjoying and embracing being a runner.  I had low expectations for myself as it was my first half marathon, but to my surprise {and my hubby’s}, I actually did pretty well. The race date this year is June 20th, 2015  and you have the options running a 10k or half marathon.  This makes for an amazing get away weekend with girlfriends.  Napa Valley has so much to offer,…  Read More…

Running Thoughts and Wedgies

Another “Runner’s Thoughts”  blog post.  Why? Well because when I did this a few weeks ago, it seemed to have been a hit and was fun.  I just laid it all out there and shared what went through my head while running.  If you have been so kind enough to follow and read my ramblings, I must thank you ♥.  If you have been following along with me via facebook, twitter and here, then you know that I have been getting myself {mind and body} ready for my very first half marathon. I know, I know.  I have gotten advice and wisdom from MANY of you wonderful runners out there and it seems that the most popular of advice is to “just have fun” and “don’t worry about your time”.  Well, if you knew me personally, then you would know that I am goal setter and goal getter.  I raise…  Read More…

It’s Wednesday Wonderfulz #1

Good Morning!  It is time for our first #Wednesdaywonderfulz  blog link up and I am so excited to be joining my fellow blogger Sarah at How My World Runs  to bring this to you. What do we have today to share? The run I had yesterday right before it started to rain. The look of the dark sky and feeling the drops of rain hit my body made me feel charged. The smell of the fireplace coming from a home as I was running past {I love that smell}. Have you tried the new Hershey’s chocolate spread?  The hubby picked this up a few weeks ago and I have since found that for an afternoon treat, it went well with a spoonful of peanut butter. I attended the CASL leadership conference in Orange Country with our daughter and 44 children from our middle school.  It was an amazing experience to…  Read More…
