ZOOMA Cape Cod Half Marathon!!

I'm down to single digits friends - yes, as in the number of days my shoes get to taste the sweet, sweet pavement again. I get to detach myself from the ole ball and chain (elliptical), and finally head outside, just as it's turning into summer. I get a huge smile on my face every time I think about it.

If you read my last post, you know I've been having trouble pulling the trigger on any races up until this point. That was until this week, when I accepted an offer to be an ambassador for the Zooma Cape Cod Half Marathon/10K on September 22nd! Combining an awesome race with a weekend on Cape Cod in the fall? Oh, if I must!

Anyone who knows me understands that I don't get behind anything that I'm not truly passionate about. And if you read this, you'll understand why I am so proud to be an ambassador this event:

run. laugh. celebrate.

Imagine a powerful sea of women on the move–encouraging fellow runners and celebrating personal running triumphs. Picture a post-race party and expo all wrapped up in one memorable “after-party expo” where these strong goal-oriented women come together for well-deserved partying and pampering. This is the Muscle Milk Light ZOOMA Women’s Race Series.

Mission: inspire women to live healthy active lives
Pampering amenities and exciting entertainment with a “girls’ weekend” atmosphere

Inaugural event held in Annapolis, MD on June 1, 2008 attracted over 1,600 runners
ZOOMA welcomes both men and women to participate in all ZOOMA events.
2012 events will be held in Austin, TX, Annapolis, MD, Atlanta, GA, Lake Geneva, WI (outside Chicago and Milwaukee) & Cape Cod (Falmouth), MA
What? You say you haven't registered yet? I can fix that - go here, registration is open! The race is capped at 1,000 people, so get in now!
I'm confident this is will be a spectatular event, and I'm hoping as many people as possible will join me!
Happy Training!

  2. Ambassador Wilk, has a nice ring to it. Congrats you passionate person you!

  3. Yay we will be there together :) Happpy to be an ambassador too!!!!

  4. YAY!!!! You're on your way baaaaack!!! I almost chose to run this half marathon as a training run but I think I'm running a different one close to me that same day -- it's the first half marathon I ever ran and it sort of holds a special place in my heart. BUT now that I know that I'll be missing out on this race with you, I'm sad!!

  5. Yay!! I am so happy for you!!! And now we can schedule a rundate sometime too, in addition to sushi and wine dates ;-) Hope to be able to see you race!!

  6. NICE! congrats lady, happy running!

  7. P.S. Not sure why the term "Ambassdor" makes me think of someone who wears a sash. You don't say.....????


  8. This is perfect for you Meaghan! :) I'm hoping to do the Zooma Atlanta next year (and maybe even be an ambassador too!!!) :) Can't wait to hear how you like the whole event!
