Welcome to a new series on the blog: Fit Friday! We’ll explore topics in fitness and wellness together. Have something you want me to answer or cover? hmu at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here’s a collection of all the Fit Friday posts.
My favorite, favorite, FAVORITE race of all time? The ZOOMA Annapolis race!
This will be year FIVE of me running this course. It’s the one race I always make sure to run.
Why? First, it’s a women’s race – founded and managed by women and mostly run by women (though men can run the race!). Second, the course is challenging and scenic. You start at Navy Stadium, run downtown to the water, by the Naval Academy, over the Naval Academy bridge, and back to Navy Stadium. The scenery is incomparable.
The swag is also killer. A race tech tee that I actually wear (fitted for women!), usually something fun like socks – one year we had a yoga mat and a water bottle, it’s just all so useable and cute.
The post-race (and pre-race) expos are also super fun. There are vendors with killer gear, massages, sometimes yoga, great speakers, and fun music. This is one race that I actually look forward to the pre- and post-race expos.
The past few years, I’ve been an ambassador for the program. What does that mean for you? You can get a discount to come run the best race ever with me! Use code AUNDRA2017 for 10% off your total price.
Come earn that happy-post-race-sweaty photo op with me! And Melissa. We will be the one in the super cute rainbow tutus.
There is a 5k course, a 10k, and a half marathon – truly something for every runner. Let’s kill those bridge hills together!
