When I signed up for my first 5K in 2007, I did so with a team of over 30 people, mostly women. On race day, we were there for each other. As a group, we cheered for every last teammate as they crossed that finish line. The support on that day made me want to keep running. It made me want to push my limits. Because, I knew that I had found a community that I could relate to and that would continue to inspire me.
Over the past five years, the faces of my running friends may have changed, but one thing hasn't - the amount of support I get from my fellow endurance athletes.
- We train together, both face-to-face and virtually.
- We race together, both locally and at destination races.
- We get each other, struggle and triumph alike.
That's why when I learned about the ZOOMA Women's Race Series, I wanted to be a part of it. And, when I was given the opportunity to be a ZOOMA Annapolis Connector, I jumped at the chance. Really, who wouldn't? ZOOMA has a great thing going on here. (Note: ZOOMA Annapolis just partnered with TNT. You can read about it HERE).
ZOOMA's five race series, with events in Texas, Maryland, Georgia, Wisconsin and Massachusetts, empowers women runners of all levels.
As they state on their website, events are not to be missed.
"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."
Does it really get any better than that?
