I’m so glad I finally took the plunge and ran this race. For whatever reason, I always thought that this race was wicked small, so I didn’t have high expectations on race day. Boy was I wrong! The first amazing factor … Continue reading Race Recap: The Sweetest 5K Run/Walk in DE ~ 3/9/19

I was also instantly hooked by ZOOMA’s sizzle reel: Picture an inspiring weekend filled with strong women, yoga sessions, intelligent speakers, an exciting expo, and celebrations in an unforgettable resort location. ZOOMA … Continue reading ZOOMA Women’s Race Series: Texas – Lost Pines ~ March 8–9, 2019
