I’ve committed to a Half – Zooma-ing

Back in the fall, I wanted to set a goal to run a 1/2 marathon. I thought if I signed up for a 1/2 in a really great location I’d be more motivated to do it. But it turns out the really great location costs money and we didn’t have money and I didn’t train so I didn’t go. The date came and went and on the weekend of the event, I was home, sitting my ass on the couch.

So a few weeks ago I started to research 1/2 marathons in the spring. Again, I was looking at “exoctic” locations but it turns out those same exoctic locations still cost money. And, I felt like some of them were too soon, they didn’t really give me enough time to train. I then stumbled across the website for the Zooma Half which is just north of here at the end of April. AND, it’s all women!!!  Bingo! Local, inexpensive, the end of April, no men ZOOMING by me as I stumble up some hill – seems like the perfect trifecta of thingsto get me going. AND THEN, I was contacted by Zooma and they asked me if I’d like to be a Zooma Coordinator – and VOILA! A race (for me) is born!

Now I’m committed and I’d love for you to run with me!!  The race is April 22nd and there’s a 5k option as well.  AND, I have discount codes!! Who doesn’t love a discount???  (The discount is good for $10 off the half and $5 off the 5K.) What do you say?  This is a run for all levels and trust me, I’m no speed demon who’s ever run more than a 10k before. If I can do this, so can you. Oh, and there’s a meetup on Saturday the 28th to run and meet other participants. So if you’re interested but aren’t completely sure, come to the meet up!!!

You can register here:  http://zoomarun.com/atlanta/atlanta-registration/ and the discount code is: ATLCON4

    Woo Hoo!

    I have been eying this and thinking about asking you. I’d love to do a half, but since I am currently training for a 5K (yeah, that sounds odd to me too – not to knock anyone for whom a 5K is a big deal, as it is all I can run at the moment, but… I really feel a 10K or half would be a big accomplishment!) I don’t know if I can really bump it up that much farther … The 5K I am training for is Mar 24.

    I did sign up for the ZOOMA meet up a couple weeks ago, so I’ll see you there at least!

    Oh I might sign up for the 5k…. I don’t ever have a need to run a 1/2, but my 1st 5k try is end of March so this is a great follow up… fun!
