ZOOMA Virtual Run


Good morning friends! I am finally HOME and it feels good. Lots of catching up to do, and my race recap from my half marathon is coming on Wednesday, but for today I want to tell you about something really cool taking place in two weekends.

I have mentioned before that I am a race ambassador for the ZOOMA Florida event. Well, all the ambassadors are going to be hosting in person or virtual runs on the weekend of the 27th! I will be running the Jazz Half that weekend so I can’t host an in person run, but I would love to have YOU participate virtually. Oh you want incentive? Well, ZOOMA will randomly be awarding prizes to participants.  All you have to do is post about the run on your blog or post photos of you participating in your hometown on the ZOOMA Facebook page. You can run whatever mileage you are at on your training plan. on either the 27th or 28th of October. So, a lot of you will be running anyway? So why not join in the fun for a chance to win cool stuff!?!? (Don’t forget if you register for ZOOMA FL to enter code FLAMB4 at checkout for a 10% discount!)


Did you say DISCOUNT?!?

Also, I would personally LOVE to know if you plan on participating, so I can give you a shout out when I do a round up post about the virtual run! So, in addition to making sure you post about your participation in the virtual run (link back to here!) or posting photos on ZOOMA’s facebook wall, please please let me know you are participating so I can make sure to remind you (if you want) and include you in my post afterwards. You can leave a comment here, email me at runningwithsass@gmail.com, or both. I would love to hear from you! So, who’s with me?!? (Note: this is a laid back fun thing, you don’t have to sign up anywhere, just let me know you participated and either blog about it or post a photo to ZOOMA’s Facebook page to be eligible for prizes!)

QOTD: Do you plan to participate? Have you ever done a virtual run?

    I’m in! I’ve never done a virtual run before. My friend and I are training for the Los Angeles Marathon (in March) with the L.A. Leggers running group (along with the Tinkerbell Half in Jan., and the Pasadena Half in Feb). 8 miles that day. I don’t have a blog, so all I do is take a picture of me on the 27th running with my group and post it to Zooma’s FB wall? Sounds fun!
