Today I ran…ZOOMA Great Lakes

5th November 2012, By: dimity, Tags: , , ,

As many of you know, Sarah and I have been ZOOMA fanatics for the past three years. Brae Blackley, the founder, was generous enough to give us a table at the ZOOMA Texas race in 2010, just a week or so after Run Like a Mother was launched…and her continued support helped launch us into the race-expo-speaking duo we are now. To say we are extremely grateful doesn’t even begin to cover it.

2013 is bringing lots of new things for us both: ZOOMA is headed to Amelia Island, for one, and we are still planning where we’ll be. So this may be my last shot at a ZOOMA video where I pretend I’m Sofia Coppola. It’s total DIY, but I love doing it. Enjoy. (Oh, and please go vote.)

    Oh – that was wonderful and just what I needed as I settle down for a long night of watching returns….now there is no way I’m not getting on the treadmill in the morning – no matter how late it gets!

  2. Paula S. says:

    I totally loved this! I’ve never heard of ZOOMA,but now I want to do it! I wonder how long it takes to drive from Denver to Austin? I just might have to do this – would be a fun family vacation! Thanks so much for sharing.

      That’s a long drive, Paula, but it’s a great race…and Lost Hyatt Pines is a great place to spend some time with the fam at.

    Love this video. Can’t wait until Zoomz Amelia Island, FL.

  4. Maggie says:

    Great video of the Zooma race in my hometown!

  5. Angela says:

    Hey, is Zooma ever going to do an event in the NW?

    • dimity says:

      Hey Angela…probably not in 2013, but I know they’re constantly scoping out more opportunities rich in female runners–which totally describes the Pac NW.

  6. Joyce Stath says:

    I LOVE this video! Women run for such a variety of reasons, all of which motivate us to push harder. I would like to know about Zooma; I have never heard of these races. I recently posed the question “How has running changed your life?” on a local Facebook page for runners. It is a pretty deep question, and I got some great responses. I would love to hear more so that I can use them in an upcoming blog. Email me at Sarah and Dimity, thanks so much for your inspiration, your ability to laugh at yourselves, and your dedication to women’s running!

    Love these videos! I still picture the women in my head from Nike every time I hear Sara Bareillies’ King of Anything.

    I just ran my first half marathon Saturday (RockNRoll Savannah) and will continue training for the ZOOMA Amelia Island Florida in January!

  10. Dara Bentley says:

    Love! Today I ran to prove to myself that yes, I can get out of bed and run at 5am!! I hope to run in the Cape Cod Zooma. Will you ladies be there? I would love to meet you!

    • dimity says:

      Hey Dara…we’re still planning our 2013. Cape Cod is a haul from our respective hometowns, but that doesn’t mean we won’t make it…stay tuned.
