ZOOMA Amelia Island Recap

Kristin & Jessi after the ZOOMA Half Marathon

The ladies travel (virtually!) from Portland to Sochi to Florida, where their guests Kristin Smith and Jessi Schacht recently ran a ZOOMA half-marathon on Amelia Island. Kristin, fresh off a marathon (as in, 6 days prior!), and Jessi rave about all aspects of the all-women's race, from the bounty of port-a-lets to the champagne at the post-race party, and even participants huddling together to stay warm at the unseasonably cold start line. The running partners talk about their "very conscious decision" to run the final the miles together rather than beating themselves up to hang with the 2:10 pacer.

But first, Sarah recounts her harrowing four days in #Snowlandia, and how she's been staying up late to watch the Olympics. Sarah is loving slopestyle, while Dimity admits social media is crushing her Olympic buzz. Sarah also shares her personal connection to the Winter Games. (Hint: It's via her ex-husband.) Finally, turns out both of Dimity's children and one of Sarah's are geography-geeks.
