Zooma Annapolis, Disney, Race-Cations! Oh MY!
I have started my countdown for the race-cation that I have been looking forward to for the last few months. In case you were wondering it’s 36 days until I head off to Disney World to enjoy the International Food and Wine Festival… AND… you guessed it run a the Disney World Wine and Dine Half Marathon with my girl, RockyMtnPearls, her husband, and my hubby. If you’ve been here before, you know that the only thing I enjoy more than racing is racing while on vacation. I strongly believe that if you want to see a great view of somewhere while traveling, check it out on foot. As for Disney races, not much compares to that feeling you get when running through the parks. I will admit, at the Disney Princess Half Marathon in 2013, I may have teared a bit while entering main street and seeing the castle. I expect a similar feeling at the end of Food and Wine because fun fact, Epcot was my favorite park growing up. I loved pretending the countries were real and stamping my “Passport” in each one. What can I say, I’ve always loved to travel.
Knowing that Disney is around the corner literally makes me giddy like a small child. However, I realized over the weekend, that I have lots of race-cations coming up! This spring I’m heading to Key West, Asheville, and I just found out that in May I’ll be returning to Annapolis, to do the Zooma Annapolis run as a race Ambassador. I have to admit, I’m kind of surprised by how many race-cations I’ve already managed to get in the books for 2015. Earlier this year, I completed the Zooma Annapolis 10K with my mom and we had a fantastic time. This is the kind of race you could run every year and still love it. Annapolis is one of the cutest cities I’ve ever been to, yeah I said cute. It’s like that small town that you always wanted to be a part of so you could think that you lived in Stars Hallow. Annapolis, has this old world charm that’s tangible while there.
So I am thrilled that I get to be part of Zooma Annapolis as a race ambassador. This also means that I am turning this into a race-cation. Yes, it may only be an hour from house however, a girl needs some girly time every once in a while. Therefore, I’ve decided I’m turning my Zooma experience into a fun girls weekend.
If you’re planning to Zooma this year in Annapolis. And yes, Zooma is a verb. Then join me! AND I happen to have a 10% off code that’s good for the 10K or the Half. The code is: SAMANTHA15. It’s good till 5/27/15. I would get in before the price increases over and over and over. (Ugh I hate that). This year’s races take place on 5/30/2015.
Are you excited for any upcoming race-cations? Is there somewhere that I just have to go? Are you going to Zooma with me this year? Have you done Zooma Annapolis or another Zooma race this year?
