Now that the new year is approaching, I’m truly starting to plan and look forward to my training for early 2016 races. Whether you’re looking for some motivation to make it through the cold winter or simply looking for a supportive way to start running as a new year’s resolution, I have the perfect event to share with you all today.
The Zooma Run Love Challenge is the first virtual event put on by the ladies of the Zooma Women’s race series. Starting January 4th, you will receive a training plan for either a 5K or 10K, a weekly newsletter and access to an online community with great ideas and guidance, an exclusive podcast bonus, and of course swag! (We all love swag!)
The swag includes this super cute sweatshirt, a medal, and gear from Zooma sponsors including Feetures! socks. The easiest part of a virtual event is that there’s no traveling involved. You can sleep in, run where you want, and run alone or with your running buddies! This is especially nice for those of you who, like me, live where it’s cold and you otherwise wouldn’t do a race in the middle of Feburary.
I have never done a virtual race before and I’m really excited for this event. The February 14th date is at a nice place in my half marathon training. It also gives me something to look forward to on Valentine’s Day as I’m single as can be. I love running more than I could love a man right now anyways 😛
I hope you all are now just as excited about the Zooma Run Love Challenge as I am. While training starts on January 4th, registration is available until January 11th. For $50 you get all of the great things I mentioned above, as well an opportunity to fall in love with running if you haven’t yet. Either check out the last link or click here to register!
