Marvelous Monday!

I am linking up with Katie for some Marvelous in my Monday.

I’ve got some pretty exciting things to share, and who doesn’t like good hearing good things on Mondays?

First, as I mentioned I am an ambassador for the Cape Cod ZOOMA race

ZOOMA is unique among other women’s races in that it is literally “run by women” (pun intended). It is a women’s race series that “celebrates the power and beauty of all women”. They focus on promoting women’s health and fitness by encouraging them to sign up for events.

The ZOOMA Chicago race will take place on Saturday, August 10th at Montrose Harbor! So why is this important?


The Muscle Milk Light ZOOMA Women’s Race Series is calling all women runners to Run to Chi-Town for a fit girlfriends’ getaway this summer, and will award the grand-prize winner of a national sweepstakes an all-expenses paid trip for two to Chicago on August 9-10 for the inaugural ZOOMA Chicago Women’s Half Marathon & 10K, including luxury accommodations at The Langham Chicago, travel expenses, and a fitness-and-fashion makeover from the contest’s sponsors. The sweepstakes is sponsored by Oiselle (women’s running apparel), Sherpani (sporty bags), Handful (sports bras), and FlexPower (performance and recovery cream), who will be also be providing runners’ up prizes.

You have until May 3rd to enter and winners will be announced on May 7th on ZOOMA’s facebook page.

Go enter then come right back, I’ll wait.

This weekend was also the HLB Book Club meet-up. Not a lot of people could make it, so it ended up being Kristen, Nick and I. I really enjoyed the movie and got to spend some time chatting with Kristen afterwards.

The March book club selection is Julie & Julia. I haven’t quite decided on what to do for the meet up yet, but if you have some fun ideas let me know.

Unfortunately, that night we were supposed to go to a St. Patrick’s Day party at a good friends, but B was having a severe case of separation anxiety. He ended up freaking out until after 9 pm when he fell asleep out of sheer exhaustion, so we ended up not being able to make it to the party. Such is the life of being a parent.


Fortunately he is super cute and hilarious. That’s one of my halloween costume hats.


Have you seen Oz? What did you think?

      I find French cooking to be very intimidating. But I love Julia’s no BS attitude and her dominance in a male dominated kitchen.

  1. Yay ambassadorship.

    I saw Julie and Julia, but I’d love to read the book. How about a recipe swap? Bring the dish and copies if the recipe?

  2. Congrats on becoming an ambassador! I wish there was a Zooma race closer to me so I could run it too! I know, I could just travel to Chicago or one of the other fab locations but that just gets so expensive! Maybe someday….

  3. Congrats on your ambassadorship with Zooma! Sounds pretty exciting!
    I haven’t seen Oz, but I keep hearing mixed reviews. The only reason I want to see it is because of the 3D.
