Fitness Friday: Summer Fun Runs

I have run lots of traditional road races: 5Ks to half marathons. With the exception of this one, they are always what you expect. This summer I am trying something new and signed up for a couple of fun runs.

The LoziLu is a women's only 5K trail run with exciting obstacles and a fun post-race party. Now even though it's a "mud run" this event is all about the girlie-girl in all of us.
"Beyond the perfect mud run and a whole heap of fun, your registration provides you a super sweet stainless steel LoziLu water bottle, a stylish LoziLu Sweaty Band, fabulous fun, snacks, beverages, an adult beverage*, bonding with the girls, stickers, free event photos, and a DJ hosted party to shake your groove thang. LoziLu is kind of a sweet deal for all day entertainment."
I signed up to run this race with a team of NH bloggers led by Heather who aptly named us Team Bad Ass Blogger Babes! I really hope we win the largest team award because I hear the prize is WINE!

After covering myself in mud, I'm going to cover myself in color. Color Me Rad is 5K event in which your white shirt becomes a canvas of color as you are bombed with blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow corn starch.
At the finish line you'll be greeted by "the royal rumble of color. Every 15 – 20 minutes everyone will grab handfuls of color and pummel each other until you're black and blue (from corn starch – no real bruising will occur). There will be music, food, and sponsors welcoming you across the finish line with open arms."
I'm running this as part of Team FitFluential and even though I have a feeling there's not going to be a huge amount of actual running going on, I think it's going to be a crazy fun run!

Don't forget to use PROMO code CCAMB8 when you register for ZOOMA Cape Cod. It gets you $10 off the half or $5 off the 10K. There is a price increase tomorrow.

What new things are you planning this summer?

Bloggers Unite

June 11 - Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet up with some awesome New Hampshire ladies. We had a fun time getting to know one another and chatting about bloggingrunning, and races. There's nothing better than meeting more women passionate about running and fitness.

Let me introduce you:

Janine - blogs at The Purple Giraffe. She wears tutus when she runs!

Angela - blogs at Happy Fit Mama. She's a marathoner!

Sarah - blogs at Run Far Girl. She used to teach high school English!

Cheryl - blogs at Live Fit Daily. She's a Georgia Peach!

This summer I will be running the Lozilu Women's Mud Run in Boston along with Angela, the Color Me Rad 5K with Janine, Cheryl and possibly Angela, and maybe I can convince Sarah to run Zooma Cape Cod. Hopefully there will be some non-running adventures to get us together again too!

Do the people in your life share your passion 
for running or fitness?

What new adventure have you been on recently?
