ZOOMA Napa

A few weeks ago, I decided to go out on a limb and apply for a ZOOMA ambassadorship for their Napa Valley race.  I knew it was a long shot since I reside hundreds of miles away from the race location.  When I got my thanks but no thanks email, I was a bit disappointed.  I've always wanted to go to Napa Valley and the idea of racing there just sweetened the deal.  Lucky for me, my friend Cyanne was interested in the race as well.  A discount for the race solidified it.  Our summer race plan was born!

I am officially registered for the race and I simply can't wait!  I've heard wonderful things about the ZOOMA race series.  I'm a sucker for a women's race series and the swag sounds awesome.  Each participant gets a swag bag with $50 of fun things including a tech tee, feetures socks, ZOOMA hat and reusable bag.  And the medal looks fantastic!

I am eagerly awaiting lazy afternoons sipping wine in the California sun with a runner friend.  I've started researching things to do and the must see places.  So now let's start the countdown until the end of June!


Have you ever been to Napa?  What do you recommend?

  1. Yay! Sounds like so much fun. I've never been to Napa (bucket list!) but I'm sure you ladies will have an incredible time. :)

  2. You will absolutely fall in love with the Napa Valley! We spent five days there (and in Sonoma) back in 2012 and it wasn't enough time to visit all the vineyards and see all that we wanted to see. I have a long list of vineyards and restaurants I'd recommend. If you want the list, I'm happy to e-mail it to you!

  3. I could not be more excited about this! We're going to have SOOOO much fun.

    My adds to our list: the wine train and renting bikes to bike around. And lots of wine. ��

  6. Oooo! I'm considering a family trip next year to Napa. I've already been looking up vineyards and of course with San Francisco so close, why not a trip to the Disney Family Museum?

  7. The wine train is a ton of fun!!!!! Must do!!!!! Also, spend a day in Sonoma (much lower key). Have lunch at V. Sattui--it's a winery that also has food, outdoor picnics on certain days, and a fabulous shop full of different foods. You really can't go wrong with anything you do there. Download the Winery Finder app for your phone and you get tons of discounts and free tastings :) Have a blast!
