Cape Cod Ambassadors
We’re excited to introduce to you our 2013 ZOOMA Cape Cod Ambassadors. This is a select group of ladies who are active, creative, energetic, healthy living and/or running bloggers who have a positive influence both online and in their personal communities. They all have different running backgrounds, but they’re all passionate about inspiring and motivating other women to empower themselves through running and embrace a healthy, happy, and active lifestyle. They will help us to keep our runners informed, inspired, and motivated!
Nicole is a mom, engineer and home brewer. She started running two years ago in response to a health scare. She has since completed two half marathons and stayed healthy! She’s thrilled that her family has caught the running bug as well, although convincing her two young sons they can’t come on a 10 mile run has been a challenge. Most weekday mornings, you’ll find Nicole running along the Charles River. You can read about those early morning runs on her blog, Not Just a Half, or on Twitter here.
Amy is a wife and stepmom living in New Hampshire. She spends nine months of the year teaching high school English and attending the varied sporting events of her stepchildren. When she’s not supervising the home base, she is running, thinking about running, or writing about running at Running Escapades, a blog she started to chronicle her quest to become a New England runner. Amy is returning to Cape Cod after completing the inaugural half marathon in 2012.
Jessica is a thirty-something mother runner to two boys (3 and 5). She runs for two reasons: 1) to be able to keep up with her boys and 2) to occasionally run away from them! Jessica lives and runs in her hometown (and site of ZOOMA Cape Cod) of Falmouth. If she’s not blogging at 30SomethingMotherRunner.com, you can find her running along Surf Drive Beach or on the Shining Sea Bikeway.
Nancy, or rather Fancy Nancy as her readers know her, is the mother runner behind Living the Dream. She started the blog in 2009 after the birth of her daughter as a way to keep herself accountable while she worked off the baby weight.Being active in one way or another has always been a part of her life. She played softball and soccer through college which kept her active, but it was after graduation when she stumbled upon running as a competitive outlet and fell in love! Fitness for Nancy took on a whole new meaning after the birth of her daughter 3 years ago. Suddenly she found herself 50lbs overweight and in the worst shape of her life. She became determined not only to lose the baby weight but to come back stronger than before.Fancy Nancy is a wife, mom of two, and an ESL teacher on Cape Cod, MA who spends her days living the life God has blessed her with. With a marathon (Boston 07), 20 half-marathons, and countless 5ks and 10ks under her belt, she has dedicated her life to fitness and being an example of health for those she loves.
