Marathon Minute April 1, 2014

by Lauren Ganes, Marathon Coordinator

While this past Sunday was the kick-off for See Jane Run training for the 5K or half marathon on June 22; I also overheard many WOW Women discussing upcoming spring and summer races ranging from 5K’s up to full marathons. So now is a good time to check-in with your team mates and see what they are training for.IMG_0148 (640x480) (2)

Last year I was privileged to pace women at the Diva’s Half Marathon in Burlingame.  This year the Diva’s 5k and Half Marathon will be Sunday, June 1.  I loved the energy and camaraderie of women participating in this very flat race.  It was a new and fun experience to wear a boa as I crossed the finish line.

It was easy to park at BART and take a shuttle to the race.  This is a local race which I think all WOW Women would enjoy.  To register go to www.runlikeadiva.com then click on San Francisco Bay Area.

Registration opens today for the Big Sur Half Marathon and 5K on November 16.  The route looks beautiful, and this race fills up quickly so don’t forget to register: www.bigsurhalfmarathon.org.  We would like as many WOW women as possible to join us for this “end-of-the-year” event.
