Let’s do this thang

It was a crazy, long day,

even longer with a travel snafu + 3 hours of driving on top of flying all day.

But, I made it! πŸ™‚


After an awesome dinner with the ZOOMA girls (thanks for letting me crash the party!)


FaceTime with my loves,


getting my clothes set out

Hotel 2Β 

and my playlist ready,

it’s time to crash out.

Who knows, maybe it we be my return to racing? If anything, a little bird told me there’s wine at the finish line and a massage. I can deal with that.. πŸ˜‰

See ya afterwards with lots of pics- it’s beautiful here.



Best of luck to those of you who have your own fitness events tomorrow and this weekend! I’ll be sending good energy to all of you as I trudge away <3

  21. Sarah on September 22, 2012 at 11:02 am

    Yes, Cape Cod is a long haul from Boston πŸ™‚ Did you say you are a Zooma Ambassador for the Cape Cod race? They don’t have you listed as an ambassador on the site

    • Fitnessista on September 22, 2012 at 11:28 am

      i drove from hartford- it was a longie for sure!
      i’m on the advisory panel, which is a little different, but still an ambassador http://zoomarun.com/2012/07/blogger-advisory-panel-the-fitnessista/

      • Baroque Diva on September 22, 2012 at 11:02 pm

        Oh my! That IS a long drive… although on a Friday night when the weather’s still good it can take that long even from Boston with normal Cape traffic. Anyhoo, congrats on the race, Gina!! Fun to have you in New England if only for a day or 2! Have fun in NY!! πŸ™‚ I’ll be in Tucson in December- can’t wait to check it out! πŸ™‚

        • Fitnessista on September 22, 2012 at 11:27 pm

          thank you! hit me up when you’re in tucson πŸ™‚

  22. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on September 22, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    Good luck! That’s an awesome playlist for the race. I’ve been loving “Pound the Alarm” for running lately!
