Wings for Life – Live with Carley

On April 1st, I received an invite to host a live video on the Wings for Life Facebook page. The video is about stretching for runners and it was hosted by me and my friend Carley, the yoga-certified-run club pacer-Iron Woman-(bird lady) @TheHeartRacer

If you missed it live, you can still watch it on the main Wings For Life page or here.

 

See You May 7th Sunrise FL

Marathon Training in Weston

January 2017, a group of fast runners (or should I call the elite?) from Weston asked me for a video.                                                                                                                                                                                I confess I can’t run that fast so I drove by, in order to keep up with their pace.                      The final results you can watch in this short video.

 

 

GoProGirl’s Master Guide to Florida’s Run Clubs

After lots of requests and questions over the years, I am sharing  THE LIST for all Run Clubs in South Florida. When I joined the South Beach Run Club in 2010, they were the only run club group in town (at least that I knew of).      Luckily, that was just the beginning.  7 years later and we can easily lost count of how many groups are available.

And ALL FREE!

I think the best way to do this LIST is to separate by LOCATION  and DAY OF THE WEEK.  I hope to cover all groups and not forget anyone out! ( I can always update new groups in this list, please contact me and I will add your group info)

Jingle Bell Jog 2015

I know I already have a video about this race but that one was in a different city (FLL) and I did not run, I was in the truck with Santa.        2015 I was able to run along with all those ‘Santa Runners’ and had a lot of fun!  (unfortunately, I didn’t have time to edit and finish this video right after the event, but still better late than never)

Watch til the end, do not miss the kids loop, it is too cute!

10 Days to Run with Serena

Alright, day is coming. Lots of working in process and this may be my last post til race day.   I’m hoping you already registered (if not,click here now – http://theultimaterun.com/)

Today, I am sharing some facts about our Tennis Queen Serena. More specifically, 10. After doing a quick research, this is what I found to share:

10 Fun Facts about Serena Williams

* She has played in 60 Grand Slam tournaments in her career and has won 21 of them.

*Her favorite sport to watch other than tennis is gymnastics.

* She has competed at three Olympics and won four gold medals.

*She has lost just nine matches in her 15 U.S. Open appearances. The only person to beat her twice is sister Venus Williams (2001 and 2005).

*She has won 28 straight matches and four straight titles at Grand Slam events.

*Her middle name is Jameka.

*Her favorite city in the world is Rome.

*At 15 years between her first (1999) and most recent (2014) titles, Williams holds the record for most years between U.S. Open singles championships.

*Her favorite food after a workout is a Gatorade bar to replenish protein and carbs.

*Other than dogs, her favorite animals are tigers.(And she LOVES dogs, that’s my favorite!)

Do Not miss this great opportunity to Run with Serena Williams on December 13,2015.

See you there!

30 days to Run with Serena Williams – 12.13.2015

I know, I am ahead 1 day, making the real count 31days but, the day before of this race already count as a “marathon”  -at least for me. Once again, I am glad to be working for this event and this year, I was offered to be one of the Ambassadors. It’s been a few months since I officially  started to work  and, the closer we get to the race day, the harder we work to make this happens. Past years, I worked in the office few days before the race and I also worked on race day doing videos and photos during the event. This year has been way more intense than last ones and I love it. It’s non-stop working every single weekend to get everyone to know about the race and register.

So the same will happen here! If you like the video attached, you should click and register NOW!

If you can’t picture that ‘scene’, I will ask you to please watch this video.
