Race Recap: Zooma Women’s Series Texas Half Marathon

On Saturday I ran the Zooma Women’s half marathon at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort in Bastrop, TX! I ran this race last year and did it again this year for the experience. I had a great time hanging out with my friends before so why not do it again?

This race is all about hanging out with your friends! I wasn’t really running this for time because it was all about hanging out with my friends and having a good time. Kind of odd though cause none of them ran the half marathon so that meant they were waiting on me after they finished the 10K!

I was hydrated and ready to go but I couldn’t decide if I should wear a tank top or a shirt. I finally decided on the tank because it was supposed to get warm out. Side note: I’m never wearing these shorts with that Nuun gear ever. It just was too much going on there.

To be honest, I couldn’t remember much about the course beforehand, but when I started running, I remembered it all. The race was hilly and the weather was warm. I felt stronger this year running the hills though. I’m going to call this one a person victory because I definitely could notice a difference. But this course was REALLY hilly. It started on an uphill and just kept going until mile 6 which took us on a out and back and then around the golf course.

By the time I got to the golf course I was ready for it to be over. Everyone seems to love running on the golf course but I didn’t. In the end, I finished in 2:17:38 which was 10 minutes faster than last year and I didn’t feel like I was dying.

Yes, it was a women’s race but men were allowed. Willie got a chance to run this year which was kind of cool!

This year the race didn’t seem to have the same feel. The swag bag definitely wasn’t as nice. We got a Zooma journal instead of a hat this year. The journal is nice but I’m never going to use it. I have no use for that in my daily life. And we’re given Feetures socks which are always great. Last year the socks were pink which is a fun color and this year it was just a pair of white socks. It just didn’t seem the same. I was so excited for the swag bags but was kind of disappointed.

There also didn’t seem to be as many people in attendance this year as last.  I know it was a big race weekend here in Texas so maybe that was the reason for the decline.

But there was wine and lots of fun!  I just had a really great time hanging out with my friends and that’s all that matters!
