WOW Women (and fuchsia colored shirts) reigned at the Oakland Running Festival yesterday! Congratulations to Colleen B, Kyoung L and Rowena R for completing their first Half Marathon! Bravo to Laura, Lizette, Robbi, Amanda (and hubby Louis), Michaela and Fiona on their personal bests, and bravo to our wonderful Coach Stephanie in placing 4th in her age group! All WOW Women should be proud of their accomplishments yesterday, from the 5 K, to the relay and the half marathon. WOW women you rock!
Thank you, Pam S, for setting up our booth, and thank you husbands Adam and Andy for watching over things while we ran. It was wonderful to have our own special “bag check”.
The WOW Team thanks Michaela and Tony for opening their home to us for a delicious meal and celebration. It was so much fun to keep the celebration going.
We thank you, Coach Stephanie, for your guidance and training that helped each of us cross the finish line!
Let’s keep our momentum going as we begin to train for See Jane Run in June!
