SRA AmbasSRAdor

Yep, you read that right. I am a Sacramento Running Association (SRA) AmbasSRAdor – get it? 😉 This picture pretty much sums up how I feel about being chosen to represent the Sacramento running community.

The Sacramento Running Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was established in 1982 with the mission of bringing world class running events to the Sacramento area. The first state of this mission was fulfilled when the inaugural California International Marathon was held in December of 1983. (from their website).

As everyone knows by now (unless you just started following my blog) I F-ing LOVE running. I LOVE Sacramento. Put those together and you get the California International Marathon…at least I do. The CIM is the race that made me decide to become a runner, my first marathon and my favorite race of the year. FYI 2015 will by my 4th consecutive year running CIM, and I will qualify for Boston there this year.

 As you can see we got some sweet swag at the AmbasSRAdor meeting last night. I was really happy to get another CIM 30th year bag because mine is falling apart.

I am very honored to be have been chosen to represent SRA. Like I said, it really is a dream come true. When I started running I looked into the SRA; who they were, what they did and if I could get a job there. Unfortunately, the love of running  is not enough to meet their requirements to be hired on. So the next best thing is to be an AmbasSRAdor and when I saw they were putting together a program I was super excited to apply.

I am all over social media so be sure you will hear about all the great things SRA has going on. This Sunday is actually the first free run of the year from the “Come Run Series” These are runs put on once a month at different locations all over Sacramento. Here is the info:

Actually, the best thing about this opportunity is that I get to share my love of running with more people. It’s been my goal since I started running back in December 2011. I remember reading blogs, looking up local races, seeing people running around the city and wanting to be a part of that community. Now I am! I hope this year I encourage more people to get out and run. I want to encourage you to be a part of your community and see how you can make a difference!

I look forward to this year with all of the other amazing AmbasSRAdors for the SRA!

  1. Aw this is awesome! I myself am from the Bay Area and have family in Stockton, so it’s great to see a fellow blogger proudly represent so close to home! Hopefully one day I’ll be able to run in the races put together by your organization! Congratulations!

      • That is one of my goals this year as well. I am focusing on nutrition and getting stronger. FYI BodyTribe Fitness on T street in Sacramento has a group called Iron Grrls that meet up every Wednesday at 7pm for workshops on lifting. $5-15/session. I’ll be there tonight.
