Episode 6:What it Means to Be a Woman Runner
Part 2, Where We Talk to an OB/GYN
This episode is part two in a three-episode series about what it means to be a woman runner. In this episode, we’ll talk with Dr. Jennifer Mushtaler, affectionately known as OB JEN. Dr. Mushtaler is an athlete herself and specializes, among other areas, in pelvic floor support, urinary incontinence and female athletics at her practice in Austin, TX. Oh boy – you can see where this is going! We met OB Jen at ZOOMA Texas where she and a great group of women from her office always come to volunteer.
ZOOMA Texas lets you savor the splendor of spring wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country, as you wind your way through 13.1 miles well outside of the Austin city limits. Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush dance in the waving grasses on either side of the quiet roadways that make up this scenic race. For the last few miles of the half marathon, you’ll traverse exclusively on the gorgeous grounds of the host property, the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort.
Perks of this year’s race include:
Entry into a scenic, professionally-managed, and timed half marathon, 10K, or 5K race
Access to full fit girls weekend schedule – a Fitness Expo, a Mocktail Party, and an After-Party Expo featuring wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, post-race massages, shopping, and live music
ZOOMA Signature Swag Bag
Water and energy drink stationed along the course and at the finish line
Food at the finish line
A sweet ZOOMA medal for half marathon finishers (pictured below), and a medal for 10K and 5K finishers
Access to special room rates at the official race resort, the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa
Here’s to happy running and wishing you a weekend of memories with your girlfriends! We know it’s a weekend we won’t forget.
