It’s a Hoopathon!

Well this is it. I have trained for more than two months for The Country Music Marathon and finally the day has arrived. No I’m not running or walking, but rather hula-hooping. Yes a group of about 10 of us will be hooping the half marathon with our shiny pink matching hoops.

For several years my mom has trained dozens of people to run the marathon, but I have never had interest. Now, throw a hoop in there and I’m sold. Sadly she is out of town this weekend and won’t see me accomplish the 13.1 miles trek. She has been a great coach though.

I bought tennis shoes and have hooped up to 18 miles a week for several months. I have calculated out that I have officially hooped over 100 miles and lost 9 pounds! Whoo-hoo!

We are raising awareness for Hooping for Hope. For more Click HERE! The organization provides Hooprama hula hoop fitness programs for breast cancer survivors free of charge. Wish us luck!
