Meet Our Ambassadors
Rebecca - DC's Wine Country
I've been an avid runner my whole life, but my journey really took off in February 2013, when I ran my first half. After running through high temperatures and 100% humidity for over two hours, my first thought upon crossing the finish line was, "when can I do that again?!" I've now made it my goal to run a half or full in every state and DC (32 states to go!). My favorite part of this journey has been all of the incredible people I've met and amazing friendships I've formed, both at races and through social media. I'm excited to be a Divas Ambassador because I love sharing my passion for running and helping others recognize their potential to accomplish things they never thought possible.
Diana - Puerto Rico
As a busy mom of 3, I always thought to myself, "I'm not a runner," until one day my friend introduced me to the Divas Half Marathon & 5K. Something in me said, "Stop saying you can't! You can do this!" It was then that my training began. I started motivating my girlfriends, saying, "If I can do it, you can at least try!" In 2011, I was asked to be the Divas Announcer for the inaugural Divas Half & 5K in Puerto Rico. One week before the race, I ran the 13.1 mile route, so that on race day, as I announced all the names coming through the finish line, I would have a better understanding of what it takes to do the same. After this first Divas race, my passion for running grew and I ran several other Divas Half Marathons in the years to follow. I love motivating others like myself, moms and women that say they can't run, because that's what I used to say! Every year, I've organized a team of women to train so we can support each other and hold one another accountable in order to live a healthier and fit life. I love the girl power behind this race and I can't help but share my enthusiasm about the Divas Series!.
Elena - San Francisco Bay
I started running in 2005 in an effort to get fit and have since run over 100 races. I've completed multiple marathons and a few ultras, but the half marathon is my favorite distance. When I ran the Divas Half Marathon in San Francisco Bay, I felt a true camaraderie among my fellow runners. I hope to be able to help create that wonderful experience for other running "Divas".

Rachel - DC's Wine Country
I am a full-time corporate office manager, fitness blogger, and a busy mom of 2 boys. After the birth of my second child 6 years ago, I decided it was time to get serious about losing weight and becoming healthier for myself and my family. I have lost 90 pounds, become a fitness blogger to inspire others, and I'm a group leader for a no- profit fitness group for local women called "No Excuse Moms". I have run several races over the years, including my first half marathon, the Divas Half Marathon in DC's Wine Country. I am looking forward to participating in the Divas DC's Wine Country event in 2016.

Renee - Long Island
All runners have goals and I am lucky enough to have met one of mine: a newly appointed Divas Ambassador! I'm excited to share all the great news about the Divas Half Marathon & 5K Series, especially the Long Island race. As a past participant in this race and a runner for a few years now, I have made countless friendships over that time. That has inspired me to inspire other women out there to reach their goals. Follow my running journey which has its ups and down (pun intended) on my Gettin' Fit Fab Lifestyle Blog!
Jodi - Long Island
I'm a personal trainer and group fitness instructor who always has my next run vacation planned. I hated running until I was 45 years old and ran my first 5K on my 46th birthday. The Divas 5K in LI was my first BIG race, and I was totally hooked on races after that. I've run 12 half marathons in many different states and am training for my first full in January 2017. I became a trainer and fitness instructor full time to keep me accountable, which has helped me maintain an 80-pound weight loss for over 30 years. I'm excited to be a Divas Ambassador because it's a women's-focused race. Plus, there's one in my hometown of Long Island, making it easy to share with my fellow "locals". I hope to get other new runners loving the idea of "Girls Weekend" races.
Stacey - St. Augustine Beach
Seven years ago, I started running with a Couch to 5K Program after having my last baby. Since then, I've completed many races ranging from a 5K to a 50K and I'm set to complete my first 50-miler next January. Running is now something that truly makes me who I am and I would be lost without it. I love it so much I became a certified running coach and started my own business with a friend who loves it as much as I do. I am thrilled to be a Divas Ambassador because I love seeing the empowerment this race gives to women completing their first 1/2 or their 100th 1/2. It is such a great course, has amazing crowd support and the BEST medal!
Jennifer - North Myrtle Beach
Exercise and fitness are my passion. I grew up playing sports, but quickly changed to running races in college. Now, I vary between endurance events, and love the training as much as the goal race. I'm a certified run coach and group fitness instructor, because I realized I love sharing that passion with others. The Divas Half Marathon & 5K Series inspires women to reach goals and celebrate, making 13.1 miles so much fun. I'm honored and excited to be an ambassador for the race!
