Unfortunately we can’t take claim to the BRILLIANT idea of virtual races…. they are apparently a ‘hot thing’ out there.  I’m not a virtual race stalker like some (although I probably should start to increase my chances of winning some goodies) – but if I see one – I’ll do it!  Especially since I’m going to be running anyway – may as well have some fun with it ;)

One of our members pointed out the Sweat Your Thorns Off 5k from The Boring Runner (who is actually quite entertaining).. so we signed up and both did it today!!

Mine was part of a 10mile run – coming in at 28:49(ish) at the 5k point.  Heather did hers as part of a marathon relay (she did about 7.5 miles total) coming in at 28:57 ohh I just BARELY beat you Heather!! (sorry – just now noticed that since we ran two completely separate runs today).

Anyway- virtual races are fun ;)  If you find one please let us know!! It’s all about finding motivation (and running FREE races hehe).

Only 2 days left to sign up for our June SPIBelt Stuff it and Run Virtual 5k.  You will have until the end of the month to complete your 3.1 distance.  We will start July’s Virtual 5k at the beginning of July :)
