I originally planned to run this in the morning, but it was very rainy and cold out. I ran it in the afternoon with a belly full of food, but it wasn't raining anymore. I of course got a side ache right away.
I put my bib under my long sleeve shirt, because I was optimistic that once I got warmed up, I would want to run in my tank... wrong.
Thankfully, even though it had rained all morning, most of the water had soaked in and the road wasn't too muddy.
6.2 miles in 50:16 for an 8:06 pace
My kids thought the medal was super cool and noticed it right away hanging with my other medals.
- I feel a little silly running with a race bib all by myself. Maybe if I ran it with a group of people it would feel less silly.
- The tank and the medal that came with the virtual race were great.
- The bib, tank and medal were fun to get in the mail for a virtual race.
- While the medal is awesome I can't decide how it fits in with my other race medals. Maybe I need a collection of virtual race medals vs my half marathon and marathon medals. The half and one marathon and relay medals I have just mean more to me. They seem harder won.
Their Log Off. Shut Down. Go Run. virtual race sold out so act fast!
