Bad Ass 5 Miler Run Recap

I got out the door about 15 minutes later than I wanted to for the Bad Ass 5 Miler virtual run, but I had a kid wake me up in the middle of the night and then spent 3 hours trying to fall back asleep.   At least I got out before the sunrise and then I had to stop a take a picture because well.. it was beautiful!
The run felt a little rough, I fueled with a peach and a cup of coffee pre-run and it wasn't really enough, but I pulled through.  I also had a dead Garmin so I used an app on my phone, which I don't normally do because it isn't as easy to keep track on.  or I am just not used to it.

We've been getting quite a bit of rain so the dirt roads were muddy.  I did most of my run on the 1.5 miles of pavement that is close to my house.

I do really like the shirt that came with this virtual run.  It's soft and comfy, although cotton so I was all sweat soaked by the end. Did I mention it's really soft?  Totally pajama sort of material.
Always feels so good to be done with a run! 
And I got a pretty sweet medal to add to my collection. 
 and that is the second race I have done in this series.  They have another two that you can register for. One is Father's Day themed and the other is a 4th of July themed one.  I have to admit the 4th of July tank and medal are awesome.  They also come with magnets and options for headbands and socks. 


  1. This was my first virtual race, and I thought it was pretty awesome. Like you said, the shirt is pajama-y and that is what I will use it for...

  2. Great job, Christy! I had to sit this one out because I was out of town, but I do hope to participate in another one soon! Love the 4th of July themed race!

  3. Dang, I love that shirt!

    Your pictures always make me want to move to a farm in Montana.

  4. I totally forgot about it... dang it... I need to give my medal to some kid for fun.


Because I love hearing from you all!
