When thing I love with blogging is following other runners, learning tips, sharing the joy of running. Some runners are great at organizing things, and as a runner you’ve got to love a good virtual race. Jess from Run With Jess is organizing her Jelly Bean race again this year. Want to join? All you need to do is run, have fun and share the joy.
Here is a little more about the race from Jess’s blog post:
What’s a virtual race? A virtual race is running a specified distance (timed) without being present in the actual race location.
DATE: Anytime during Easter week, April 1-8, 2012 (Sunday-to-Sunday)
LOCATION: Pick your favorite local route or just hop on a treadmill.
EVENTS: Choose the event that works best for your current fitness level.
– Run 5K (3.1 miles)
– Run 10K (6.2 miles)
– Run Half-Marathon (13.1 miles)
– Bike 21K (13 miles)
You may participate in more than one event. Earn 1 point for each event completed.
Report your final race time(s) no later than Tuesday, April 10 at 12:00 noon CST
. This is a fun race; no Garmin/treadmill photo required to verify your time. No reason to cheat your time; prizes are all random. Input your time on the spreadsheet or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
So let me recap: I get to run what I would be running anyway, sign up for a fun online race, get a chance at winning goodies and interact with other runners. Please sign me up. Oh wait I already did 🙂 Did you?
