So I really have been in to virtual races lately. Last year I signed up for so many races that I was traveling on Saturday out of the month to compete. It became very busy and I hate being away from my family. So I had a friend mention he was doing a virtual race and I asked him what they were. His response was that there are races out there that do virtual races in order to raise money for a specific cause. You run the require distance on your own time. They ship you a medal and a race bib and you post your results online.
Once he told me that I had to check it out. Sure enough it was a real thing. Soon I found myself signing up for all sorts of races. How cool was this? You can still compete and train and you don’t have to travel to do it.
One of the races I signed up for was The Walking Day 5k. I just completed this race this week and got my medal. It really looks like the logo from the AMC show The Walking Dead which by chance happens to be one of my favorite shows.
I have a lot more races coming and I also just found out that there is a virtual race series from Disney so you know I am signing up for that one.
Happy Monday guys!
