Laura at Mommy Run Fast hosts a virtual race called 5 by the 5th. The rules are that you have to run either 5 miles or a 5K by the 5th of each month starting February through May. There are prizes up for grab each month for those that participate and record their results.
I don’t do a lot of virtual races because I run so many actual races.
But this one is easy to fit in.
Well, yesterday we had a heat wave. It was 38 degrees.
I drove to UAlbany where I ran last week because I thought that the path around the campus would be clear.
It was for the most part, but in spots, it was snowy and slushy. I had to tiptoe around the slush.
And at every intersection, there were huge puddles. What a mess!!!
But it was a nice night to run and a 5k completed!
I had extra time and the arctic freeze was predicted to return today so I added an extra mile.
Happy Running! Do you do virtual races? Have you been able to run outdoors?
