My first virtual 5K

Running girl.
Tonight I ran my first virtual 5K. It's an interesting concept where you have a week to run a 5K and you just email a picture of yourself with your bib once you're done. I ran tonight on J's parent's treadmill because it's been cold and raining or snowing here for a while.

This 5K was special for a couple of reasons. There are two bloggers I met not too long ago, Laura from Mommy Miracles and Greta from GFunkified. They are both training with Team in Training for a 1/2 marathon and raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Among other initiatives, Laura and Greta put together this 5K as a fundrasier.

Look at me go!
I really like that they've pitted the Canadians against the Americans in this fun duel, and seeing so many bloggers take part is nice. Even though I ran by myself tonight I feel like I was part of something bigger.

3.11 miles in 35:59. Definitely not my best time.
My time wasn't great and I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow, but I feel great. It was the kick I needed to get out there and get some exercise. And I love that my kids were excited. When I was done my run Little J hopped on the treadmill and ran for 5 minutes straight. Little K would have too, and she really wanted to, but was forced to sit this one out for bad behaviour. (It's not easy being 2 these days.)

Tomorrow (November 12th) is the last day to register and maybe you'll join me? Get some exercise and donate to a great cause. You have until November 15th to do your race.

Have you done a virtual race before?
