Yay! We did it! Congratulations to all who participated in the Virtual 5k this weekend. Some of you even went the extra mile (or 13.1 :)) and did it twice! I am so happy to see the results and can't wait to try for another event (anyone want to think about at 10K in March?).
When I started this 500 Mile challenge and we determined we would do a virtual 5k, I will admit I was nervous of actually running a 5k. Why, I don't really know, I had run 2 races before. However, I think it was the fact that it meant that I would have to keep up the running to be able to do the Virtual 5k as planned. I am happy to say that the experience was exciting to have so many people involved, but somewhat of a non-event since I have been able to run 3.1 miles for a while now. I am happy that it gave us a motiviating event to do together, but I am ready to go the extra mile (pun intended :)).
Also, congrats to Beth for finishing her first "half-mary"! Your time was awesome and I was so happy to read that you had an awesome experience. Your emotional breakdown at the end reminded me of mine at the end of running the first 5k that I had really trained for. What an accomplishment!
Anyone have any races coming up?
