"It's My Birthday and I'll Run If I Want To" Virtual Race Recap

Stats-
7 miles (6.2 of these miles were for the virtual run) /1:15:50
Average pace- 10:50

Plank a day x 3: 1:04, 1:01, 1:02

It's week 3 for the half marathon training with the Sole2Soul Sisters.  We had 14 women show up to run this morning...we were about 10 ladies short but some of them ran yesterday and some are running in the morning.  Very hot, very humid, and hard...that describes the run this morning. But the ladies stuck with it and did awesome!!! I get home and see a warning on my phone...we are under a heat advisory!!! No wonder this run was brutal!  Next week I think we are going to start our run 30 minutes earlier.  I was trying to get them acclimated to the heat since the race is on September 30 (will be super hot) and doesn't start until 7AM but this heat is dangerous. 

I also ran for another reason this morning.  Rachelle at Livin the Fit Life is hosting a virtual run for her birthday! 

It was a last minute decision last night but I decided I would go for it!  I knew I was already running 7 miles today so the 10K option was the best for me.  I ran the 6.2 miles in 1:07:31 at an average pace of 10:50! 

I ran most of the run with my friend Mindy...yes we are the two Mindy's lol!


This is Stacey...such a sweet lady and I am loving getting to know her better through this training!  She was one of our leaders/coaches for one of our Sole2Soul Sisters groups a while back.


And here are some of the sisters that ran with me today!!!  Love these ladies!!!  And yes...we have a mascot...Cody!  That sweet dog runs all the miles with us...amazing!!!


So I definitely think you should run this virtual race for Rachel's birthday!  And you can enter to win some amazing prices just for running...who doesn't like free stuff??  Head on over to her blog and sign up!!!  Happy Birthday Rachelle!!!!

QOTD: Have you ever ran a virtual race before?  Which one?  I ran Daily Mile's Feed the Turkey 5K on Thanksgiving a few years ago!

  1. What a fun run! Thanks for participating:) I love that you have a running mascot to do all the runs with you. I love to enter virtual races. It is a fun way to keep me motivated and I don't have to get up at 5am to run them:)
