Spring Forward Virtual 5K!

Disclaimer: I am a Jost Running Blogger. I have been given free entry into the virtual races. I have received no other compensation. All the opinions are mine and mine alone!

First of all I want to say that I have greatly enjoyed being a Jost Running Blogger the past few months! These virtual races have been so much fun! And the bling is just amazing! If you're ever looking for an awesome virtual race (5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Marathon distances) with great bling and that benefit some awesome charities, be sure to check out Jost Running!

This month's virtual race is called "Spring Forward!" I decided to run the 5K again.

I ran this race right after work one afternoon...but before my boys got off the school bus. So I was once again racing the bus! I wasn't sure how this run would go. It was the first run since that horrible long run.

But I laced up my shoes anyway and headed out the door hoping for a good run. I didn't have too much time to think about it because I had to get going before my boys made it home.

The first mile or so was tough but then I really got into my groove! It was surprisingly early for me...I usually don't get into my groove until mile 3 or 4!

This run was amazing! I felt great the entire time! And I was running fast...for me at least!

Did I beat the bus? Let's say we tied! I was turning back into my neighborhood when I saw my boys getting off the bus. I made it!

Next month's race is called "Unplugged." It's all about clearing your head during the run. Jost Running wants you to take it a step further and unplug from your music and any other distractions so that you can really feel the run! I love this! I hope you will register for this one!

QOTD: Is is starting to feel like spring where you live?
