November 2012 Virtual Races

Less than a week away most of us will be eating Thanksgiving dinner with their families and loved ones. I am not sure about you but Thanksgiving is the one day of the year when I do not care about butter, fat, calories or carbs. I usually eat way too much and feel gross for a few days after. I have signed up for a few virtual 5K's and 10K's over the next week to keep me on track for my half marathon (3 weekends away!). This also means I can eat more fried turkey!

A few November Virtual Runs anyone can participate in.

NYC Running Mama, Race for Recovery 5K-10K
All benefits go towards Hurricane Sandy Victims. Amazing prizes from all of your favorite brands. $20 minimum donation will go towards prize entry. This is a great way to give back to all of those in need.

Virtual races are a fun way to encourage friends who have never participated in a race before. Would you participate in a virtual run? If so, how would you choose which one? Medal, benefiting charity, price, prizes?\

  1. This is great! I am already registered to run NYC Running Mama, Race for Recovery 5K-10K! I may have to register for the Team Run Disney Virtual 5K since I will be missing the WDW Half marathon.
