Virtual Races

So I've discovered a new goal...Running bling.  I heard some of the other MRTT ladies talking about Running Bling - aka medals you get for doing some races, so now I'm determined to get some.

I saw a couple upcoming virtual races that are for a good cause and conveniently have bling, so I'm in.

Here are a couple I signed up for:

Barking Mad About Breast Cancer Virtual 10K

It's a 10K run - August 16 targeted date that you do on your own and this one the proceeds go to the Susan B Komen foundation.  This should be a good challenge for me.  I can run 5 miles...and it's in my August goals to do so.  I figure even if I run the first five and walk the last I'm good to go.


Books From Bug Virtual Half Marathon
Virtual half marathon sponsored by Between August 15, 2012 and August 31, 2012 get 13.1 miles completed in either a series of walks/runs or all at once. 

Definitely won't be all at once for me, but I'm game. :) Bling available.  No picture so it's a teaser.

The Great Cupcake Race Virtual 5k/10k
This is a 5K or 10K run on or about September 8, 2012.  Proceeds will benefit TNT (Team in Training).  It includes bling as well, but no image yet.  Another teaser.  Can't wait to see what it is!!

So that's a few items brewing in my world lately.  Looks like I'm going to be a busy girl!

  1. That is some sweet bling!!! i'm all about the bling! I'm in the process of making my own race medal's basically a Crate and Barrel floating shelf that I'm scewing cup hooks in the bottom for my holders but this way I can use the shelf for race photos. I want to run the Diva 1/2 at some point--what's better than awesome bling than a tiara AND a boa along with it??!! Keep up the good work!!!
