Tink In Training Virtual 5K Race Recap

My blog/twitter friend Jennie over at Running Jennie is training for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon at Disneyland.  And she's doing something pretty awesome.  Instead of just paying the registration fee and  running she's decided to make this race about something bigger than herself and joined the Team in Training to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphomia Society.  She's hosting a virtual 5K/10K run and there's still time for you to sign up.  Click here!  There's lots of great prizes and even a cute little finishers necklace.  

This was my first "virtual race".  You run your favorite course whenever you want and then just report your time.  So, I headed out today with a bud at the gym and hit the loop.  It was a little cold and I was breaking in new shoes so it wasn't a PR for me.  I usually try really hard to get 10 min/miles when I do 5K races so I'm going to blame the shoes and the cold for the 11:10 pace.  Oh well.  It was still fun and something to make running the loop a little more interesting.  

Head over to Running Jennie and sign up! It's only $15 and it's for a good cause!
