K9s United, a charity whose mission is close to my heart hosted 9K/5K run. I wanted to support them, however the run was about 2.5 hours from my house and on my work day. Luckily they had a virtual run option and so yesterday I completed the virtual run and coincidentally also received my medal and shirt in the mail on the same same day.
I’m really digging the virtual runs as the two that I have done thus far have the nicest looking medals. I do miss the jitters and excitement that comes with a mass start with a large group but I can see why these are an attractive option for many. Especially those just starting out running or who have a small running group.
