I signed up to run the Dog Days Virtual Run in August. I opted for the 10k, and ran it as part of my training. My goal for this run was to run straight through with no walking water breaks. I ran it as part of the social run I do with Gooses Acre Running Club, I thought running in a group would make it seem more “racey”.
The Dog Days Virtual Run, was organized by Level Up Runs. The run supported Second Chance Dog rescue – for each entry they donated a toy, blanket, or dog bowl. This was my 5th virtual run I have participated in, and I enjoyed this experience as much as the first.
It was a typical warm Houston day, and my run was in the heat of it. Fortunately, we got a cooling shower not too long before I ran, that did nothing to help with humidity. My route was flat with a few small hills on bridges. I took an easy pace and accomplished my goal of running straight through.
When I finished, I entered in my details into the “Submit Your Results” area on levelupruns.com for accountability purposes.
A few weeks later my medal came. I’m really impress at the quality of the medals from Level Up Runs.
Coming up this month is a Harry Potter themed run – the “I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good”
Isn’t the medal awesome? I plan on running the 5k virtually with my niece Hannah. Who else is in? You can save 10% on registration by using code SAVE10 when you register here.
