I signed up to run the Incredibles Virtual Race in April. I opted to run it as one of my training tempo runs. I thought the challenge of it being an actual race would assist with motivation.
The Incredibles Virtual Run, was organized by Level Up Runs. This was the first virtual run I ever participated in, and I enjoyed the experience. I signed up for the 10K distance as it fit in great with the training I was doing for my half marathon.
Even though this race wasn’t “officially” timed, I had a goal to keep my pace under 10:00/mile. I ended meeting that goal, knowing that this was a “race” helped me to keep the pace up.
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 in the mail. It is very nice… and LARGE!
Level Up Runs has races lined up each month this summer. I plan on signing up each month to keep my motivation up since the racing calendar for live races in Houston is pretty bleak during the summer months.
