I have been following a gal's blog that has lost a lot of weight & she just started hosting virtual 5k events each month. I signed up for January's and got the kids to go with me for this month - Shay walking and Matthew on a bike (Jenna was at a friend's house). Even though it was raining, we still had fun.
I looked more online and found even more of them and ones that include a medals :) I love earning medals so it was a great concept. I found some that charged as little as $10 to get a medal and some that charged as much as $50 to get a medal and a tshirt... But the proceeds of most end up going to some sort of charity so it is all good. (some even tax deductible!)
The next one I have is to do a 10k between now and the 12th of February for Mardi Gras... I will report back after I get that done! :)
