Why not add a few more miles?

So I have signed up for several virtual events now, enjoying them a lot... Being able to do them on my own turf (without driving anywhere), at my own time, and with whoever I want is great!

I was planning on doing a 1/2 marathon distance this weekend to fulfill the Frosty Half Marathon medal that should be on it's way to me, but today turned out to be a good walking day at work - getting 5 miles in (haven't been able to do that in a long time) and then the weather was BEAUTIFUL...  I decided with a 5 mile start, I only needed 8 more miles to get to a 1/2 marathon distance in a day...  I figured for my first virtual that it would be fine to do the miles in segments in the day (as others accumulate miles over a week or even a month to earn their medals)...

Well I did it - 5 at work at my trekdesk, 4.2 with Shay in the sunshine, and 4.1 with Jenna in the dark in Yacolt while Matthew was at Awana Games practice...

It feels great to have this completed!  Can't wait for the medal to arrive and me to be able to put it into my medal case of EARNED medals!  :)

Another virual 10k on the books

I am really enjoying doing these virtual events... I planned on doing this yesterday, but ended up building a loft bed for Jenna instead... But knew that I would make this a priority for today... And it worked...

I am a bit sore in my hip and IT band tonight which surprises me as it hasn't hurt that much lately...  and the physical therapist was talking about graduating me out of PT... We will see how it feels by the time I see him on Thursday...
