|Medal for National Veterans Day Run|
for both real and virtual 11K finishers.
I admit this sort of thing has a certain appeal to me. I'm obviously very comfortable in a virtual setting.* The external perks are the same for the most part. Plus it fits very well within my schedule. The down side is missing out on the whole race atmosphere; it almost feels like a cop-out not to go with other people--isn't that just a ... run?
Is the bling worth it? Maybe a little. I probably can get Miss involved in "awarding" me (although she will probably want to run off with the medal herself). I think I'm going to do a blend of both Real and Virtual races this year just to keep me moving.
I will definitely Run My Birthday.
* It's how I met my husband and completed the bulk of my graduate degree while working full time. Don't judge me.
