That’s right, kids, as part of my 40th birthday (ACK!) celebration, I’m hosting my first Virtual Race. And it might come as a surprise to many of you, but there will be no beer requirements. Does that disappoint you?
“Mama Goes Masters” Virtual Race
When: August 25th (or whatever date between August 20-25 that works for you.)
Distance: You have three options:
- 4.0 miles in honor of turning 40
- 8.25 miles in honor of the actual day
- 40K if you dare. (If you are crazy enough *coughToniacough*, do it whenever in August it works for your training, just let me know when you plan to do it.)
What to do next? Comment and let me know that you are in. Next, send me an email at mom2shoo at gmail.com with your name, planned distance, and blog address if you have one. Feel free to share this on your blog too. The more the merrier.
Then, keep an eye on my blog for a race bib to wear.
Finally, run your race and send me your pictures, a link to the race report, and your finish time.
What’s in it for you? Everyone who runs will be listed on the final recap when I recover from my birthday celebrating. (Hey, I said you didn’t have to drink beer, that doesn’t mean I won’t.) In addition, there will be a winner for each distance, plus at least three random winners. Winnings will be things like Gu, nuun, etc, although I reserve the right to send beer glasses, socks, coffee or other things like that if the winner is someone who would appreciate that.
So, help make an old girl get excited about a new age group, ‘kay?
