About This Activity

OK Guys!  Here we go!  The first ever FoF Virtual Race!  

First of all, let me tell you why I thought this would be a good idea.  I have heard many people say they would like to do a 5k “one day” but aren’t sure if they can do it.  I find the race environment very motivating but I understand how intimidating it can be if you have never done a race. This is a way that you can set out and do a 5k on your own, prove you can do it and not just earn a medal but maybe gain the confidence to participate in a locally organized one.  But even if you don’t care about running an actual race, what this amazing group has taught me is how important it is to set goals and not only be accountable, but have a support network. I’ve had a Fitbit for years but never been as successful as I am now that I am part of this community. 


Keep in mind that this "race" is done in the same spirit as our awesome group-I have declared this to be a 5K (3.1 miles) but truthfully, YOU decide what is a challenge to you: 5K (3.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles), Half Marathon (13.1).....the victory is in setting a goal and accomplishing it!


So how does it work?  It’s pretty simple.  Register and I will send you a package with a race number (not for anything other than it’s fun to have a number…feels official and a great souvenir) and a medal (Most virtual races are $25 and include a shirt, to keep costs down, I have put a shirt in the Zazzle store for those who want it as opposed to passing the cost on to everyone:  http://www.zazzle.com/2015_no_flower_left_behind_virtual_race_shirt-235141269039611358).  Between the dates of 1 and 12 April you set out either on a treadmill or on a course you have mapped out yourself and you complete your race. You don’t have to run it straight; I’ve never competed even in a “live” race that had a “no walk” rule!  Not walking may be your personal goal but it’s up to you-- the point is to cover that distance in one stretch.  When you are done, put that well earned medal around your neck and post a picture in the FoF group or on your own personal pages, or where ever you would like to brag that you DID IT!!!!



Event details and schedule

You must register prior to the end of Feb to guarantee your medal prior to race week but I will honor registrations through March but can’t promise you will receive you package in time!

Complete your race between April 1-12!
