When I got the opportunity to run the DC Wonder Woman Run Series Virtual Run, I was excited to take part in it.
The SWAG that you receive is awesome, definitely a great way to reward yourself for your training and your efforts.
Why else would you run a virtual race?
If I haven’t convinced you enough with my half marathon tale, let me make a list for you here:
*Motivation to get out the door
*Something to put on your calendar and look forward to
*You pick the course!
*You pick the distance!
*You pick the time of day!
*You pick the weather!
*You pick the aid station hydration and nutrition
*You get to decide where the aid stations are
*You get to pick the post-race snacks
*You can recruit your friends and family to cheer for you and to support you
*You can make it into a party
*You can make it into a hard challenge–keep it on the down low, give it your all, see what you’ve got. You’ve got nothing to lose and no one has to know if it doesn’t turn out the way you want it.
*You choose whether or not to upload your results
*You can pick a race that supports a charity you believe in--The DC Wonder Woman Virtual Race supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
*You can pick a local race that you love and want to support–they are quite possibly struggling financially right now
