What an awesome event to take part in! The Inspiration 4 Miler was a run in honor of the first ever all civilian space mission. A fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the goal of the run was to raise funds for St. Jude and awareness of the mission.
I loved following along with the Netflix series leading up to blast off and I felt connected with the four civilians on the trip (one being a medical professional who was a patient at St. Jude as a child).
I eagerly tuned into the live stream on the internet to watch them go into space and planned my run for the weekend they returned. It felt bigger than just a regular virtual race and I was glad to be a part of it.
Love the hat and medal swag. The shirt was too large for me, which is always something that can happen with a virtual race.
