"Run with the Minions!"

This was a fun virtual race to add into my training. When I heard about this race, I knew I wanted to run it. I mean, who doesn't love the Minions?

I ran it with some of the girls in my training group, and just had a great time. Even though the race itself lists the race as a 5k, you can really run any distance. However, they do want you to just log in a 5k time when you put in your results.

The pom beanie is definitely the best perk of the race. It's not something I can get much use out of here in sunny Central Florida, but I still think it's super cute and fun! The t-shirt is nice too, very soft and comfy. It has made a great jammies tee to wear around the house. :)

"Fun virtual challenge"

This is a fun, unique virtual race. You run or walk different mileage for each of three levels.

Level one is a 3 mile run. Level two is a 4 mile run. And, level four is 5 miles. This is a fun way to challenge yourself and have fun with a old-school game theme.

Each level completed gives you a digital badge, which is pretty neat. Looking forward to getting my race swag!!

This race series is a lot of fun. I've done Wonder Woman a couple of times, and was excited to run the Batman run this time around.

The swag is awesome, I love the hoodie, visor and medal. They even sent finish line tape! As a comic book fan, this was another great, fun race. I did the 10k with some of my running group one Saturday morning and had a blast. Hoping to run the Superman run next time!

Definitely get registered for this one if you love Batman and superheroes. :)

Due to the corona pandemic, this race became a virtual event. It's not the same running an Atlanta race in Orlando, but I was happy to be a part of it nonetheless.

I ran it with some of my running group and had a good time during the 9.3 miles. Was glad it wasn't as hot as it can be, as it was 58 degrees when I ran it on February 6th. Anything slightly cooler in the Sunshine State gets a thumbs up.

After the run, we enjoyed breakfast of acai bowls with chocolate! I always recommend the Hot Chocolate run series, as the swag is some of the best out there. I look forward to running the event in person again soon!

The 2021 Marathon Bahamas went virtual this year due to the covid pandemic. I was able to run the race in Orlando/Winter Park with a couple of runner friends. I was fortunate in that one of those friends is from the Bahamas and runs the actual half marathon there each year.

I had a great time hearing about the race from my friend, who shared information about what we might see running in the actual location. I'd really love to go there in 2022 if possible and experience the actual race event. Hearing that the event ends at the beach sounds amazing!

While the virtual race wasn't as fun as running in the actual Bahamas, it got me excited to put this half marathon race on my must-do bucket list!

Check out the video I made of some of my virtual race experience on my YouTube channel:
