It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
My Topic today is: Virtual Racing.
When there aren’t any races, there are so many reasons to run a virtual race. In fact, I can’t think of any reason NOT to sign up for one.
But here are my five reasons to Go Virtual:
1.You have NO scheduled races.
In other words, these races will not interfere with your training plan.
2.Many virtual races are FREE.
It will not cost you anything to sign up. And if you get injured and can’t do the race, you will not lose any money.
3.You can add to your SWAG collection.
If you do pay to sign up for a virtual race, they often send you awesome swag such as cool medals, shirts, glasses, etc.
4.It will MOTIVATE you to get out there and run or walk the miles.
Especially if others have signed up or you join a FB group for that race. Races, virtual or not, will make you more accountable to being active.
5.Charities and Running Companies NEED your money..
When this is over, we do want to have races. The companies that organize them are losing a lot of money now. The charities that have been supported by racing are not getting money now.
**You can do the races ANY TIME and ANYWHERE. And they will not get CANCELLED.
If the weather is not ideal, just change the time or date of the race. You can also pick a scenic course or a flat course…whatever pleases you.
Happy Running! Have you run any virtual races? Which ones have your enjoyed? Please share.
