Anyone who knows me, knows I love to run. What I love just as much as the actual run, is race bling! If there is a cool medal involved, you can probably find me there! Whether it’s a medal the size of your head or just something truly unique, I want to add it to my collection.
However, one thing I enjoy just as much is virtual races!
Why would I love virtual races?
Because I can earn bling for my training runs! If I am going to be running anyway to train for a half marathon, and I can sign up for a virtual run that will give me some bling for those training efforts, I’m there!
What is a Virtual run?
I’m glad you asked! A virtual run is a race (usually any distance between a 5k to a half marathon) in which sign up and then run your miles anywhere, anytime you choose, within a specified period of time. These races usually benefit a certain cause or organization and can bring people from all over the world “together” to run!
I have done several virtual runs over the last few years and was excite to be selected to run and promote the Scooby Doo-Good series! This series includes a race in both September and October!
For the September race, I have teamed up with my neighbor dog Koda for the 5k! We have spent time running as well as cross training – throwing the ball helps me build that upper body/arm strength and it it awesome sprint work for Koda!
We will hit the streets for our official run and complete this challenge while having some fun! I have not told Koda this, but he has some serious race swag heading his way once he finishes his race! Package includes a shirt and medal for you as well as a dog tag medal for him, as well as a sweet handkerchief!
Check out the event here! Come join the doggone good fun, earn yourself and your favorite canine some epic swag and share your photos! Scooby and the gang would love for you to share photos and let them know how you completed your run when you tag them at #ScoobyDooRun!
