Run Sea to Shining Sea Virtual Races

Apparently, my gym offers a re-evaluation with a personal trainer every 6 weeks, and a nurse re-evaluation who’ll take my BP, HR, body fat percentage + measurements 4 times a year. But have I been taking advantage of this perk?

No. I haven’t had it done since I first joined last year.

Why is this, you ask? The personal trainer I met with asked the same thing yesterday.
F: Well, I just finished my first year of residency–
J: –say no more! I see why now.

We had a good laugh over that.

Most of you probably know I’m not much of a runner (a “one and done,” if you will), but I am an avid walker and also love hiking! I know a lot of my readers love to run, so I have a special guest post from Kristy about the Sea to Shining Sea Virtual Races! :]

Do you love to Run, Walk or Hike? Maybe this Virtual Race is one you should consider.

What is a Virtual Race?

Runners, walkers, and hikers sign up for a distance they want to conquer. Come race week, participants pick the course of their choice, any day that fits their schedule, at go at it any pace. Efforts and completion of Virtual Races are rewarded similar to a regular road race, a race t-shirt and beautiful unique finishers medallion are sent to you to show off accomplishments and add to your race bling collections.

YOU Can Design YOUR Perfect Course.

Yes, you can do the Virtual Race in the comfort of your home or gym on a treadmill or on a track, around your neighborhood or wherever fits your schedule. But many don’t realize you can also take your virtual race to the trails, hike your way to your goal distance too.

Love unique finishers medallions?

Run Sea to Shining Sea created a unique medallion all participants will earn. Here is a preview of the design (Note: the actual medal will be a nice quality heavier nickel metal about 3 inches wide with a navy blue splash of color.)

Still Wondering Why You Should Participate?

* Use it as a training run for a fall race you are gearing towards.

* To motivate you to stay active or to become active.

* As an excuse to get a group of friends together for some healthy competition.

* Compete against yourself.

* Compete in your own way with no restrictions, run during the time of day and day of the week that works best for your schedule.

* It supports American small businesses, medal creation, and t-shirt screen printing all done by American based companies. In addition, the event project itself is for a college thesis project so you’ll be helping a runner get her Recreational Management degree!

* Earn a new medallion to add to your race accomplishment displays.

    Oh gosh, I’m SO not a runner. I’m trying to get out and walk more though.

    This is a fun idea though!
