Back in February, I had done another virtual race. If you’ll remember, I also participated in the Tackle The Miles Virtual Race with the #13in2013 group. I may have mentioned that I did the Virtual Heart Throb, but I didn’t do an official review of it. I honestly don’t even know if I can remember how it went.
I know it was a rainy day outside. I had just gotten back from a class I believe, so I cheated on my work (Bally’s), and ran into 24 Hour Fitness by my house to get a quick 5K done on the treadmill.
All I remember really is talking to the desk guy about zombie books, powering through the run, jumping off the treadmill, running into a classmate and then heading right back out the door.
It wasn’t that eventful but I did wear my “I’m a Heart Throb” shirt.
It may have not been that eventful for me, but the entire event was a great deal for other people. The proceeds went to benefit The Arvada Community Food Bank.
This race was also put on by the 3W race series which is the same people that put together the Resolute Run I did the 1st of the year. I love this “company.” They put together super awesome events, have great communication and are super nice as well. I’m going to try to participate in all there events this year.
Anyway, the reason I am finally doing a post-race recap is because I got an email this week with our “placing.” Turned out I didn’t do too bad!
I placed 10th out of 72 other women racers! My time was 28:39; +5:31 behind the lead female. I have no idea what my age group placement is – they didn’t separate that information out. Overall, I’m really happy with the event, my time (I always run slower on a treadmill for the record), and I absolutely love my I’m a Heart Throb T-shirt!
HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY! I toast to you a green beer!
