We’re Registered! For The Scooby Doo Virtual Run Challenge with Tristan!

Disclaimer: I received free entry to the Scooby Doo Virtual Run Series as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!


I used to do virtual races back in the day and then, for me personally, the trend kind of wore off. However, when I came across this opportunity, I couldn’t resist!

The Scooby Doo Virtual Run Series is hosted by the one and only Scooby Doo himself! Seriously, it’s promoted on the official Scooby Doo facebook and Instagram pages and using the real Scooby Doo images. This virtual race series is intended to be done with your doggie, although you don’t have to have a dog to do it!

I really wanted to do this race with my dog, Tristan, because he is getting older and I don’t foresee him being able to run with me much longer. So, we are signed up for the Scooby Doo Race Series Challenge which consists of TWO virtual races, the Doo Good 5k to be run in September and the Scoobtober 5k/10k in October.

With each race we’ll get swag, both for me and Tristan! The gear is super adorable with a shirt for me and a bandana for your him. Plus, we’ll EACH get a finisher’s medal! The best part is that part of the proceeds benefit the Best Friends Animal Society.


First up, the Doo Good 5k!
I plan on running the 5k during the last weekend of September. We’ll pick a course and tackle the 3.1 miles walking and running. I have seriously been training with Tristan and building up his mileage so we can run the Doo Good 5k.

Teaching him how to Instagram with the watch. 😉

Virtual Heart Throb 5K – WAY post race recap!

heart throb 5kBack 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!

Erin Go Braugh 7.77kToday, as this is schedule to post at 8am on Saturday morning, I am running in another 3W race…live! I am participating in the Erin Go Braugh 7.77K in Westminster, CO!

HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY! I toast to you a green beer!
