Thanks to Nitmos and Non-runner Nancy, I just found out about Life Strides’ upcoming 1-mile virtual race. It takes place next week, September 1 through 7, and while Life Strides is hoping all the momentum of a virtual race will help him break the 5-minute mile, but thankfully he says that “all you have to do is run 1 mile as fast or as slow as you want.” Good! Because I don’t want to screw up marathon training by going for a record here and pulling or straining something to beat my best mile time (8:24). But I’ll strive for under 9:30. And then I’ll go run 4 more miles so that I get in my training runs for the week. Fair enough?
Now my challenge to my readers. I know there are lots of runners with friends who are also runners who read this blog. Will you join me? Post a comment and let me know you’re in! Then be sure to comment on Life Strides’ post, which is your virtual race registration.
After all, it’s always Easier With Friends!
