Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: what’s on your Fall bucket list? You can write about this or any running related topic. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
I’m going off topic this week to share my Back on my Feet Running Festival 10K Race Recap. Back on My Feet is a national organization operating in 14 major cities across the US, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.
I was familiar with the organization before hearing about the running festival so I was excited to sign up! What I loved most about the running festival is that they offered multiple distances – 5K, 10K, 15K and 30K. They also offered the 37.2 miles option – run all four running festival events over the month of September to receive a unique medal! Since I have been sticking to shorter distances for over a year, I decided to go for the 10K option.
I knew that this would be a treadmill run so I planned my Peloton stack the night before. For the bulk of my run, I selected two classes with amazing, upbeat playlists. I mainly focused on run/walk intervals for the both classes. This not only made the time fly by, but it also made the virtual race enjoyable too!
I received an update from the organization yesterday morning with the final numbers – the running festival had more than 900 participants and nearly $400,000 raised. What a great showing for their first virtual event! When I think about all of the good the organization can do with that money, it makes me heart so happy!
I would 100% recommend this running festival to anyone and I’m already planning to take part in it next year. I love to use my miles to support a great cause.
Tell me: Have you run any fun in-person or virtual races lately?
