Today I ran the Christmas Virtual 10K!! I was very excited to run knowing other people were running “with” me. Sometime within a 3 day period, others would be doing exactly what I was doing.
Due to family logistics, we celebrated Christmas this morning. It was wonderful like you’d expect. We made a huge breakfast, hung out in pj’s and the kids played with their new stuff. Then at around one I started getting the kids bikes out and ready.
Isn’t that what everyone does on Christmas?? It was about 45* and sunny. 8 of my kids, my husband Chris and my mother in law Donna caravaned to a nearby park where you can pick up the bike path here in Reno. For my virtual 10K naturally.
Chris ran 5 miles and five kids biked. One with him, 4 with me. My son Taylor crewed me so I didn’t carry water, my daughter Alana took over camera duty. Nicolas biked in his own world and Gabrielle was my running commentary. It was beautiful and I love having the kids with me when I run. Donna walked and played in the park with the other 3 kids.
I PR’d on my 10K! Averaged 8:43 minute miles!!! (My last PR was 8:51) Yay! My Christmas running “outfit”was superb and other people smiled and talked about it when I was running by. We hollered “Merry Christmas” to everyone we saw.
To all of you, may you have a merry Christmas and PR!!
