Today I ran in the Jellybean virtual race! Put on by Run With Jess, you could choose to run either the 5k or the 10k. Jess put in a ton of effort to get sponsors to donate some awesome prizes, and even made special bibs to print out. All in all, an awesome idea and so fun! Today I ran the 10k. Maybe not a great idea after my long run yesterday, but I decided not to "race" it and just run at an easy pace. Plus, it was sunny and 75 degrees once I started running...bad planning on my part. Final time was 59:09 (9:32 pace). Here am I before setting off:

I'll settle for some yummy tacos for dinner and the leftover nerds from yesterday. It was an off day and I managed to not eat the entire pack in one go. Yay me! I'll make sure to get rid of them tonight...so I have lots of room to put all the new Easter treats I'll start stockpiling tomorrow. Last weekend to buy Easter candy people--start stocking up on mini eggs for the next year!
Did you run the Jellybean virtual race?
You betcha! I'll be sending my time and picture over to Jess tonight...
Have you ever run a virtual race? What's the funniest/most original name for a race you've ever heard?
There is a race in Boston called the "Common's Man marathon"--it's 2.62 miles (1/10 of a marathon) around Boston. I love it, because you can go around saying you ran Boston marathon--ish. I'd love to run this one just to say it!
