Race Recap: Alumni 5k 2017

This was my first virtual race ever!  This race was back in November.  I love this race, it was the first race I ever did, so I love any opportunity I have to complete it.  We were having a housewarming party for our new home and I wasn’t able to go. I was glad to see they had a virtual option.

Packet Pickup and Expo

No packet pickup for me, since it was virtual.  I got the package in the mail a few days before the race was to take place.

Race Day Conditions/Attire

I completed this race on the treadmill, so no special considerations for attire or race day conditions.

Race Time

It took me a few weeks after the race to actually complete this – oops!  I did this race after work one day and was completely exhausted, but knew I needed to get it done.  I walked this one and finished in 55:12.

After Party

Have you ever done a virtual race? How did you like it? Do you think they “count” as an actual race?
