Women Rock ended up letting people exchange their necklaces for medals which I did. My medal for the virtual arrived yesterday and I felt like I had to earn it since I'd already gotten one for the half. So this morning I set out for a 10k (my longest run since the half). I started off slow but pretty soon realized I was on track for a PB. I ended up finishing in 58:49. My last 10k (an actual race I finished in 1:00:50.
I went home put on my medal and stretched out. I kept it on when I went to pick up my son. I had put a jacket on over so no one knew it was there but me, but it still felt good, knowing what I had accomplished.
There are tons of virtual runs available at varying distances. I find most of them on Facebook and there are races for everyone. Tons of different charities and themes. A lot of theme are a bit too commercial for my tastes - Disney characters, Despicable Me, that kind of stuff. I have no problem with getting a Disney medal if I run a Disney race, but for a virtual I like the ones that are more unique or have to do with the cause or season. Either way there are definitely enough options to keep you motivated for a low cost.
