Not that they will ever replace IRL races but added to the mix, they are just plan fun.
Last week I did a 3.7 mile one with Run with Jess to celebrate her 37th birthday. She sent out everyone these cute bibs to wear:
|It was early and I'm not that bright|
My next virtual race is next week, thru Spark People.
|Wow - over 9000 people participating!|
No prizes except for spark points, but those are like gold on the site :D
Today I signed up for the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge 2011. It's much more than just a race. It's based on workout in general, something to help motivate us during the holidays.

Since my Half training class will be ending soon, I am a little worried that I won't stick with it. Plus at some point I need to get more serious about cross-training and strength training. I'm highly motivated when it comes to these types of events. Basically if people are watching, I tend to be less lazy!
