But that means I have no immediate goals, other than my half-marathon in October, and it seems so far away that it just doesn't feel all that pressing at the moment. I actually have a little wiggle room before hard-core training, and that's really tempting me to "take it easy."
That's a bad thing. My diet has been erratic at best lately, and I can't let my fitness slip. I refuse to totally fall off the wagon. So I thought it was time to make my Virtual 10k a concrete plan.
I've decided to make it a 5k/10k, because I would really LOVE for someone other than my sister and me to participate. But I know that not everyone has any desire to run a 10k, ever. So, should you chose to participate with us, you have the option of a 5k distance, as well.
I have some more work to do, but this is the basic low-down.
So, without further ado....
The Crayon Bomb Virtual 5k/10k
August 17-24, 2013
any time, any place you choose within that 8 day time-frame!
5k (3.1miles) or 10k (6.2 miles) must be completed in one stretch
You may walk, run, skip, crawl, dance... whatever gets you to the finish line
You may do it outside or on a treadmill
My Fun Suggestion
Leave a Crayon Bomb at your "finish line", wherever that may be (or somewhere else if you're finish line is your own home)
I will have a printable bib for the race, and a printout of the Crayon Bomb passage if you choose to leave a Crayon Bomb.
I am hoping to have a finishers "medal" if you would like one. It will be handmade... nothing fancy, but I'm kind of excited about it.
If I actually have interest from people, I might set up a Facebook group to keep track of you guys.
