Reese's Run Virtual Race Report

Today I participated in a great virtual event hosted by Marci and Christy to raise money for Juvenile Arthritis. We were invited to run 4 miles or 4 kilometres in honour of Reese's 4th Birthday.

Happy Birthday Reese!


I set out to run my four miles in a light drizzle. I had planned to take it nice and slow after Yasso repeats with my clinic last night and wanting fresh legs for my half marathon coming up on Sunday. Unforunately, less than 10 minutes into the run I got caught in a huge downpour! I made a "mid-race" decision to drop down to the 4KM event.

By the time I got back, I was soaked to the bone... but still smiling. I snapped a quick pic when I walked in the door.



Results are in!



My pace is certainly nothing to write home about, but it was fun to get out there and run for a good cause. Thanks to Marci & Christy for organizing this great event and congrats to all the other Reese Runners.

B.A.A. 5K report coming up tomorrow. Promise!
