yesterday i took part in the ‘run across america’
a virtual 5k race
that takes place all over the country,
with the usual
friendly competition, medals, t-shirts
only each person chooses their own route.
registration fees, (free for teachers)
nonprofits currently tackling big challenges.
to join the Fall 5k, you simply register on the site,
download the running app,
put on your shoes on October 3rd, activate the app, and go.
after you’re done running/walking,
you’ll see how you performed versus others all over the country.
(as of this writing, i’m ranked 4,770th, so -)
your race has to start and end on October 3rd,
but your timing is up to you.
to make sure everyone across the country
has time to get the race done in their own time zone,
you can start any time after 12:01am EDT
and need to be done by 11:59pm Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time.
that gives you 30 hours to get your 5 km done
and that is my kind of race!
‘some walks you have to take alone.’
