Virtual "Half & Half" Race/Run

TODAY was the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!  ~gasp~

I have a hard time training in the summer months.  And I really have a hard time racing, because the races always start at 7 or 8am, and frankly, it's hot.  Or, the irony will be that it's cool on a Friday, and 98 on a Saturday when the race is supposed to go down.  So, I thought a fun way to celebrate the summer "anti-race" season is that I would host a VIRTUAL RACE, "about" Halfway through the summer.  can't be exact, because everyone has a different schedule.  I just picked the week of July 15th because that looks about right on our calendar.

The details...

When:  Thursday July 15, Friday July 16, Saturday July 17 or Sunday July 18 - hopefully you'll have some good temps to work with on at least one of those days!

Distance:  5K or Half Marathon

Cost:  FREE!

What you need to do:  Anytime starting July 15 through the end of the day July 18, pick your course, and run your "HALF" race.  When you're done, e-mail me a link to your race report and your finish time!

What will you get?:  Uh, not a whole heck of alot, except the PRIDE that goes with running Half a Race, a LINK to my Half&Half Recap... and a prize for the Fastest Half Marathon, the Fastest Half 10K (5K), and The Runner who demonstrates that they OVER CAME the biggest running handicap to complete their race... be it temperature or some other handicap:  H will be the judge.  Each winner will win... prize to be determined later.  But think along the lines of a Gu or two, or Cliff Blocks, or Nuun.

Registration is open to all followers of NofSahmof3 and goes through Tuesday July 6th.

1) Become a follower of the Nofsahm Blog.
2) Please e-mail your registration to:  nmomof3 (at) gmail (dot) com  ... and by the way, when you register, let me know who you are, if you're attached to a blog, & what race distance you choose.  Happy Running!

Hmmm... I might have to do this. Question: do we have to wear the fancy socks for this one? I totally missed out on that for Tonia's Virtual race (what a dork I am!)

no fancy socks are not required. but, tall socks are always sexy with the skirt, so, if you need to wear them, then game on...

I may be in England but you count me in, funky long socks and all,I have a lovely multi coloured stripped pair that I think would look rather fetching, great idea, can't wait.
