Valentine Virtual Race - Virtual Race Recap

I did this virtual race as a Running on the Wall Athlete and was given free entry. The race report and review are purely my own thoughts. 

On February 5th, nine days before Valentine's Day, I ran my 10K Valentine Virtual Race for my buddy. It wasn't my fastest 10K with an overall pace of 9'25" but it was my longest run since the Maui Oceanfront Marathon and that made me happy. And I ran it early as I was in the middle of the busiest time of work. So busy that it has taken me this long to tell you about it!

Instead of filling you in on the run details (mainly because they have become foggy and a run is a run, right?), today I am going to tell you about the bling that comes with this race.

I got an awesome tank top and in all honesty, I prefer their tanks over the t-shirts but I am not a t-shirt type of gal. I love my tank tops and am often in them. Usually fitted ones with bra top inserts but this race tank is perfect for running. I am getting older and more modest these days, so I love wearing a light weight tank over my running bra top. What can I say?

They also provide you with a race bib for every single virtual race. I do not run in them but give them to my buddy with the race date, distance, time, and overall pace on the back to make it seem more official.

You also get a medal with each virtual race and some provide you with the option to purchase a second medal. I like this! You know I want to give one to my buddy!

This race also came with a cute zipper charm but I must of yanked mine funny when throwing my bag in the closet the other day as it is falling off. But I took a good look at it and see what I need to do to fix it so no big deal.

There was also a purple wrist thing that says RUNNING that has an opening on the back. For me, I do not see how I could use this but do see it may be a nice hiding place for something while you run. It does fit snugly on my wrist but darling daughter fell in love with it so it is hers now!

And I know it isn't pictured, but the race also came with a RUN bumper sticker that is cute but black. I am not sure what I am going to do with this right now. I have used decals from a previous race to make a framed art so you can see sometimes I like to think outside of the box.

For $29.99, this is really a good deal and the second medal is $4.99 and as a race director who purchases medals, that is a realistic cost for such a cute medal. You can also add on shirts, arm sleeves, charms, etc. with this and some of their other races so there are lots of options to find what is the perfect fit for you.

I have done other races with them too and you can check those out below:

I would really love to to their Lucky You 10K and Run Mommy Run 10K too. And don't fret, they have 5K options as well.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for all racing opportunities.
