Announcing 10k on the 10th

It finally came to me what we need for our club. A virtual race of course. For those of you struggling with motivation and needing a carrot, get your club out, start beating on the bad attitude and the negative self-talk, and get this bad boy on your calendar.

Love it. I'll be there.

Frayed Laces said...

Hmmm....I am tempted......okay, I'm in. Granted, it will be super slow since I probably won't have even run that distance prior to, but that is my first week of the "off the prescribed recovery runs" plan. What a great way to celebrate my healing!

Michelle said...

Cool!

That's the weekend after my HM, but I will try to do it! :)

K80K said...

Count me in!

Jess said...

I'm in!

Kristina said...

Rock on! I'm in!

Tri+Umph said...

Sweet! I have a 10K scheduled on the 11th, assuming this knee heals up (its feeling better!).

The real kicker? Its in Hawaii, hells yes!

Bob A said...

I'm running a 10K race this weekend (Richmond Monument 10K) -- can that count? :-D I'm in.

E said...

I'm in!

Andrew is getting fit said...

I'm tempted!

Razz said...

I'm all in.

Ax said...

Sweet! I love this stuff, Nancy! I'm totally in!

zanne said...

i'm in! ooh - it will be my first race since the marathon.

P.O.M. said...

I'm diong a half marathon on May 11th - but since I know how flexible and AWESOME the Race Coordintor is - I will use the 10K split time as my time - but a day late :)

audgepodge said...

What a great idea! And can I just say THANKS for making it a 10K, and not 10 miles!

chia said...

I guess that decides what distance I'm doing in this race here. All my buds signed up for the 5K but I kind of wanted to do the 10K.

So it's a virtual-unvirtual race day for me :-)

The Laminator said...

Oh...you know i've been waiting forever for this...since I sat out the last one...didn't want to say anything. Sign me up. Thanks, Nancy!

Topher said...

Oh, you almost got me. Then I remembered it's April Fools. You silly girl, you thought you could trick us into running again, but you can't fool me.

The funny thing is all these suckers commenting are going to be waking up early on a Saturday to run while I'll be eating Fruit Loops and watching Cartoons.

David H. said...

I'm not signing up until race day. :) Will 10 miles on a bike count? I don't know if my feet will want to go that far by then.

Michelle said...

IN!!!

Just wanna make sure, the 10th is a thursday! So, what i just go out and run a 10K? On my own? OK, IN!

Michelle

J~Mom said...

IN!!!

Megan Hall said...

Sweet! A great reason to be running again a couple weeks after the marathon, and a good way to set my pacing for non-virtual 10k training before I have to beat my coworkers. Thanks, RD Nancy!

RunnerGirl said...

If my knee is better by then I'm in for sure. If its not, I'll just have to do the 10k on my bike :)

Kent said...

Add one more name (mine) to the newly healed and signing up list...

Marcy said...

I'll be there ;-) I don't think anything else is going on . . .

Thanks Nancy! ;D

Unknown said...

Anyone want to join me on a 12K on the 12th of April??

I think we might be doing run for the zoo on the 10th of may weekend (11th probably) in which case i will not only do a 10K, but a chip timed one. Woot!

Viv said...

Yee Haw!!
Where is packet pick up??
I am in!

Viv said...

I am in!

teacherwoman said...

I think it's a great idea! it might be just what I need the weekend before my half marathon! :)

Bev said...

Love the graphic! I'm in! My son's t-ball is going to take up all my April and May Saturday morning race times, so this virtual race will fit in nicely.

Lily on the Road said...

10K! on the 10th, I'm in, Thanks for not making it 25K on the 25th.

My Marathon is on the 25th so count me in!!!

Nibbles said...

Nifty! I think I'm in! Thanks, Ms. Awesome Race Director!

jahowie said...

I'll be there!! Cool logo too. :-)

Sarah said...

I'm in! I'll be in Puerto Rico on the 10th, but I'll run my 10K...say maybe on the 8th! : )

Robert Barker said...

Great idea Nancy.

Holly said...

What a fun idea to have a virtual race. Love it! I might be able to do a 10K on the 10th of May--I'd ahve to start EARLY because it will be hot here in May. Who am I kidding? It already is!

Found you through Brianna and wanted to say hi. So, hi!

Jess said...

Great idea Nancy!

ws said...

I will be running by then. I'm sure of it.

Mendy said...

Crap, crap, crappola.

I can't. However, that day I'll be doing a 5K at the end of my 750m swim, and 11 mile bike. :-)

Mendy said...

Hey Nancy! I'll do it the day after as a recovery run. :-) It'll be good for me.

GREAT! It's on the calendar now!

Jeff said...

Thanks for the note, Nancy.

I'll give a tentative yes. Will be less than a week after my first full marathon, but I should be able to handle 10k by then.

Brooke said...

Oh I'm so there!!!!

Jamie said...

Dang it - I am standing up in a wedding that day! Ugh my May I tell you. I am going to try and make some time though.

RunnerMom said...

If I can still move my legs after my half on April 26th, I'll be happy to do 10K on the 10th!

Ben G said...

I would love it-except I graduate from college that day-ok maybe I will get my 10K in that evening, who am I kidding.

J said...

Oh, I am so in on that one! Do we get a club in our goodie bag??

Nitmos said...

Yes, I will attempt to do this. I just wish there was someway to remember have far and on what day we are to run. I forget easily.

Kaeti said...

Might be just the thing I need.

Pokey said...

LUV IT, LUUUUUUUUUUUV IT!!

I'm in :)

thebets said...

Great idea! Count me in!

Midwest said...

Like POM, I'm running a half on the 11th. I'm totally going to give you my best 10K split. ;)

Unknown said...

I too have a half marathon on the 11th, however, my training schedule calls for an 8-15K "tuneup" race on the 9th. I'll either use that, or if I have a better 10K split for the half, I'll use that! (Assuming that's okay with the race director. I know what an ogre she is!)

Sarah Kathryn said...

How fun!!! I'm in! Is it a 10k on the 10th of April or May? I'm going to re-read the post, so if this question is already answered feel free to club me over the head. For real.

Congratulations on the 10k you did - you did awesome!! Especially on a HILL. We don't even know what a hill IS in FL. We have to go find man-made ones...

DawnB said...

I'm in

zanne said...

oh! the 10th of MAY!!!! i thought it was April. no matter - i'm still in. and this is good - i'll be faster in May than i would have been in 6 days. phew!

RunToTheFinish said...

I'm really getting along with my bad attitude right now though..do I have to put it away??

Thanks for the advice on crazy lady, I have submitted her to the BBB

Andria said...

Okay. This time, I'm actually going to get it done! Count me in! :D

Runner Leana said...

I'm signed up for a 10K on the 11th... I'm assuming we can run anytime that weekend? If so, I'm there!
