Virtual 5K — Round 2 (And a Giveaway!)

We’re doing it again! We’re having another Virtual 5K and we want YOU to participate!

What is a Virtual 5K … well, it’s just this: You go out and walk, jog, sprint, skip, roller blade (do people still do that?) or any combination there of for 5K (3.1 miles). You can do this wherever you are, whenever works best for you (within the date time frame) and with whom ever you want! We just ask that you let us know you are participating and take a picture of yourself with The Journey Virtual 5K race bib {See below} and send it to us! There is no cost. There is a small prize for one random person who participates!

Virtual 5K Round 2 was created to coincide with those participating in the Couch to 5K Challenge this summer. But, even if you didn’t participate in the challenge, you are still welcome to join the 5K! Please join at whatever fitness level you are able to do! I (Cori) have been doing the Couch to 5K running plan, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to run an entire 5K. I think I could probably do it, but Jessica and I are doing the Warrior Dash on September 7, so I don’t want to push myself too hard and injure myself. I will likely do a run-walk combo when I do my Virtual 5K.

Our first Virtual 5K and Journey Meet-Up was held in April and we had such a fun time seeing everyone’s pictures!

The Journey's first Virtual 5K in April.

So, here are the details:

5K2Date: August 9 — 18

Yep. That’s a huge time frame! Why? It’s summer and people are busy and have things scheduled. The idea here is to make it flexible enough for you to participate. And, if you are already signed up for a different 5K in that time frame, it counts!
