2015 Runs for Cookies Virtual 5K RESULTS

Ohmygoodness, this post took me all day to put together, and in the eleventh hour, Blogger stopped working for some reason. It was super frustrating, but everything is good to go now (I hope).

Like last year, I have to truncate this post, because of the long list of names (it messed up my blog feed a couple of years ago). So I apologize if you're viewing this on a reader, because you'll have to click through to view it.

First--the winners of the prizes! The odds of winning one of the prizes were much better than when I do a typical giveaway. The Garmin, for example, had just over 200 entries; if I had just posted it as a giveaway, rather than a virtual 5K prize, there would be well over 1,000! Here are the winners:

Aqua Jogger belt- Michele Anderson
Fitbit Zip- Jennifer Curry
Garmin Forerunner 10- Megan K.

Congratulations ladies! I've sent each of you an email. Great job on hitting your 5K goals, and I hope you enjoy your prizes!

I put together a slideshow of the pictures I pulled from Facebook and Twitter. I didn't include the Instagram ones, because Instagram makes it really difficult to save photos. What I hoped would be a quick project ended up being one big mess...


After downloading each photo (one by one), I put together the slideshow. Then when I went to upload it to Blogger, it was too large. So I tried to upload it to Vimeo, and the music was copyrighted. I was so frustrated (and this was now approaching 7:00 pm) that I just uploaded it without music. So, it's totally boring without the music, but if you'd like to see most of the photos here in one spot, it's worth watching. Maybe just play some upbeat music while you watch it ;)


2015 Runs for Cookies Virtual 5K
from Katie Foster on Vimeo.


Here are some fun facts about the race: There were 922 people that signed up (the actual number should probably be slightly lower, due to a few duplicates), and 486 finishers (who filled out the race report; actual number may be slightly higher). So roughly 53% of the people that signed up actually completed the race, which is pretty good! I was hoping for 50+%. The majority of people did the race outdoors this weekend (last year, the treadmill won--likely due to the polar vortex!).



Here are some blogs and/or race reports from several finishers:

Congratulations to EVERYONE who participated! I can't say it enough: I love that I have so many people who celebrate my birthday with me each year :)

I've spent WAY too much time doing blog stuff the past few days, so I'm going to stay away from the computer tomorrow. I need a mental break after the technical issues I dealt with today. I have a really unique new puzzle to work on, so hopefully it'll be done and I can show it off on Thursday!

  1. It makes me so happy to be part of such a beautiful community! Thanks for the time you spent on this post Katie, I absolutely LOVED the video- it actually brought tears to my eyes thinking about everyone who came together for this. You are an amazing person to have inspired us all. Sending a huge internet hug out to the RfC family! Thank you Katie, and happy birthday!

  4. Top ten in my age group, I'll take that!

    So many sub-25 minute finishes across all age groups. Gets me fired up to tighten my time!

  5. The lady who evidently did your 5K with a walker, just amazes me. No excuses for me not to have done it. I signed up and then could not get motivated. That seems to be my story lately. But if a lady who needs a walker can do it, I really need to get off my butt!

  6. I had so much fun with the 5k, Katie! I made T-shirts for a friend and myself and everything. I was so proud of completing it just because I've been sick the last few weeks and having the 5k was such a huge motivator for me to fit in a work out at the end of the day. I look forward to doing it next year too!

  10. This was my first virtual run and it was lots of fun. I have the bib with my other ones from races and I actually did a run on Saturday and long walk on Sunday, so I got twice the benefits and miles. I'm in for 2016!

  12. This was my first 5K. I had a lot of fun and it was neat seeing the pictures and race results (I placed 4th in my age group!). Thanks Katie (and everyone else) for making this such an awesome experience!!
