Tomorrow, January 25, this my birthday--and the fourth annual Runs for Cookies Virtual 5K! As of right now, there are 366 people signed up to run or walk 5K tomorrow. I am going to be running it as well, but at a very easy pace to stick with my training schedule. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos and reading about how it went for all of you that are participating!
At the bottom of this post, I am posting the official "Finisher's Form". After you've completed your 5K, please take a minute to fill this out. It's fun to see the demographics of the participants once all the results are in! (I'll compile the results and share them on my blog in a couple of days). I will leave the form open until Tuesday evening, and hopefully, I'll get the results up on Wednesday.
Also, after your race, I would love for you to take a picture (a selfie, or a scenic pic from your virtual race, a pic of your GPS watch, whatever you'd like...) and then post it on social media using hashtag #RfCVirtual5K. It's easiest on Facebook, because you can see the whole group of photos there pretty easily. Feel free to share as many or as few details as you want about your race--was it in a blizzard? With a group of your friends? Dog in tow? (If you can't or don't want to post to social media, don't worry about it--there is no need to email me to let me know. This whole thing is just for fun.)

The last few years, I've spent most of my birthday responding to the social media posts. This year, I told Jerry that for my birthday, I want us to go on a date and leave our cell phones at home. We're going to dinner and a movie tomorrow evening, just like we used to when we were dating (and we didn't have cell phones back then! haha). Anyway, I'm going to be away from the computer and all social media tomorrow, but I will go through all the posts on Tuesday. Tuesday will feel like Christmas morning when I see the posts :)
I hope everyone has a fantastic race tomorrow, and I can't wait to read all about it! Here is the finisher's form:
