Because I live here in San Diego, I am fortunate to be able to run organized events all year long. But even then, I still find myself wanting to run more. Unfortunately, travel across the country can get a bit expensive.
Today, I'm thankful for Virtual Runs. For very little money, I can sign up for events and run them "with" friends and running buddies all across the country. And even with a reduced cost, I still earn finisher's medals. And really, for me, it's all about the medal!
