[Virtual] SeaWheeze Half Marathon (2020)

The day I registered for a couple virtual races was the same day that I found out -- officially -- I'd be working from home for the entire summer. At least.

Challenges are one thing but an actual, paid-for, medal-in-the-mail virtual race is another.

Post-Race

I woke up at about 530am to get myself prepped.

To be very, very clear: After watching the race live feed for the better part of the weekend, and as I write this 48+ hours later the live feed is STILL going and 3 people are STILL racing, my two laps and 13.5 klicks seems pathetically inadequate. The runners are approaching 330 klicks and 49 hours and three people are still racing.

So, I participated.
