Virtual 5k winners....

Hi everyone - Here is the Virtual 5k results for the "I just felt like Running" Virtual 5k.  I posted the times next to your name so you can see where you stand.  As you will see, some of the participants did not do their run.  I debated about taking them off but decided not to.  As you will see, it worked out anyway because the winners all posted times.  As far as the prizes, those were chosen from a random generated number.

I think everyone that posted had a really great time with this.  I know that I enjoyed doing it.  Here are some of the posts that people did proving they really did feel like running!
