Happy Veteran's Day

Today I changed my regular 5 miler and instead ran the National Veterans Day 11k Virtual Race.  It was really cold outside today and a little windy.

I got an instant PR since I've never run an 11k race before.  You get a T-shirt, a finisher's pin and a finisher's medal as well!  Wow!  I signed up at the last minute so I don't have anything yet.  I also get to post my results on their website and they will have a full list of the results next week.  This is quite the organized virtual race.

Time:  55:32 for 11k.

I took a picture of my neighbor's tree after my run since it was so nice.  Don't let this fool you though, it was cold!

Winter running - NO!

Did you race today or have to work?

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!!


  1. I definitely have to work today. Luckily I have an awesome tree like that outside of my window at work, so it's not a total loss :).

  2. I am racing tomorrow, so today is a rest day. My hubby has Monday off.

  3. Great job on the PR ... those are the kind I like! So much respect for all of the vets and those who serve our country - great post Jeff.

  4. I thought about running this morning but opted to take the car in for service......... HA

  5. Awesomeness!! I ran the one one of the non virtual ones (in San Jose) and had a fantastic time. I've not written up my report yet but they did a good job for an inaugural race run in 9 cities and virtually! And like you, I PR'd cuz I've never done an 11k. But I messed up my garmin big time so I've got to wait for the official results.

  6. Hey Jeff! Love your last picture with the pretty tree crown behind you! It almost looks like you Photoshopped yourself in the pic. Hope you have a great weekend!
