July Virtual Races

This July, my family and I are heading into our fourth month of quarantining. For health reasons, we feel it’s best to stay home while the Covid cases in Florida rise again. But staying safe at home is making us a little stir crazy and lonely. 

As you can imagine, running is my escape. 

Now more than ever, running is my Me Time. 

Running is my cardio AND my therapy. 

Thankfully, there are plenty of July Virtual Races to help keep me motivated, running and sane, but broke with dash of heat exhaustion. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

As to be expected, there are plenty of Independence Day fun runs, however, July also means it’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH! ​​​​​​​Like in previous years, I’m hosting a virtual birthday run to celebrate. RSVP via Facebook here and run 4.9 miles on July 26 with me.

​​​​​​​From Christmas in July to out of this world runs, July delivers a ton of fun themes. Or maybe a classic movie will motivate you.Christmas in July to out of this world runs, July delivers a ton of fun themes. Or maybe a classic movie will motivate you.

If you are looking to run for a purpose, July also brings Black Lives Matters front and center along with a few other important causes. You will definitely find a reason to run this July.
