After hearing about some virtual races over facebook, I decided to sign up for one (make that 4) to tackle myself as I prep for a charity 5K walk that I’m doing in December.
Plus earning some bling doesn’t hurt either, and it’s a great cross trainer too boot.
Would you take part in a virtual 5K?
This is one of my favourite races to photograph. Since this year’s race happened to be the same day as my dragonboat practice, it meant I didn’t have to travel into town twice that weekend, but also meant that I was gonna be missing a few of the early morning heats (races) but catch the rest of the afternoon heats.
Thanks to mother nature, the day before was beautiful and of course the day were I have practice it was raining buckets and the wind just went through your bones if you weren’t moving.
I wished I could have stayed longer to watch the rest of that heat and more of the afternoon heats but I just could not keep myself warm. (it took a few hours after I got home to warm up my core again)

I’m hoping that the next local Outrigger race will have nicer weather.
