I love virtual races. I do several of them a year. It's not as much fun as in person racing, but I still like participating. I take them seriously, mapping my course and recording my time.
I think next year I will be organizing a virtual race to raise money for a clinic that treats people with no insurance for a $15 office visit. Everything is still in the planning stages, but I am excited. My daughter who has her masters in public administration is on board to help with the organizing. Today was spent pricing shirts and medals.
Race won't be until next fall. I don't want to rush things - if I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right!
