The Best Damn Race in New Orleans, originally scheduled for March 22, 2020, was one of many events that had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Those who had registered for the physical event had the choice to defer or transfer to a future event, or run the virtual. After all those registrants were taken care of, the race director still had a lot of swag left over. I signed up and got myself an affordable virtual race with some nice swag.
Virtual Race Goal
I've been having a lot of aches and pains. I wasn't sure when I was going to run this. Memorial Day morning Arthur and I went for a walk in the neighborhood in a light rain. After our 3.6 mile walk, I thought I felt pretty good and the rain was nice, so I decided on the spot to knock out this virtual run, without a time goal in mind.
Race Day: May 25, 2020
It was about 81°F with an overcast sky that really opened up in the second half of my run.
