Running a 1/2 in a pool??

Monday, October 29, 2012

I had signed up for a virtual 1/2 marathon.

Basically it is a fundraiser that will give me a shirt, medal and bragging rights without them having to take on the cost of putting on a race. Pretty smart actually.

I'm thinking about doing in the pool. Running something like 400 laps (I may or may not have gotten the math right) in the pool instead of going out in this yucky weather again.

Has any of my Spark Friends tried this before?? I can't be a pioneer in this.

But if I am do I get any kind of cash prize???

But if you have taken something like this on any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks OFFANDAWAY!

I knew I couldn't be the first to think of such things.

I would do this race in a heartbeat if they were closer!

    I commend your courage! I only just signed up to do a virtual 5K, not at sure how that is going to turn out! I do know it's not starting off right, today is my day 1 and we are in the middle of Hurricane Sandy. Good luck to you!

    Hmm. I would say you get "Most Unusual Location for a Half" prize, but as that may or may not be a category, you might not get anything other than bragging rights.

Perhaps contact NASA. Maybe some MIR astronauts may want to join you in the wierdness?
