Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K Virtual Race Recap

I feel like I signed up for this virtual race SO long ago and it finally happened! I think this may have been the first virtual race that I signed up for, but not the first that I have raced.



The 2nd Annual Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K was hosted by Adam at The Boring Runner. I'm not going to write very much in terms of a race recap since I ran this virtual race during our 3rd Freezeroo Series race today and I will write a full recap as soon as the photos are up.

I picked the first 3.12 miles of the Hearnish 10K because I knew that it would be the faster portion of the race. I'm just going to say that when Mike and I drove the course last night we had flashbacks of our half marathon. The course was HILLY!

The first half had two hills, more on that tomorrow, and my time was 30:33. The only reason that I got my time at exactly 3.12 miles is because a guy asked me how our time/pace was and when I looked at my watch my mileage said 3.12!


Gotta love the lighthouse calendar in the background

Thanks Adam for hosting this virtual race, it gave me the motivation I needed to get through the first half of my 10K!

  3. Great job! There are no hills here, and I kind of miss them... but not too much. :) But they are fantastic for training on!

    1. The hills weren't too bad, at least not for the first 5K! I don't mind them too much but my pace slows WAY down!
