Virtual 4th of July 4 Miler (Gone For A Run)

On Friday, I completed Gone For A Run's All 4 Run Virtual 4th of July race! Since I was off of work on Friday, I decided to wake up early (hah) and run before the temperatures became too warm outside.


My plan for this run was to take it easy since I had another 4 mile race the following day. I also planned to run around the same time as my race the following day, to get a feel for the temperature/humidity.


Ugh. It was hot and incredibly humid. 


I managed to keep a pace just below a 10 minute mile. In addition to the heat, my legs were incredibly sore from the Tone It Up Kettlebell workout I did on TUESDAY. Y'all - I thought I was doing enough squats and lunges on my own and hello...apparently not. I see more kettlebells in my future!



Look who I spotted during my run! He decided to eat breakfast early to avoid the crazy heat of the day, too! :)


After returning home, I awarded myself with this lovely medal and called it a day! :) Overall I had a fun race and enjoyed the experience!

Gone For A Run puts on many great events throughout the year - check out their Virtual Race Series here. Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for all the latest and greatest product/race information!

As a Gone For A Run Ambassador, I received free entry into this virtual race. All opinions expressed are my own. :)

Did your weekend plans include a 4th of July race/run?

  2. I refuse to race during the summer because it's just so hot here. Maybe I could do a treadmill race? haha
