My newest addiction- virtual races! My newest find Medal Mouth. I love virtual 5k's because you control your race, your start time, your course, your date, and everything in between. I love Medal Mouth because their oganization is unique in that all our medal sales go towards a cause or ministry endeavors (cancer awareness, adoption, autism, mission trips....just to name a few). So you can feel good about showing off your bling and knowing that you are supporting a good cause. My niece and I did an autism race- what a great cause. Virtual races are an awesome way to get in some quality family time! Heres our race collage! We had a lot of fun.
Above is us before and during our race. My 8 year old niece has wanted to do every 5k with me but 3 miles is a lot for an 8 year old who has not trained so she isnt able to participate in any of the organized races around town- which is a bummer to have to deny her healthy fun. Virtual 5ks are perfect because she was able to ride her bike! In the future we will walk/running, she can ride her scooter, or we can do a triatholon type of event. We were thinking of looping around the neighborhood one round walk/running one round on her bike and the next her scooter or even rollerskates. We have a lot of fun events planned. We are going to watch Medal Mouth for upcoming races and choose a cause we love for our next race. Our cousin is autistic so we were very excited to be a part of Medal Mouths autism race. #TeamDustin!
This is us after we earned our medals. We worked hard for these, it was already over 90 degrees outside when we did our run at 8 in the morning. Welcome to the desert. We earned these fab spinner medals and they are now proudly displayed in our home gym. We are thinking of doing a Medal Mouth virtual race with her friends in our neighborhood for her birthday. Every kid can walk, run, skateboard, bike, or a combination of all around the neighborhood. We will set up water stations and mile markers to make this a really fun healthy event for her birthday party. Medal Mouth makes healthy family fun easy & accesable to everyone. Earn awesome swag, get fit, and support great causes with Medal Mouth.
