Summer is in full force and doesn't seem to be letting up soon. I rarely run any races after the Peachtree Road Race on July 4th due to the heat, but this year I made an exception. I participated in the Asics Falmouth At-Home Race Edition 7 mile race. The race took place over the course of a week (Aug 12-19). The 7 miles could be completed in one race or spread over the course of the week. I enjoy virtual races due to the ability to run on your own terms and in your favorite neighborhood. I enjoyed the run and swag was pretty sweet too.
The swag box arrived prior to race week. The box included a reusable bag, mug, bib boards, sidewalk chalk, Gatorade hydration, sea salt, the bib, and the medal. My favorite item was the bib boards, the non-pin bib fasteners.
I opted to run the 7 miles in 3 separate races. It is hot in ATL and the temperature escalates really quickly, even in the mornings. By breaking up the run, I could run short runs in cooler temperatures.
Race 1: Aug 12 (3.12 miles)
The first race was a 5k adventure of eating figs and running from dinosaurs. The weather was warm, but it was a fun run.
Race 2: Aug 17 (2.76 miles)
The second run was a quick endeavor before heading to work. My pace really improved between the first and second run.
Race 3: Aug 19 (3.12 miles)-The Finale
The third race was the finale. While I had only 1.12 miles remaining to complete the race, I decided to run a 5k to earn a few extra miles. Great pace, the fastest of all three runs. I earned the medal and had a post-race celebration at Chick-Fil-A.
Overall, it was great race. I ran my favorite routes, which were classic ATL (heat, hills, and humidity). The medal was cool and I am glad to add it to you my collection.
