Hey out there, I’m back with another awesome virtual race review. I will mention this again later, and provide a link for you, BUT, you can still sign up for this race too!!
So, I loved the strong and empowering message this race, and how their social media presence not only incorporated a comic book standing, but also promoting women in athletics with the tag #IAMWONDERWOMAN.
Being a virtual race, I was free to decide when, and where I wanted to race, and even though I do miss the “in-person” races, I do find a sense of serenity knowing I can do a race on my time. Better yet, this race offers a 5K and a 10K option. In reference to my previous posts, I registered for this one before I had scheduled a surgery, but I was strong minded and opted for the 10k. This made the Wonder Woman race a “Get back into a longer run” race for me, and I found that to be highly motivational.
Now, being a BibRave Pro (check out this link or the one above for more information on that) I donned my BibRave shirt and hat, my knockaround shades, and being a super hero themed race (and me being a super hero fan) I also sported a Green Lantern cape that I got from a trip to Six Flags last year (sorry I didn’t have a Wonder Woman one), in addition to this I wore the sweatbands included as part of the swag which I will talk about shortly!
Now things I learned during this race:
- Wearing a cape while running sounds cool, but it will twist in the wind and try and strangle you, even if you think it’ll make that cool swish effect like a super hero. I am reminded of Edna Mode
- If you wear a cape in public, people WILL stare
- I tried making a cool Wonder Woman logo in my run map, but I guess I forgot what a W looks like
I’ll link some other Pros below if you want some more input on this race!
