Rock Your Socks Marathon/10K Virtual Race

My buddy KT was looking to run a half marathon every month this year, but when planning her schedule, she couldn't find a race in May that would work for her. So, she decided to put on her own race. Now, KT, me and the rest of our teammates are hosting the 1st Annual Rock Your Socks Half Marathon and 10K.

And I thought I would invite you all to participate in the race as well - Virtually. (That is unless you really want to come to here and run with us.) I know you're interested. Here are the details ...

1st Annual Rock Your Socks Virtual Half Marathon and 10K

WHEN: Friday, May 21, Saturday May 22, or Sunday, May 23

DISTANCE: 10K or Half Marathon

COST: FREE - But I will take donations to the sock collection ...

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: Comment on this post to let me know you are in! Then send me an email with your name, distance and blog address (if applicable). And don't forget to invite all your friends to join in.

Then on the weekend of May 21-23, pick your course and run your race! When you are done email me the pictures, a link to your race report and your finish time.

WHAT WILL YOU GET?: Every participant will be linked on the Run Like A Mother Half Marathon and 10K Recap. And all racers will be entered to WIN a prize (or two or three, I haven't made up my mind yet).

Sounds like fun, doesn't it? So, are you in?

Count me in!
Someone should come up with a logo so we can put it on our own shirts!

Staci Dombroski said...

That gets me excited! I am going to try the half marathon :)

Allie said...

I'm actually running a 10K that weekend, can it count for both? :)

Amy W said...

I am in!

the dawn said...

Count me in! I'm scheduled to run a 16 miler that day, I'll just turn 13.1 of it into a tempo/race pace run. Thanks for organizing this! So fun :)

Tortuga_Runner said...

Totally in for the 10K, already doing a half May 2nd & probably May 16th too. Sounds super fun!

Lisbet said...

What a great idea - I may try to find a 1/2 in my area, but if I can't I am totally in! Hahahaha, love it.

Kim said...

Ok, I'll give it a try. I'm busy that weekend with my scuba diving certification, so it will have to be Friday and likely the 10K. This will be good because I was sad to have to miss running with my training group, and I've been sad that I haven't got a 10K to sign up for in May/June.

Carly said...

I'm in! I'm going for the 10K.

k2323 said...

I'm in. I'll do a 10K, then add a couple of miles to complete 9 total on Sunday the 23rd. How fun, thanks for doing this!

S Club Mama said...

I'm in for the 10K - it fits perfectly in with my training (well... .2 over but I think I can handle that). :D

Sarah said...

I'm in for the 10K! ;)

Marlene said...

Great idea! Sounds like fun. Count me in for a 10K because it's only a week after my marathon!

Alinda said...

Thanks! This sounds like so much fun! Count me in for the 1/2 marathon. I'm training for my first marathon and motivation to get long runs in is good :-)

rebeccam said...

I'm in! Have not decided which distance I will do yet..will get back to you. Great idea, thanks for doing it!

MCM Mama said...

Hmm, I think I'm in. That's the weekend after my marathon, so I'll probably be really slow and only able to manage a 10k, but we'll see.

Anne said...

That weekend is my first taper ever for my half...as a newbie, I'm not messing with that schedule. So no 10K for me that weekend...next time!!

Lindsay said...

I am just a newbie runner I am going to have to pass this time :( I love your blog though! MOTIVATION and ENTERTAINMENT :)

ajh said...

It is the weekend before a half that i am doing so I will run the 10K that weekend! Fun!

AM-GoalsfortheWeek! said...

I can't run this one (i've gotta attempt to stick to my training program). but I love the idea!;-)

Cynthia O'H said...

Definitely in! It's right after the half and before a 5K that I'm pushing for. Should be fun.

akjenniekt said...

I'm definitely in for the 10K- looking forward to it :)!

Judi said...

I am already running a 1/2 that weekend - but it sounds like fun. Maybe next time! :)

fleming Fab 5 said...

I am in for the 10K! SOOO excited. My 1st virtual race!

kilax said...

I am doing a real 10K race that weekend. Does that count? Probably not!

Melissa said...

Why not. I'm in.

Jen said...

Okay... I am in too.

I will be in West Palm Beach that weekend having a girls weekend with a good friend, so while I rather do the 1/2 marathon, better put me down for the 10K. I know I can run 6.3 miles anywhere, not sure about 13 in a new place.

When do we have to email you the race report by? I won't be back until late Sunday, and won't have access to the computer while I am away... let me know.

EricaH said...

i am in for the 10k. I do believe I have the perfect socks for this occassion

Stacie said...

I'm definitely in. Not set on the distance but usually if I start one of these I go the distance. I'm thinking the 1/2 marathon.

I'll be on the lookout for the perfect socks :) Can't wait!!!

Megan said...

I'm in for a 10k. At least I think. Got some IT bands issues. Hopefully it'll be better by then. :) If not, I'll walk it.

Jessica said...

I will defiantely commit to at least a 10K. Training for a half in August so I will make it my long run and see how far my legs take me :) Thanks for the challenge! Its awesome motivation!

Becca said...

In for a 10k! Yay!!!

Is it to late to sign up for the 10K???? I just stumbled across your blog (read your virtual tall mom 5K review, like what I read and decided to continue reading). I have 6 miles scheduled for Saturday, so this will work out perfectly for me. Let me know. Thanks.

Catey said...
