Virtual 5k!

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled race report programming for some breaking news.
I'm hosting a virtual 5k! Woo hoo! It will be on March 19th! I wanna do this to keep up my momentum as I train for my second half marathon. So here's the rules:
  1. Comment on this post that you are running and give me your name
  2. Run 5k on the 19th of March anywhere you want. Treadmill, neighborhood, park, whatever. Just run it.
  3. Comment on the follow-up post that you did and share your time. 
If you do all of that I will mail you a little award (right now I'm thinking a mini trophy or medal) for helping me stay active and participating! Also, if you blog about your virtual 5k experience, I'll post a link on my page! So who's with me? Let's do this! If you haven't run a 5k before this is a perfect first time race for you because no one will even know you're doing it and there's no time limit!
