My first virtual race director experience

Leave a comment

Short version: I loved it!

I «directed» my first virtual race in April – This Chick Loves To Run (for a cure) – to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
With the support of all participants we raised over $1,000 for LLS! In my books that’s pretty awesome.

My goals were:

  • To raise funds for LLS
  • To create a supportive community via Facebook and G+
  • To ensure all participants enjoy the experience
  • To have an awesome medal for all runners

I won’t lie. It was hard work. I was trying to create inspiring posts in the communities most days, reading every post, responding to every post.
But I also don’t lie when I say it was one of the most rewarding months I had this year!

I loved the creative process of coming up with a medal design with my friend Arek. I loved it when participants posted in the communities. I loved it when people told me how much they liked the medal.

I don’t know if everyone who participated had a great experience or loved the medal, but I do hope so. And the feedback that I have received was as overwhelmingly positive.

Thank you all, who joined in to make this such a rewarding experience for me and for the cause!
You made this experience ridiculously amazing for me!!
