The great thing about virtual races is that you can do them anywhere.... even if you are on your way to Disney anyway! We decided to drive partway to Disney yesterday and stop overnight on Amelia Island. We had a great dinner, walked the beach and then went to bed... not too early.
We got up this morning around 7, and we’re out the door by 7:30. We walked the first 2.9ish miles on the beach, but my poor knees had enough, and we got off the beach and hit the road. The road miles were a lot easier! Florida beaches have very firm sand, but it’s still an unstable surface, and that is rough on arthritic knees!
After we finished the miles and took showers, we headed to Disney. We will walk the second part of the Rival Run Challenge on Saturday: the half marathon. Stay tuned!
