Virtual Run Across America

With today being Sunday, and having a knot on my head from smacking into the car trunk this morning, I don't have anything of my own to share. That being the case, I do have something that I've been trying to fit into the blog for a while.

The Virtual Run Across America is something that was thunk up by a blogger named NikeMom, and it goes something like this:

Run. Really hard, isn't it? Run whatever distance you would normally run, be it 1 mile or 20. The distance you run will be mapped onto a map of the United States, and through all participants' runs, we'll make it across the country!

There are a couple of cool things about the venture. First, if you're already running a good amount, it will add to the whole quickly. If you aren't, it's a good motivator to run more. For everyone involved, it'll be a whole lot of fun.

It all starts on January 1, 2009. So head on over to Virtual Run Across America and check it out. "See" you there!
