My final run. I am not the fastest but this is a great time for me. I love to run and RB keeps me on track. May need to try a 10K and transition back to outside running.

Only RunBet could get me in out in 30-50mph winds, below freezing temps, snow, rain, and when I’m on the road and generally just don’t feel like it for numerous other reasons even though I (almost) always feel better and glad that I went!! 🎉 Congrats to everyone who has finished or is racing against the deadline tonight! 🎉
