What is a virtual 1k -> 10k : A virtual 1k -> 10k is something everyone can participate in from all over the world as a part of the Sara Bown community. Every month, I will come up with a date for our event and no matter your location, shape, size, or athletic level, you can get involved and participate in this event. You can run, walk, use the treadmill or use a video such as Leslie Sanson’s walk at home programs her videos show the miles ! The idea is to get moving and start – many who started walking in 2012 are now running strong ! Our 5k/10k community is filled with many in the beginning stages to those who participate in marathons often. Since starting this event and completing two 1/2 marathons, I’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis which causes full body pain along with many symptoms. Moving forward I’ll be walking myself so when I say ALL WELCOME, I mean it. I personally have been using a fitbit for years to track my steps & miles 🙂
When it comes to the bib, print out the one I create each month and take a sharpie or marker and add your master list # I give you in the center. Participating and posting a picture wearing your race bib on event day OR making a collage from the day is a great way to truly feel involved, this IS a real event, be sure to celebrate your accomplishment .. wearing your bib, brings the event to life.

** You will notice I have permanently added a #Team David to our bib. David Addington, added a light into our world, he had challenges to face and when people were privileged enough to see him tackle these challenges, it inspired them. David loved being loved and giving love, I know this from observing his posts and achievements over the years via his facebook page, from the beautiful note he wrote and sent me that hangs in a frame on my wall and from the tears that flooded down his cheeks when I sent a video to him singing ( True colors ). Years ago now, I ran my 1st 5k and I could NOT believe I was doing it, only months before I had trouble walking a block. I started out strong but on the last half where I had to turn around, the hot burning sun came out, not only was I struggling, I felt eyes on me, people cheering from the sidewalk. For a few moments, I felt spent and shortly after, I noticed a shadow that covered my shadow and in that moment, I thought of a new friend I had met via social media and I felt David running with me as I finished. I LOVED sharing with David that he completed it with me that day. David’s name has been permanently added on the bib to provide another way to allow David’s light to shine on ! He is loved by many not to mention the immense love of his family and it is my privilege to honor him and provide a way for his light to still reach others !
