This was one of the best virtual races/run challenges. The premise was clear. Run, walk, bike, swim 53 miles between Jan 1st and Feb 29th. The 465 is the Interstate loop around Indianapolis and it is 53 miles.
Running on a federal interstate is illegal but this virtual challenge was a great way to start off a new year in a cold and dreary time in January. I loved it and I hope it continues next year.
I started out with a bang. By late January, I had already completed one 53 mile loop.
And by the end of February, I squeaked out another 53 miles, meaning I am a Looper!
What I liked about this run challenge is the communtiy support. The Facebook group was a great place to meet up, virtually, with other 465 participants.
It was especially cool to hear from those who live in Indiana and knowthe 465 loop well. They had some great input in the group.
Thank you, 465 Challenge and BibRave for such a unique and fun opportunity!
