We did it!
This past weekend 1,000 runners around the globe logged off and ran Gone For a Run's Log Off. Shut Down. Go Run Virtual 10k! Everyone did such a great job! It was amazing to see people near and far all running together!
For some people it was their first 10k ever! Way to go!

We all may have run in different places...

"10k done! ...in sticky, humid, windy weather!!" -Astrid K. Gilbert
