I Am The Storm Distance Challenge – Race Review

I Am The Storm Distance Challenge


I Am The Storm Distance Challenge LogoThe I Am The Storm Distance Challenge is one of the current races we're working on.  I signed up for it on November 18, 2020.  But, due to Tendonitis in my foot, I have not started the race yet.  I have until December 31, 2020 to complete 100 miles to meet my original goal.  So I need to get to it very soon, I just want to let my foot heal as much as I can first.  I may have to push it out to next year.

Since I haven't yet completed this race, I will be sure to come back and update this post as I work the challenge and complete the goal.

What I Liked

I Am The Storm Distance Challenge GearThere were several things I liked about the I Am The Storm Distance Challenge:

  • Gear - To me, the medal and bibs are must haves for races.  Getting a shirt also is a nice surprise now and then.  And this one actually had my size!
  • Theme - I love the storm theme.  I love thunderstorms simply because of the power behind them.  This challenge embraces that concept.
  • Distance - The smaller races that only require 5k, 10k or even half marathons are over so quickly that they don't really do a good job of keeping me focused on being active.  This one does with the goal of 100 miles.  It will take me several days of activity to complete this one.
  • Colors - Purples, greens, and blues are my favorite colors, this challenge has a lot of those colors

 

What I Disliked

It's only fair to report what I didn't like about the I Am The Storm Distance Challenge also, right?  There weren't many things I disliked about this race.  But there were a few:

  • Availability - This seems to be one of those races that is only offered for a limited time.  I haaate that!  I don't like to be participating in too many races at one time so I like to spread them out and do them individually.  But since this one is only offered until the end of February 2021, I only have until then to purchase it.  But this isn't too much of a problem since you can complete the race any time.
  • Shirt - Don't get me wrong, the shirt is a quality, cotton shirt.  I would prefer to have an option for a tank top as I live in Florida where it's hot almost year round.  Not really complaining here, just being honest.  I wore the shirt just yesterday.

 

Summary

Great Challenge!

So, the I Am The Storm Distance Challenge was a great challenge.  It wasn't a 5k or 10k that we can finish in a few short hours.  It is a more challenging short term goal that will require us to stay focused for more than a day.  Those are the challenges that will get us to our weight loss goals faster.

I will enjoy this race.  If you're reading this and you sign up to participate, don't forget to join our team!  We are the Sloth Runners.

Now... get to stepping!
