Running for Angels Virtual 5k Race Report

The Green Girl participated in the Running for Angels Virtual 5k on Sunday, April 21, 2013.

The Running For Angels 5k race benefited the Foundation For Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics to help fund important research for treatment for Angelman Syndrome.

Angelman Syndrome is a genetic disorder. Characteristic features of this condition include developmental delay, speech impairment, and problems with movement and balance (ataxia).

Angels have a happy demeanor and laugh easily. While Angels cannot speak, they do have much to say.

Many angels also suffer from epilepsy. The seizures can be debilitating and, in some cases, even fatal.

A virtual race is a sporting event where everyone sets their own course and runs or walks their own race wherever they happen to be on the planet.

You sign up online and run your race on the scheduled date. If you cannot run on that day, you may run it on a day that works for you.

After completing my virtual 5k in Hermosa Beach, I received a Running for Angels 5k Virtual Race medal and technical race shirt in the mail from the race director, Timothy Misiak.

I love how virtual races allow runners in disparate geographic locations to come together for a common cause.

I am looking forward to participating in future Running for Angels Virtual events.
