My 2nd New Year Marathon of the Year!

I am a marathon addict. For the past three years I have pledged to run a marathon a month. All was going fine. Then COVID-19 hit. All the big marathons and even the small ones were cancelled. I found myself having to run my monthly marathons as solo events. In 2020, I was locked out in Thailand, but it was new and exciting. But on my return to suburban Japan, less so. Lack of motivation. But virtual marathons like the Chinese New Year Marathon 2021 give a sense of belonging. Give motivation. And give bling! My beautiful medal arrived yesterday!
To all my fellow runners. Keep the faith and keep running.

Nice packaging but, beat up a bit. I like the theme. I am not sure what the card is good for. I was expecting medal to be a bit larger, though. I look forward to see future designs and themes.

Chinese New Years Run

It was probably the most rewarding and motivating things I have ever done so far. I have never done a marathon and this motivated me to do more and maybe do an in-person one, when ever those come back. The one thing that frustrated me was the set up in the beginning. The team there was amazing and I am glad that they worked with me the whole way through. However when the program went from working to not working, when my name and runner's number were nowhere listed, and when nothing that was supposed to didn't work at all it was physically and mentally draining. The team there were absolutely amazing in pulling everything together and fixing it before the race began however and should be commended. The medal and card are absolutely beautiful and was definitely worth the wait. I was a little disappointed that the box the medal and card were in was smashed in shipping but everything inside the mailing envelope and box were okay. I did notice it said the card would have my name and some other number or code in addition to my recorded mileage. However, only the mileage is on the card. It is however incredibly cool looking definitely one of the coolest things I've ever had. I am very happy to have done this and hope you continue doing virtual runs for a long time.
