Digital finisher’s bib.

Last weekend was the TSC New York City Marathon. The desire to walk the associated 5K through Manhattan was what started my 5k idea. [Proof of Concept]

Alas this year, no IRL New York for anyone. Double alas, they had a Virtual Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K, but they had it without me. Back when I was looking at races/walks for the second half of the year, all I found was a NYC 5k that was tied up with two other races. This mile on Fifth Avenue was the closest I could get.

The virtual Fifth Avenue mile was fun, as I have walked up and down most of that street over the years.
