I signed up for my second Virtual Run not long after my first one – within twenty-four hours actually. I was browsing through the POW! Virtual Running website and found some past medals in their merchandise section at £5 each and I couldn’t resist getting the Gamma Ray Run one, a medal of The Hulk looking all huge and menacing.
As this was a past medal, there was no background information to it or anything regarding race distances or charities supported. All I could find out was that it was leftover stock from 2016 and they wanted rid. A bargain in my eyes!
As there was no race distance as such for this medal, I decided to run another 5km. I pretty much followed the same route as for my BB8 5km through Heaton Park and Jesmond Dene but to make it a bit more interesting, I tried to better my last race time. Thankfully, I was quicker but I bruised my foot in the process so have been limping around everywhere for the last few days!

I didn’t plan a soundtrack for this run and just listened to whatever was on my phone – a mixture of Slash and The Stone Gods – it did the job but I’m going to have to put some new music on there for my next run!
For completing this race (well, buying the medal), I got a green and black Incredible Hulk medal. The radiation sign is a nice addition too, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t encounter any on my run. I doubt I’ll ever be as ripped as the Hulk silhouette on the medal, even the jeans I wear aren’t as ripped as his!
Fancy buying this medal? Well, I’m afraid you can’t as they’ve sold out!
