Virtual 5k??

Does anyone know of a virtual 5k this weekend?

My goal this year is to run an "official" 5k every month in 2014. But I am having a huge problem finding a January race. There is one this weekend, but it is 2 hrs away and it is supposed to be pouring rain. I just can't justify the expense (the race supports the town's rec center, so that is not a charity that excites me) of the race and gas for travel to get soaked and have to drive back wet. And we just don't have the extra money for a hotel this weekend. So, I am broadening my "official 5k" to include virtuals. I don't mind running in the rain near home :)  If you know of one, let me know!

And HAPPY NEW YEAR!
