Shelter in Shape with Jake: Golden Date

April 5 figured to be a packed day of races. Most were canceled due to COVID-19, but that didn't stop many runners from putting in the miles they had planned on.

AUSTIN, Texas — This workout is called the "Golden Date."

It was supposed to be the date KVUE sports reporter Jake Garcia crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, en route to finishing his seventh half marathon.

But the San Francisco Rock n Roll Half Marathon was among the many sporting events that was canceled due to COVID-19.

Still, Jake had put in 13 weeks of training, all designed to finish those 13.1 miles.

It was a Sunday Runday for the rest of the Shelter in Shape community, as well.

The Statesman Cap 10K was also supposed to be held Sunday, but it was canceled for the second straight year.

However, that didn't stop groups around the city from holding their own socially distant races.

Evie Tzimourakas organized one and called it the "Quaren-10K."

Jake finished his 13.1 miles in just under one hour and 50 minutes.
