Since I’m starting to get back on my feet, I’m starting to think about races. It was really tough a couple of weeks ago to see all the social media surrounding Disney World Marathon Weekend, knowing I had to give up on the 10K. So I’ve been dreaming of what I want to do once I can. In an ideal world, someday I’ll do these races.
In no particular order:
Key West Half: Mark and I loved our visit to Key West a few years ago. And who doesn’t want a medal that doubles as a wine stopper!
Space Coast Half: I’ve always had a love of space, so to get to run in the shadow of where the shuttle used to be would be so exciting. Spoiler alert: the 2014 medal is just too good to pass up. Mark and I registered. I signed up before I was released to run. Maybe not the smartest thing in the world.
Kentucky Derby Half: Because I’ve always wanted to go to the Derby. Running through Churchill Downs in a Derby hat is almost as good.
Disney Princess Half: Although I’m a little disappointed in the medal for 2014. Maybe 2015 will be better.
Disneyland Tinkerbell Half: My big dream is to run the Coast to Coast challenge, and I like the looks of the Tink course. And they’ve moved the race to Mother’s Day weekend. 2015 is starting to look optimistic…
Disneyland Half: Totally because of the ginormous D medal!
Rock n’ Roll Las Vegas: Vegas is one of Mark’s and my favorite cities. We honeymooned there. I know this race has had some organizational problems in the past, but I’d risk it to run down the Strip at night.
Gasparilla Half: Because all of my race decisions are determined by the bling. And I like flat courses.
Mississippi Blues Half: I’ve just heard this is a great race. And I have friends in Jackson, so no hotel costs!
Oh yeah, and I want to become a Half Fanatic.
So what’s on your race bucket list? Any fantastic races I’m missing out on? Post it here!
