Tuesdays on the Run: Dream Race

on March 31, 2015

This week’s Tuesdays on the Run topic is Dream Races and I confess, it was fun to daydream about my dream races during O’s swim practice yesterday. 🙂 Thanks to April, Patty and Erika for hosting as always!


I don’t have just one dream race, but I do have several on my wish list.

– The Mayor’s Midnight Sun Half Marathon in Alaska: This just sounds like such a gorgeous way to see Alaska. Can you imagine the scenery?

– The Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco: I loved running in San Francisco when I visited last year and have heard such great things about this race!

– Something in Washington, DC (maybe the Rock n Roll?): Washington is one of my favorite cities to visit and I love seeing all of the race pics from friends who get to run there. It’s on our vacation destination list when O gets a little older, so we’ll try to coordinate vacation and a race.

Walt Disney World Marathon: Yes, I’ve decided to tackle a full marathon and I can think of no better place to do it than Disney World. Disney has been a huge motivation in my running from the beginning, so I’d naturally want to take that next step there. I won’t be tackling this for a few years, just because of the training time. I’d like O to get a little older so he doesn’t care so much if I’m gone for four hours on the weekend for a training run. I’m thinking that a marathon for my 40th year sounds like a good timeline (a little over 3 years from now). **My husband thinks this one is particularly funny because when I first started running, I told him to take me to the hospital if I ever started talking running a marathon because something was seriously wrong with me!

What about you? What are your dream races?

    Ooooh you made great picks! I’d LOVE to race in Alaska! And I’ve wanted to run the Nike Womens’ half forever but since it went lotto I kind of gave up on it. Yes please to RnR DC too!

    • I’ve been on a string of RunDisney things, so I haven’t gone in for the Nike Women’s lotto yet but suspect that’ll be coming in a few years. 🙂 At least I have a healthy hobby, right?

  2. I did the Disney Marathon in 2010. It was fantastic!

    Oh I love all of those races! The one in Alaska looks amazing! I’d love to do the Cherry Blossom run too! Thanks for linking up with us today!

  4. I NEVER thought I would even talk about running a full marathon either, but I ended up running the wdw marathon as my first. That’s a perfect first marathon!

  5. Love all of these dream races! The Mayor’s Midnight Sun Half is on my bucket list for sure; we went to Alaska on our honeymoon and have been itching to go back, plus I want to do a race in all 50 states, so it fits the bill in more ways than one! Disney’s Princess Half is also on my bucket list as is the Paris Half Marathon. I’d love to go back to Paris someday! I thought I heard rumor of a Disney race at EuroDisney outside of Paris, so that might be an option. 🙂

    I am struggling with WW maintenance. Are you following any diet plans?

    • I’ve struggled too. Weight Watchers was great for losing but I just really didn’t find any support for maintenance, especially once my awesome leader left. Now I’m doing MyFitnessPal and trying to focus on food quality, trusting that it is going to slowly fall off. It’s definitely an exercise in patience unfortunately.
