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?
