Running Bucket List

on October 4, 2016

I had a great time daydreaming about this topic during a seminar this morning! (Don’t tell the poor kid presenting that my mind wandered!) Thanks as always to Patty, Erika and Marcia for hosting our Tuesdays on the Run link up. I look forward to reading about everyone else’s running bucket lists!

I came up with three dream races for my running bucket list. I could think of a ton of places I’d love to run, but decided to restrict my list to just those that I’m willing to travel for and schedule my chaotic life around.

  • Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run: Washington DC is one of my favorite cities to visit, especially during springtime. A run around the monuments in the midst of the cherry blossoms sounds divine! Washington is a great family vacation destination, so we’ll try to work a trip around this race in a few years when O is old enough to appreciate the city.
  • Mayors Midnight Sun Half Marathon: This is a race in Anchorage, Alaska at the time of the summer solstice. You run through town a bit and then through the forests, past mountains and along Cook Inlet. It sounds like a fantastic way to mark Alaska off of my 50 states running list! As a bonus, since this is a summer race, we’ll be able to work it into vacation around O’s school schedule in a few years.
  • Walt Disney World Marathon: Yep, this one is on my bucket list. As a Disney lover, running through all four parks sounds absolutely AMAZING and I can’t believe that I’ll get to do it in just 3 months! In keeping with my theme of planning vacations around my bucket list races, Darrell and I will be going on our first kid-less vacation after this race (cruise!).

What have I done?!

As a bonus race, I agree with Patty – Disneyland Paris sounded fantastic from the recent reports. Who knows – Paris is also on my travel bucket list, so we may try to schedule a future vacation around this race. 🙂

What’s on your running bucket list?
