Happy Wednesday! We’re half-way through the work week. C’mob…show me your happy dance!
So today we’re going to talk about my “racing bucket list”. After running a few races, I think it’s common for any runner to start their “bucket list”. I’m all about combining vacations with races, otherwise known as a “racecation”. It’s a fun way to see a new city and run in a new-to-you area.
Let’s be honest, some of the races on my list are a definite stretch, and I’ll probably never get to do some of them unless I hit the lottery, but a girl can dream right?!
Bank of America Chicago Marathon
I still have to complete my first marathon to see if I want to run more, but in the off chance that I want to continue to run marathons, I would love to do the Chicago Marathon. I first visited the city last year and absolutely loved it. I’m going back this year for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Remix Challenge (5k and half-marathon) and I cannot wait! I know TONS of people that have completed this race with nothing but good things to say about it, so if I want to run a second marathon, this would be my choice!
To be honest, I don’t know much about this marathon and I don’t know anyone that has ever done this race, but it’s in freakin’ Hawaii!! I’ve never been to Hawaii so of course this would be an awesome vacation, with a 26.2 mile run added, lol.
New York City Marathon
I feel very lucky that this race will (hopefully) be something that I can check off my bucket list! I’ve heard so many great things about this race and although I am nervous, I can’t wait to tackle all 5 boroughs in November. I have volunteered for this race twice and the energy is truly electric!
Puerto Rico Half Marathon
If you read my A-Z Blogger Survey that I posted last week, you know that I love Puerto Rico. I’ve only ever been in the San Juan area, but its just an amazing place to visit. The weather is normally perfect, the beaches are amazing, the drinks are strong and the scenery is beautiful! I plan on taking a week-long vacation around the time of the half marathon at some point, hopefully next year 🙂
