Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Is there a popular race you never want to run? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
No this is an interesting topic! It will be interesting to see which races people do not want to run. While there are still so many races that I would LOVE to run, there’s also a few that i have no desire to run for various reasons.
I know this one will probably be shocking to most distance runners, but I have never wanted to run this race. The main reason is because I know I’ll never qualify to run it based on my finish time. The race also allows runners to fundraise for a race entry but the minimum fundraising amount is pretty high and I don’t think I could meet that goal. While I’m sure it would be a fun race, especially since it’s a World Marathon Major race, there just aren’t many viable options for me to run the race. However, I would definitely go spectate and cheer on friends if they run the race in the future!
Any Disney Races
While I don’t mind dressing up in costume for holiday races, I just don’t think that the Disney races would be my thing. I’ve also heard the races start SUPER early and I just can’t see myself waking up at 2 or 3am to run a race. Plus it’s always so humid in Florida and humidity is my running kryptonite so I don’t think I would have fun 🙁
The Barkley Marathons
Ultramarathons don’t sound like fun, and this one is especially hard, so no thanks! In fact the course it so difficult that it hasn’t had a finisher the last few years. Plus I don’t particularly like the race director based on some of his actions last year so I really have 0 interest in anything about this race.
Tell me: Is there a popular race you never want to run?
