One of My Favorite 26.2s and Fall Races Coming Up.

7 miles this morning sporting my throwback Thursday shirt from the Marine Corps Marathon! This is without a doubt one of my favorite 26.2’s. I’ve been back three times already for that race alone (out of 14) so that should tell you something.


Since fall is fast approaching here are just a few races that I have on tap! There are lots more medals to add to the rack and maybe some more PRs to break. Yeah, working on that. I’ve thrown in a few shorter speedier races for good measure. I’ve really enjoyed racing though lately so I’ve decided to get something on the calendar for the rest of the year at least once a month to keep the momentum going. Call it a mini racing streak! And of course a few of these will just be a run for fun. Haha…yeah I do run 26.2 miles just for the heck of it. I like the joyride.


Here’s what we’ve got on tap!

The Color Half Marathon- Cedar Hill, Texas
Yes I have done a color run that was a 5k awhile ago but I figured this one would be even more fun! 13.1 miles of color…& yes it is timed…things should get a little crazy. It should be some nice scenery out in Cedar Hill too and I’ve never run out there so I am looking forward to that.

Tyler Rose Marathon- Tyler, Texas
This is the race I’ve been training for most of the summer so I am hoping things go well but I hear it is crazy hilly. Good thing I’ve been doing a lot of my longer runs on some hilly routes so we should be in good shape to rock it out. The medal does look pretty cool.

Monster Dash Half Marathon- Fort Worth, Texas
Yep…it’s on Halloween. Ahh!! Time to find a costume. I think I still have this flapper girl one.


Rock n Roll Marathon- Las Vegas, Nevada
This race starts in the late afternoon so I’m not sure how I’ll do as far as a target time goes…I’m just going out there to have fun! A few of my running buds will be running the half and it was the same price as the full so I just figured what the heck. I’d rather get more miles in for that extra glass of vino! I’m just saying.

I always have fun traveling to do races with this gal though. Vegas here we come! She is my true blue racing buddy.


Pumpkin Spice 15k- Fort Worth, Texas
Back to the DFW for a little speedy running fun! The 15k is one of my favorite distances so I’m hoping I’ll have it in me to pick up the pace a bit especially if we get lucky with some cooler weather.

  1. Oh my gosh Chelsea…that rose medal…TOO CUTE!! I want one! Haha, I guess that means I’d have to run a marathon! Eeek! I’ll leave that to you! Just reading about the Pumpkin Spice race makes me want fall so bad! I love anything pumpkin! YUM! Loving the Las Vegas race, too! Such cute pictures!

  2. All of these sound like so much fun! I am all about pumpkin spice anything, so that race would be right up my alley. My fall race schedule is pretty sparse right now: I have a 5K on Saturday and a 10K in October. I’ll probably be adding in a few more races, though. 🙂

  3. That rose marathon medal looks so pretty! I’d run that.
    And ditto on the Las Vegas Marathon, if it’s the same price and the same day as my friends are running, totally. Why not take advantage of a supported long run? 🙂
