My favorite morning run hands down lately has been 7 before 7. We got it in this morning while watching a beautiful RUNrise on the lake.
You truly cannot beat this view. My legs were feeling pretty good too especially after an amazing sauna/hot tub session…I spent 3 straight hours in Spa Castle last night. Pure heaven.
So I was thinking about some races that I’ve got on my bucket list…I definitely want to run these in the near future. I know some of you have done these already so you’ll have to give me some pointers! Hopefully I’ll be able to check them off one by one.
–Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon – San Diego, CA: I’ve actually run the half but I am looking forward to running the FULL this June! SD is one of my favorite cities hands down so looking forward to exploring it 26.2 miles at a time.
–Hachie 50 – Waxahachie, TX: This one is 5 loops of 10 miles on a partly trail, mostly paved route. A little repetitive but I do love me some looped courses. Plus it’s out in the country. Love me some country running.
–Wineglass Marathon – Corning, NY: This one is in NY and I’ve heard great things about it…plus it sounds like a cool destination with wine tasting and such.
–Sevilla Marathon – Seville, Spain: I am a sucker for scenic courses and I hear this one does not disappoint. Plus Spain in general has been on my bucket list for travel so this would be a neat opportunity to run an international race.
–Kauai Marathon – Kauai, HI: This one has a small town feel (which I love) and of course it’s in Hawaii which is pretty much my most favorite place in the universe. Plus I have never been to this particular island before. Win win situation.
–Le Marathon du Medoc – Pauillac, France: From what I hear folks dress up in costume, try different French wines ALONG the course (yeah, crazy), and overall just have a good time. Right up my alley. Sounds like I will have to pace myself though. HA. Check out more about this crazy race here.
–Big Sur Marathon – Big Sur, CA: Again I love me a scenic race and this one has been on the list for a long time. One day hopefully I will qualify for Boston and then I’ll have to do the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge.
–Boston Marathon- Boston, MA: Yes, the ‘SUPER BOWL of running’…it’s on the list. I’d like to qualify for it before I die…but first…I’ve got some more ultras to get out of the way.
–Salt Flats 100- Wendover, UT: Speaking of ULTRAS…I have my eye on this one because of the cool looking terrain. Thanks to this girl for sharing her photos! I have never been to Utah either so it would be a good one to check off the list and also get some trail type running in. They have both a 50 and 100 miler to choose from.
–Leadville 100- Leadville, CO: Some of my ultra friends have run this race and have good things to say about it. It sounds like some pretty tough terrain too so it would be a good challenge for me. I think I’ve reached that point in my running where I really want to push past the typical marathon mileage and really see what I’m made of with distance. Cray cray I know.
What races are on your marathon/ultra bucket list?
