Race for a Vacation

Traveling is one of my absolute favorite things to do. If I won the lottery, once I did the responsible thing and paid off all debt, I would take Josh and Ella on a trip around the world. I have an extremely long list of places I’d like to go. Running is another one of those things I most of the time love to do. Why not combine them?

This got me thinking, what are some races that I’d like to do as part of a vacation? Here are a few races that I’d love to do.

Napa Valley Marathon

New York Marathon

Berlin Marathon

Athens Marathon (the original)

London Marathon

Chicago Marathon

California International

Mayor’s Sun Marathon

Marine Corps Marathon

Honolulu Marathon

I’m not really ready to commit to a full marathon this yet, but if I happen to get into one, well then I guess it’s meant to be. With this in mind, I decided to roll the dice and put my name in the lottery for the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. The race is the weekend after our 4th wedding anniversary. I could handle a little post-race R&R in Napa. We’ll see what happens.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for a race, where would it be?

  1. Totally off topic but I wanted to wish you health and a good race this weekend!

    P.S. YES, I swear we are living parallel lives some days. First post-baby half the same weekend? And a cold to boot? We need to pick something more exciting 🙂
