This week's Tuesdays on the Run topic is "Your running bucket list."
I used to have a never-ending list of races that I wanted to run. Here is a post I wrote last year which named around 20 of my wish-listers.
Fast forward to the present. Over the past few months, I've talked ad nauseum about how I've lost a lot of my enthusiasm for running and racing.
The Honolulu Marathon
Or any race in Hawaii, really, but the Honolulu Marathon is the first one that comes to mind. I'll take any opportunity to visit the islands and enjoy the stunning scenery and aloha spirit. It would be amazing to run a race in that atmosphere.
I love Disney and would always enjoy any opportunity to go to the parks and see Mickey. Admittedly I am shellshocked at how much runDisney registration fees have skyrocketed in the past few years. But I would really love to experience the original Disney race. In my prior Disney races, I've never had the chance to run through the Magic Kingdom. I still hope to do so someday.
I am fortunate that I'll get to cross this one off the list next month. It'll be a great experience to run through the Strip at night. If there was ever a race that is the equivalent of one ginormous party, I imagine this would have to be it.
As you can see, the running bucket list only has a few drops in it right now. I know these three races aren't the most out-of-the-box choices, either.
The more adventurous races on my prior list still sound cool to me, of course. However, they are all destination races. Right now I'd prefer vacationing over run-cationing at these destinations. These days my travel bug bites much more strongly than my running bug.
What races are on your bucket list?
