Five Things Friday - 1.13

Happy Friday! We made it through another week! The weather is a little better here this week, thank goodness, and I am really excited for the weekend! I am linking up again with Running On Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for this edition of Five Things Friday.

The topic this week was dream vacations, but I decided to do dream races. I am lucky enough to have crossed two bucket list races off my list (Goofy Challenge in 2014 and Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas in 2016) but I do have a few more that I really want to do!

1. Marine Corps Marathon - I come from a family of service men. My grandfathers were in WWII, my dad was in the Marines and one of my very best friends from high school is currently serving in the Marines. I need to do this race. Maybe in 2018, but it will be some day. I can't not do it.



2. SeaWheeze - Everyone says such amazing things about SeaWheeze that it has now become a bucket list race. I really want to visit Vancouver in general, and I love seeing the different medals that come out every year.



3. Disneyland Half - After Princess, there are only a few more Disney races I haven't done. The Disneyland half is one of them. I mean, I'm not a big Star Wars fan (sorry) so I don't think I need to do those races, and I cannot even name you any of the Avengers. Looks like I need the Disneyland half!



4. A Ragnar - Just one. I want to experience it. We were suppose to do one this year, but things came up and it just isn't going to work. One day I will do one, and I hope it is a great experience.



5. San Francisco Marathon - I want to run across the Golden Gate Bridge. Is that too much to ask for? Hubs and I have talked about returning to California at some point and going to San Fran. I think he secretly knows I will run this race if we go.



I have had the opportunity to run so many amazing races already, I can't wait to cross some of these off my list one day!

What race is on your bucket list? Any you are crossing off in 2017?

  1. SeaWheeze was on my list as well- Maybe we can both do it in 2018!

  2. Both Marine Corp and Disneyland are great races! Hope you get to check that off your buck list one day! I want to run Ragnar one of these years.

  3. I'd like to experience a Ragnar too. We have the Great River Ragnar in MN in August - but I am such a baby if I don't get y sleep, so I get nervous about signing up. I've heard great things are seawheeze too.

    1. Yeah, that's a fear for me too. Plus I don't do well in the back seat of a car lol

  4. We love San Fran! I would love to do the marathon there. There is also a race a little north of San Fran that's on the Dipsea Trail. I would looooooove to do that one!

  5. You definitely have to do Seawheeze. It's probably my favorite race that I've ever run! Everything about it, from the swag to the course to the volunteers and the entire pre and post race production was insane. It's almost as if the entire city is decked out for the race that weekend. I want to do it again!

  6. I'd love to do SeaWheeze! I hear it's impossible to get into. And MCM is on my "if I do another marathon after Grandmas" list!
