What are some of the destination races that you have taken part in ? Or where would you like go ? There are a couple of places that I'd like to go, including the NYC Marathon and the London Marathon but I can't see that happening any time soon. I don't really want marathons to be my main race distance either, I am happy with 13.1 miles, that seems far enough for me most days. I feel like some people in the running world look down on me for not running fulls but I try to ignore them the best that I can. I think it is still an accomplishment to even get out there and try. Plus I enjoy the half marathons, anything longer than that and it usually stops being fun. Basically what I am trying to say is, do what you enjoy and not what others say you should do, but still get out there and be active!
Keep on Running!

Wow, is pretty much the only way to describe today. Anthony and I woke up at the butt crack of dawn and headed down to the city of Tacoma for the St. Patrick's Day Half Marathon. After making a much needed pit stop at Starbucks for breakfast we arrived in plenty of time to pick up our race packets and get ready for the run. This run was especially memorable because it was Anthony's very first half marathon!
We were all lined up and ready for the race to begin and we were already thoroughly wet and my feet soaked. The weather didn't seem to phase Anthony, thankfully! He faced the run without hesitation.
Thank you for reading!
Keep on Running!

The only thing negative about the expo was their lack of directions to get to it!
Once we were off it was Hills Hills Hills in this run, thankfully only a couple killers. Mostly they were gently rolling hills that just required a bit of effort. More mind over matter than anything.
Over all I'd say this race is a definite go! If it comes to a city near you, sign up! Then gorge yourself on chocolate, guilt free of course! It's a fun and delicious time!
