I’ve only been running a few years, but after talking with other runners and doing my own research, I’ve slowly started a running bucket list. I never thought that I would have a bucket list for running, but here it is:
Half Marathon Bucket List: In no particular order
Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville I would love to run this race, because it is in my hometown. Running through downtown Nashville would be amazing.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas I have been to Vegas before, but I would love to run down the strip at night! The city that never sleeps, I can only imagine how tiring it would be to wait around all day to run a 1/2 marathon at night!! Sounds fun to me!
United Airlines Guam Marathon Since Zach will eventually be moving to Guam, I started looking at running clubs and races. Guam is very, very, TINY. I would love to do the 1/2 marathon for this particular race.
United Airlines New York City Half Marathon I’ve only been to New York once, and it was only for about 8 hours. I was mesmerized. I think that this would be a fun way to see the city, plus you get to run through Central Park!!
Marathon Bucket List. As far as Marathons go… I’ll be lucky if I can even run one.
Marine Corps Marathon– I feel like this might be one of the most well known races in the U.S. Can you imagine how invigorating it must be to run through our Nation’s Capital? Unfortunately the race entry is through a lottery, but hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to get it some day.
Walt Disney World Marathon– I’ve already run 2 Disney races, but I would love to run the race that started it all! This race is always a few days before my birthday in January, and this would be an awesome birthday gift to myself.
I’m sure as time goes on I will add a few more races to my bucket list, but I think this is a good start! What are your favorite races? Are there any I should add to my list?
