What's Next?



I feel like I have been walking around aimlessly for the past week and a half.  I have completed five marathons this year and now, I don't have anything else scheduled. It has been an awesome year for me. I have proven to myself that I can do whatever I set my mind to. I love running! It really has been the only thing that has kept me sane over the past 10 months. We have had a lot of stress in our lives and being able to "run the stress away" has been a real blessing, and the support of my family has been just amazing!



There are several marathons I would love to do one day: 
Athens 
London 
Boston, and of course,
All the Hawaiian Island ones

Marathons that are a little closer to home:
Big Sur
San Francisco
Disney World Goofy's Challenge
Chicago 
NYC
*I am sure there are plenty more, these were just the biggies off the top of my head.

I have done: 
St.George (4)
Salt Lake City (2)
Las Vegas 
Ogden
Deseret News
Top of Utah

What are some of your favorite races? Suggestions are always welcome. 
I think I may have come up with a new running goal for this runner girl. I will let you know. ( :

Five marathons this year! nice. I wont even get one in. I have to say that my favorite race would easily be the Living History Farms Cross Country Race. http://www.fitnesssports.com/November_races/LivHistFarms/lhf_index.html

It is never the same experience. It would be a long trip for you though. However sooo worth it.

I don't know why they cut that off.

Big Sur is my dream marathon. Everytime I read the race description mile by mile I get chills. My dad lives in San Romone, so you never know, maybe this April. BTW. Congrats on 5, that will be me after Philly in Nov. I still want to run more though! LOL.

Why not just relax for a bit and just run? You don't have to worry about training or PRs or hydration strategies. Just go run!

A GIANT pat on your back for getting to your goal! You rock :)! Ten marathons is a ways off for me - will you settle for doing Ogden with me in the spring?
