Races that I’d like to do in the future
Strataca Mine Run 5K, Hutchinson, KS, late Feb, I want to run underground!
Sperunking: Sand Mine Challenge, Crystal City, MO in late-Feb (I love caves. Obstacle course + unusual location = intrigue and fun. It might be difficult to talk Ben into doing this one.) The event seems to be permanently canceled.
Canyonlands Half Marathon, Moab, UT in mid-March (beautiful rock canyons, one of my favorite parts of the US)
Cooper River Bridge Run 10K, Charleston, SC, late March (I love bridges)
Big Sur International Marathon, Big Sur, CA in late-April (from red woods to the ocean, can’t beat the view/scenery)
Thelma & Louise Half Marathon, Moab, UT in early-June (beautiful rock canyons, one of my favorite parts of the US) I did this in June 2017!
Dipsea Race, Mill Valley to Stinson Beach, CA in early June (trail race in Northern California, they have a handicap system that allows everyone to compete for overall winner, and race officials accept bribes for the coveted race bibs).
Covered Bridges Half Marathon, Woodstock, VT in early June (I love covered bridges) We did it in 2016! Beach to Beacon 10K, Cape Elizabeth, ME in early August (beautiful course with lighthouse) – AH! We’re doing it this year. We did it in 2015! Bird-in-Hand Half Marathon, Bird in Hand, PA in early September (Amish country) – Did it in 2014
Anything is Possible 5K, Bethesda, MD/Washington, DC in early Nov (This race occurs when Daylight Savings ends, so you end up with a negative time. You start in the future and end in the past.)
It’s a Wonderful Run 5K, Seneca Falls, NY in mid-December (Bridge Street Bridge was the inspiration for the bridge scenes in the classic, It’s a Wonderful Life. Did this in 2015.
Do you have any other suggestions? Feel free to let me know other races that I should consider.
