|They lost to OU??? I cannot show my face around the block!|
After the MiT and NOBO workouts, a group of us went to breakfast (perhaps the best part of group runs). Over breakfast the idea of destination races came up.
Here's the deal. Every year, Mark goes on a golfing weekend trip with his guy buddies. I asked him if he planned to do it again this year (considering Avery's existence), and he does. SO - if he gets a baby free weekend where I'm left watching her by myself - I think that means that I get one too. Right? Right?
He seemed to agree. My idea is that I travel with running friends (or perhaps by myself if I have to) to a destination race. And by destination, I mean not here in Columbus. LOL.
Any ideas or suggestions???? I'm ideally looking for a Spring or Fall race. Half marathon might be ideal with the rest of my schedule that I'm already planning...but I'd consider a full marathon for the fall. If I can convince the Lucky 13's, I'd also consider a marathon relay.
I'm already thinking that the Las Vegas Rock n' Roll marathon in 2013 might be on the schedule too...because Sarah said she'd go with me! (That could be my destination race for 2013).
Thoughts? Race suggestions? Have you ever done a destination race? (i.e. a race where you had to travel). Any big tips for those types of races?
