@mgol25:  I’m hoping to run the Nike Women’s Half DC!  Gimme that Tiffany’s necklace!  (which is why I’m guessing registration fees are so high, lol!)

Imogene Pass: 17.1 mile trail run in the mountains.  The first 10 miles are uphill, and the remaining 7 are downhill. 

I signed up this year but unfortunately had to drop out due to an injury sustained about 3 weeks before the race.  BOOOO.  But DH did it and I was able to get pictures of him at the Finish Line.

Disney totally sounds like so much fun!  

I wouldn’t mind running the New York Marathon at some point, maybe.  DH has family up there so it would be a great opportunity to catch up with them.  I’m still training for my first post baby half marathon, so I am not sure a full is something I can do in the near future.  We’ll see 🙂

If I do get back into fulls, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to do the Richmond full!

Detroit full marathon (I have done the half and since it’s my hometown I’d love to have both medals from it!)


Princess 1/2 Disney (not a big Disney person at all but I am a Princess, so I should do this one, right? 😉 lol)

ETA – As Dane said, I’d love to do NYC.

If I magically become super fast, I’d love to do Boston…lol (notgonnahappen)

My friend is always doing halfs and they are kind of off the beaten path types, have gotten lots of inspiration from her on which to aim for next!

@mgol25:  Wait, are you me? Those races are on MY bucket list! Also, good luck with your recovery! Hope you continue to improve!

I’m doing the Disneyland Resort Tinkerbell half marathon in January with my daughter and my cousin-in-law. 

Next year, I’m planning on doing the Rock N Roll half marathon in Las Vegas with my brother and possibly my daughter (seriously, who wouldn’t want to run the Strip at night then party till the wee hours?)

LA Marathon in March with my daughter, cousin-in-law, and brother (I’m terrified!)

The Catalina Island Triathlon (sprint distance, maybe next year)

The Catalina Island Marathon (the scenery is incredible and you run all over the island on trails, dirt roads, etc. Sigh… someday…)

The Honolulu Marathon (someday…)

Lastly, I want to do the Solvang Century, a 100 mile bike ride through the Santa Ynez Valley, just north of Santa Barbara, CA (maybe in 2015)

@mgol25:  I’m pregnant and hella out of shape right now, but RnR Las Vegas is on my one-day (5 year? 10 year? haha) bucket list!

I think there is a Napa half or full I’d like to look into. Plus, fun vacation! =)

I’d also love to do a Ragnar.

@mgol25:  I would love to do the Nike Women’s Half in DC as well! I did the SF one last year and it was amazing!

I also want to run the NYC Marathon and Boston but I’ll have to get much much faster!

My biggest bucket list race is definitely Sea Wheeze in Vancouver – all the swag is Lululemon!

@jackieee:  Ragnar is SO FUN! Definitely do one if you get the chance! The bonding experience with your team is awesome and the energy of the whole event is so contagious even when you’re out in the cold at 2am cheering on your runner from the side of the rode. SO FUN!

@Miss Mauverick:  I did the LA Marathon last year with my dad and FI. It was so incredible because people were cheering you on for all 26.2 miles! Getting to run on the streets and through cities normally dead-stopped by traffic was pretty neat too!

I would LOVE to run (in order):

Disney Marathon

Boston/New York Marathons (But I’d have to be a fast runner… And I’m WAY not)

The Bermuda Triangle Runs (1 mile on Friday, 10K on Saturday, Marathon on Sunday)

And half and full Ironmans!

I’ve really enjoyed running halfs, but after doing one 5 months pregnant, I’m ready to move on to the Next Big Thing!

I’m not a runner, but I would love to do the zombie 5k! http://www.runforyourlives.com

I always seem to miss it whenever I am living in/near a city it comes to the timing never works out.  I might be able to do it this year, maybe as a zombie and not a runner though.
