Don't be a wimp.
Race Bucket List- What races would you love to do if you had the time/money? These can be as realistic or unrealistic as you want!
I am going to breakdown this month’s topic into 3 categories; 1) my realistic race bucket list, 2) my “it could (maybe) happen” race bucket list, and 3) my unrealistic race bucket list.
Here we go…
My Realistic Race Bucket List
Oh, and most importantly, I have had the privilege of attending Magic Week on an annual basis since I was 7 years old because Colon is where my grandparents live.
Does Magic Week sound lame? Well, let me tell you, it isn’t.
Magicians come to Colon from all around the world during Magic Week. During Magic Week, magicians walk the streets of Colon and perform magic tricks for free! Magic shows occur on a regular basis, and new magic tricks are debuted. Plus, there is a Colon Arts and Crafts Fair.
No, I am not playing a trick on you. No, this is not an illusion. Magic Week is really cool.
The Magic Week 5k
As far back as I can remember, Magic Week has concluded with a 5k. I have never participated in the Magic Week 5k race.
Embarrassing fact of the day: I have never participated in ANY 5k race!
I know, I know, I KNOW, I am a weirdo. I skipped right over 5k and 10k races, and started with half marathons.
It is time for me to fix this problem. I have an announcement to make.
I WILL RUN THE MAGIC WEEK 5K IN 2015!!!
I am willing to bet that it will be magical.
My "It Could (Maybe) Happen" Race Bucket List
Well, running is fun gosh darn it, and I want to share the experience of a race with my family!
This doesn't mean that we all need to run the same pace, but I do want everyone to run the same race on the same day. Hey, and maybe we could wear matching outfits!
The likelihood of this happening?
My Brother: He is gun-ho for any challenge.
My Husband: He will run, but he will only commit to running my pace (cool with me!).
My Mom: Maybe??? So far, she has declined all of my race invitations, but she has upped the speed on her treadmill walks, and has even started jogging a couple of days per week.
My Sister: My major challenge. Direct quote: “I will never run a race. I hate running. The only reason I would run is if I were being chased.” Hmm…anyone willing to chase her? Getting her to run a race is going to be tough.
I don’t care when or where this family race occurs, but a family race is high on my race bucket list.
My Unrealistic Race Bucket List
- My brother-in-law has a goal to run a marathon in every state. So far, he has successfully completed marathons in 23 states. I love this challenge, and I wanted to add "run a marathon in every state" to my race bucket list. Then I ran one marathon...
I don’t see 49 more marathons in my future. This one isn't going to happen, but it's fun to imagine.
- I want to run a race in outer space. Too unrealistic? Well, I like to dream big.
