Wednesday Wonderfulz #4, Race edition

You know that saying “a day late and a dollar short”? Well I am almost a day late and a post short.

This month has flown by and I’ve been busy and distracted and unfortunately the blog is suffering. But  I’ve been thinking about this theme for a while and am excited to share my favorite races with you.

And don’t forget to check out Lynda’s post at Fitnessmomwinecountry. 

Wednesday Wonderfulz final 2

I’m coming up on the 3rd annual Patriot Half Marathon, this half was my first. It will always have a special place in my heart. It was my first half and last year it was my first sub 2 hour half. I have a PR in mind for this year as well. It’s in the town where I live, our Running Club hosts it. We have home field advantage of being able to train the course. It’s so great to run a race surrounded by so many people you run with every week.  You can find my review of last year’s race here.  If you are in the Dallas area come join us! You can find info on the 5k, half relay and half marathon here.

Next up is the Healdsburg Half Marathon. This was my first destination race and first costume race. I made a Minnie Mouse costume to wear. It was my second half marathon. John and I had a great trip to San Francisco and the wine country for this race. I love that area and can’t wait to go back. This race is pretty popular and usually sells out early. I ran this race in October 2012. It’s a point to point race and at the end there’s a costume contest, bands, wine tasting and food! You can find the info on this race here and my re-cap here.

Several others top my list of favorites, most of them are half marathons. The Cowtown Half and 5k/10k will always be on my list of races to run. Zooma Texas Half, also has a 10k. It’s a tough course but such a fun race and fun weekend.  You can find more race reviews on my blog on the Races & Discounts page.

I love to race. It brings out that competitiveness I didn’t remember I had.
