Today I’m linking up for the Friday Five gals and Tuesday on the Run ladies (on a Friday). I finally caught up with blogging and saw the TotR topic was bucket list races this week and wanted to play along.
Now, for the top 3 races on my bucket list:
Lobsterman Olympic. triathlon + lobster + Maine = happy Stacey. Oh and it’s in Freeport, home of L.L. Bean, one of my favorite companies.
Ironman Hawai’i 70.3…another race on the Big Island. I LOVE Hawai’i and I can’t wait to get back there.
USAT Age Group Nationals (wherever it may be the year I qualify). Yep, you have to qualify to get to race this one. I really enjoy the Olympic and sprint distances and hope to continue to improve next season. Lots of hard work ahead of me, but I know I can do it!
Dream come true race:
Ironman KONA. The ultimate bucket list race for a triathlete. I have to mention this because this race is happening tomorrow and you’d better believe I’ll be streaming it live starting at 12:25pm and dreaming about racing IMWC Kona on the Big Island one day. But first…I have to qualify. This is definitely a big-scary,long-term, life-goal kind of dream because it takes a TON of commitment, sacrifice and heart to make it to Kona. You know what they say, dream big 🙂
And while this doesn’t actually involve running the race, a race-related bucket list item of mine is to spectate the Boston Marathon. Just watching the race on my laptop I get chills and all the feels, I can’t even imagine being there in person. The energy is just incredible.
What is one race on your bucket list?
