A Year Ago Today I Started Running

January 18, 2015 I decided to start c25k. Again. I don't know what finally made it click, but something did and I have never looked back. It's so crazy to think that a year ago I thought I was going to die running week 1 day 1. And now a year later I am starting training for my second half marathon, the first of two, possibly three I have planned this year. Yes, you read that right. I have decided to run another half marathon. It really does blow my mind how far you can come in a year when you put your mind to it.

After I ran an easy 5k yesterday...never in a million years did I think I would say that!

In honor of my "runversary" I decided to share my running bucket list. In no particular order:

Any RunDisney race: We were at Disney during the WDW Marathon weekend and it was so weird to see all the runners and not be running. Which never ever did I think something like that would come out of my mouth! When we booked our trip and I realized we would be there at the same time all of the races had been sold out. While I have no desire to go to Disney right after we were just there, I will run a race there sometime. 

Across the Bay 10k: I saw someone post about this in one of the running groups I'm in and I was immediately intrigued. It's a race across the bay bridge over the Chesapeake Bay. When we lived in PA, I used to meet a friend who lived in Maryland at an outlet mall on the Eastern Shore, right before you cross this bridge. I know that there are longer bridges out there but the first time I went across it, I thought it was so cool and being able to run across would be even cooler. I'm running the River Run here that crosses the Ohio River so adding another race like this to my list would be awesome.

Urban Bourbon: This is a half marathon in Louisville where you get to drink bourbon afterwards. It's a big race that's close. And it just seems like a lot of fun.

Broad Street Run: This is a 10-mile race in Philly. There are a lot of Philly peeps in one of my running groups and they seem to have so much fun during this race. I miss Philly at times and it would be nice to go back.

Mighty Mac Bridge Run: I grew up just south of Michigan and everyone I knew had at least one vacation to Mackinac Island, except me. It's somewhere I have always wanted to visit - I even have a vacation all planned and ready to go! There's an 8 mile race around the island or there's a race across the bridge. Either one would be awesome.

Bound the Mound: This is a local trail run about five minutes down the road from me. I have wanted to run it for several years, but I always seem to have something going on that weekend. It was actually my goal 5k the first time I started c25k before I found out I was pregnant with Cecily. It's at Angel Mounds, a Mississippian site that I have posted about before.

Do you have any must-do races?
