My 12 Favorite Races

So, I am totally hopping on the 12 bandwagon.  I’m a little late to the party but I’ve been a bit busy hanging with little man all day long.  We went to the gym, napped, walked, went to the swings and visited DD for some delicious hazelnut coffee.   A perfect day in my opinion.

Anyway onto my 12 favorite races and the 12 reasons I love them.

#1 NJ Marathon

Loved the course but didn’t love what happened in 2012

5 miles before downing a huge turkey dinner makes me feel less guilty about the pumpkin pie.

#6 NYRR Staten Island Half Marathon

Running in my hubs hometown and love the view of the Verrazano

#7 Cranford Jaycees Firecracker 4 Mile

Starting off the 4th of July holiday with a 4 mile run just feels so good.

#8 Disney Princess Half Marathon

My PR, pink tutus and a weekend away with my mom

#9 D.C.National Half and Marathon (now RnR USA)

Our nation’s capitol like you’ve never seen it before.  I get chills thinking about watching the sunrise on the Mall.

#10 Christiana Care Delaware Half Marathon

My sister’s 1st half and my nephews came to cheer us on.

#11 Ridgewood Run

Memorial Day in my hometown and a flat, fast course

    Air Force Marathon in Ohio…a flyover from a military jet (this year the stealth bomber), awesome crowd support, great organization, amazing medals, and the finish line is on the base runway under the wings of retired military aircraft…oh and you get your medal from Air Force officers….awesome to the max!

  2. I feel so cool that I’ve run one of your favorite races :) I really liked the experience of the Indianapolis Women’s Half Marathon. Great support, post-party, pretty course. And, looking back, I liked being with a bunch of ladies.
