Just in case you are not connected with me on Facebook or Twitter, I got some big news last week! I won the lottery! Well, the lottery for the Nike Women’s Marathon that is!
I am super excited! This will be my third half marathon and my first ever trip to California! I love using races as an excuse to travel!
I’ve already started checking into hotels and airfare. I may need to win the ACTUAL lottery in order to afford this trip. Geesh! But I figure, I have 6 months to plan and save for it. I can do it! Right?!?!
I am hoping to make a mini vacation out of this destination race.
I can’t wait to see this.
And ride this.
And go here.
And lots more stuff!
I will also get to meet this girl! And run another race with one of my Tough Mudder team mates!
It’s guaranteed to be a good time! Especially since I learned two very valuable lessons from my race in Vegas. 1) Do not walk all over the place the night before the race. 2) Do not ignore my “no drinking the night before a race” rule.
Have you been to San Francisco? What are some things that I must do while I am there???
Or do you have any tips about competing in destination races?
