Hellllo Friday…..great to see you again! This weekend is full of activities and I am excited for each one of them. Today I am linking up with Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia and the theme is Trips. Since I like to combine vacation + running, I thought I would share Five Trips/Racecations I Would Like to Take.
Last year I missed a family trip to Paris, so I would love love love to visit this city and run the Paris Marathon one day (good luck to Sue this weekend). Donnez-moi tous les croissants, s’il vous plait (give me all the croissants, please). Note: Registration for the 40th Paris Marathon opens on April 15th 🙂
2. Big Sur/Carmel/Monterey
Following grad school I had a little fun-employment before work began. My friend Jenn and I flew into San Francisco and took road trip to San Diego where we celebrated our friend’s bachelorette. We drove along the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH)…. amazing views of Big Sur. It would be fun to go back and run the Big Sur Marathon or the Big Sur Half Marathon.

I am very fond of the Pacific Northwest after trips to Seattle and Vancouver – the people, the food (of course), the vibe, and the scenery…so Portland had to make the list. Another plus? My good friends from b-school moved there almost a 1.5 years ago – it would be so nice to see them and also see their adorable son! I’m thinking maybe the Portland Marathon or Eugene Half Marathon in the future.

After visiting the charming Charleston, South Carolina this past winter I immediately added Savannah, Georgia to my run/travel list. The Publix Savannah Half Marathon is a strong contender.

Konnichiwa, Japan! Lights + sushi + history + so much more! I wish the Tokyo Marathon coincided with the blooming of their cherry blossoms. Speaking of cherry blossoms…good luck to everyone running this weekend!
