As if you couldn’t tell already, I REALLY enjoy running! 🙂 Training for half and full marathons make me happy. I did some searching on some of the most scenic/popular marathons in the U.S. and have decided on a select few that I will make my goal to compete in one day. I’m sure more will be added to the list. 🙂
Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon – When: October – Where: Minnesota – Why: Autumn is my ABSOLUTE favorite season! This marathon is known for its beautiful fall scenery. 🙂
The Boston Marathon – When: April – Where: Boston, MA – Why: Because it’s only the most legendary marathon and is pretty much on every runner’s wish list to someday compete in! My goal is to qualify for the Boston by the time I’m 30. 🙂
The ING New York City Marathon – When: November – Where: New York City, NY – Why: Just to do it! Plus, it gives me a reason to visit the big city. 🙂
The Bank of America Chicago Marathon – When: Mid-October – Where: Chicago, IL – Why: Another marathon just to do because it’s so popular and I want to experience it! 🙂
Steamboat Marathon – When: Early June – Where: Steamboat Spring, CO – Why: One of the most scenic marathons in the U.S.! Plus, it’s in Colorado – where I hope to live someday. 🙂
Crater Lake Rim Marathon – When: Second Saturday in August – Where: Klamath Falls, OR – Why: Runs though the beautiful Crater Lake National Park! Yet another amazing race through some stunning scenery!
