Racecation (Also Known As the Reason I Run) | Tuesdays on the Run

Sharing is caring!

Tuesdays on the Run Link Up- every Tuesday we have a new running related topic. Join your favorite running bloggers in linking up each week.

I just got back from a racecation- and heading off to another.

Gee, wonder where I land on the debate Racecation vs Weekend Warrior?

Link up with  Erika, Marcia and me for this week’s Tuesdays on the Run and tell us where you land- are you a runner who stays close to home or do you like to travel to races?

Racecation (Also Known As the Reason I Run)

I’ve made no secret of it: I run so I can go to Disney.

It’s what first drew me into the sport and it’s certainly what kept me here.

I don’t exactly mind local races, and some of them are pretty neat. But they just don’t have a big enough pull for me to keep putting in the miles to participate in.

Sure, I ran a few in Austin and a couple since I’ve lived here. Hey, I even “won” the Cherry Blossom 5K lottery and plan to run that one when Virginia becomes my new location. I’m kinda excited about that!

But overall all: I run so I can go to Disney.

There are a ton of reasons why I runDisney. Here are a few.

In addition to that: it’s always changing, it’s always fun, it’s where my friends from the computer live and it makes me happy.

And since I not only love it, I sell it (runDisney race bibs for 2017, anyone?) it works out well all around!

“Honey, it’s WORK.”

Once my foot is healed, I plan on doing more local races, but I'm all about the Disney racecation! It's what bonds me with my friends, and they keep me motivated to work hard since I always make a list of goals to accomplish before my next race. Instead of carrots, I dangle rD medals. ;)

Speaking of selling bibs, I'm not regretting not buying a Dopey bib while they were available. Nervous about registration!!

I've only been to Disney once for the Princess weekend. I did love how unique of an experience it was. I was lucky enough to meet Jeff Galloway when I went :)

.Running 13.1 miles the perfect excuse to use on my Mr. Grumpy for no guilt on taking a girls trip to WDW!

Yay, team Racecation! But there are some sweet local races. Even local-ish. Wanna sign up for the Hershey 10K with me? :)
