MBE: Best Racing Locations

Monday Brain Exchange is sponsored by Jill at Finishing is Winning.

Question: Where was the best place you have ever raced and why? Where is your dream place to race??

Hmmm...  My favorite run was in Honolulu, Hawaii, but I haven't raced there.  That's a pretty tough call.  I haven't raced in any especially exotic places, so I guess I'm just going to have to go with Walt Disney World.  I've done 3 Disney Marathons, 1 Disney Half Marathon and 3 shorter races in The Happiest Place on Earth, and it has to be my favorite.  They do know how to put on a great race, and the weather is (most of the time) pretty good.  I do love it there :)

Now, my dream place to race...  I don't know.  There are two races that I consider my dream races.  Big Sur seems like it would be spectacular and amazing.  I'd love to see it, and I consider it my "Boston" or ultimate goal.  I'd also love to someday do the London Marathon, but I don't know when that will happen since I don't usually reserve that much vacation time for my running.

Did you think I'd say somewhere like Bonaire or the Cayman Islands??  No way, man.  Too hot.  When I'm in the Caribbean, I want to dive, not run :)

Big Sur is on my top ten list too!

Boston, New York, Chicago, Big Sur, London, Great Wall... these are all on my "list."

So far, I would say my favorite place I have run (raced) is Disney.
