Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Destination Races

Did you hear?!?  WHM has added another location. Let's hear it for Bloomington, MN!  Whoo-hoo!  I love destination races. It is so fun to run in cool, new places.  Plus, I really like the idea of getting some running buddies together and planning a girls trip.  I have so many groovy memories of race weekends.  I'll never forget the hotel fiasco in Phoenix -- or the introduction of Fa Strunner in Monterey -- or drawing on the little bus in San Francisco -- or jammin to Tiao Cruz on the way to Napa -- just to name a few.  Such fun times!

And, there are so many more races to run, places to visit, and memories to make!  St. Petersburg, Austin, New York, Nashville, St. George, Outer Banks, Chicago are on the top of my list.  What's on your running bucket list?


  1. I just signed up for Cincinnati Flying Pig...come joine me! It's a really fun weekend and super race.

  2. Sounds like a fun race! I have seen it advertised in magazines. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
