I ran yesterday. I stuck to the treadmill because the 100+ degree heat index didn't sound too appealing.

This is Hal Hidgon's Intermediate Half Marathon program. I am currently in week 7. So as you can see, today is a much needed rest day!
I thought I'd share with you all my "Race Bucket List" and why I want to do each one. It's not very realistic, but I'm not putting pressure on myself to acctually accomplish all of these. They would just be fun to do if I had the opportunity.
- Rock N Roll Half Marathon-Chicago, IL
- I loved the RNR Half I did in Nashville and Chicago would be flatter!
- Rock N Roll Virginia Beach-Virginia Beach, VA
- I've never been to Virginia Beach, but its close enough to drive and it sounds fun!
- Rock N Roll Washington DC-Washington DC
- Already signed up for this, but running past all of the government buildings and monuments just sounds fantastic!
- Rock N Roll Raleigh-Raleigh, NC
- I've just heard Raleigh is really cool!
- Marine Corps Half- Fredricksburg, VA
- I have family in Fredricksburg so it'd be fun to see them, but this is also just a really big race with a HUGE medal
- Disney Princess Half Marathon-Orlando, FL
- Disney princesses. Need I say more?
- Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon-Orlando, FL
- Good food. The whole reason I run (if I'm honest)
- The Hapalua Half-Honolulu, HI
- One of the biggest halves in the country, and come on, HAWAII!
- Chicago Half Marathon-Chicago,
- It'd be fun to do the Chicago marathon, but that's a little to intense for me, so this is the compromise
- Key West Half Marathon-Key West, FL
- Again, location, location, location
- Nike Women’s Half Marathon- San Francisco, CA
- They give you a Tiffany necklace at the finish line. That's pretty darn sweet
- One America 500 Mini-Marathon-Indianapolis, IN
- This one ends on the Indy 500 track. Don't like racing, but it'd still be really cool.
- Pro Football Hall of Fame Half Marathon-Canton, OH
- My love of football and my love of running put together
- Rock N Roll Dublin
- Would be closely followed by a month long trip to England.
