I got a very exciting email last week from a dear friend who lives in a European capital city and works for a Famous Boss. The aforementioned Famous Boss wanted to do a particular half-marathon but needed information. My friend knew exactly who would know how to find this out! Moi!! So I had a thrilling couple of hours googling a particular half-marathon, emailing organisers etc, to find out the answer. It was a triumph, and my friend earned lots of brownie points!!
(I’m also pitching for the Famous Boss and my friend to come to SF for the half-marathon in June but we’ll see how that goes).
Anyway, now I can’t get the thought of that particular half-marathon out my head. It’s a city I know and love and I REALLY fancy running it. It’s not an option this year, but it inspired a sit-down with a glass of wine to put together a bucket list of half-marathons I want to do.
Here’s my current list.
- Lake Bled, Slovenia
- Berlin or Munich
- San Francisco second half
- Big Sur
- Petaluma (you get a cow-bell as a medal)
- Seattle or Portland or Eugene
- Boulder (I have a crush on Colorado)
- My new favourite city, Tokyo
- Somewhere in the Canadian Rockies
Where’s on your list? Do you fancy any of these? Or which ones do you think I should add? Any not in Europe or the US? I’m aware that I’m a bit biased here.
