I really started running lots of races last year (not so much before that) and it seems that with that came a new desire to look for races whenever I’m on a trip. Last year I happened to be in the UK for work and pleasure for 4 weeks and managed to do a 5k ParkRun and a 10k while I was there.
This year we already had one very quick road trip and I did look but could not find a race close enough to where we were (there was a half marathon, but it was over an hour and a half away from where we were staying for a wedding, and it was on the wedding day).
Now I’m planning on another road trip and the only race I could find close to where I will be at any time during the trip is a 3k in Pittsburgh.
I’ve never done a 3k before so that should be fun.
What is even better is, before I signed up I tried to do more research on it and came across their facebook page where there was a very temporary offer for $13 off for the next 2 men who signed up, and the code still worked so I got a real bargain. https://www.facebook.com/TheSweetSprint
I also have a plan, possibly for next year, to take a trip to do this marathon: http://www.marathon.is/reykjavik-marathon, and of course, to see the sights.
Who else plans to run when away on vacation? (Or is it just me?)
