Y’all. It’s official. I just signed up (and paid a hefty chunk) for my bucket list race: the 2017 Dublin Marathon.
Sure, I’ve done three full marathons and eight half marathons at this point, but never before have I been so excited to fork over hundreds of non-refundable dollars. (Side note: If you’re not a runner, you may not be aware that most if not all races are 100% non-refundable and non-transferable. It seriously doesn’t matter how good your excuse is. They just don’t do it.)
Anyway, I am over the moon excited to have Dublin booked. Honestly, over the past five years of running and racing, I’ve gotten to feeling kind of complacent when signing up for a new race. But this, this is special.
Not only is it on my life bucket list, it will be my first marathon outside of the States!
Now, I just need to find the cheapest flight I can….and hunker down on training!
Until next time,
