Announcing State 17!

For a long time my dad’s dad has been inviting me to run my state race in his current hometown.  For one reason or another, I’d never been able to commit.  After about 3 mailings of newspaper clippings, registration info and more invites I am pleased to announce that state 17 will be:

ARIZONA!

State 17!

The race is right around the corner: February 6!

Grandpa lives in Sedona and he has bragged on their local race to me since this dream was born.  In lieu of a Rock n’ Roll or other “chain” race in Phoenix, I opted for the scenic Sedona (Half) Marathon.  Just from browsing the website I can tell this will give my Revel Rockies race a run for the “most scenic race” crown.

Since I’m still focusing on 5k training I have no goals for this race except to finish, take beautiful pictures and enjoy the scenery.  I’d also like to enjoy our day trip to the Grand Canyon the day following the race, so it certainly will not be an all out effort day for me.

Where’s your next race?  Anything in Sedona or the Grand Canyon you recommend to do or eat?

  1. OMG!!!! You will love Sedona. Unbelievably spiritual, and they say there are some powerful energy vortexes there. I married my second husband there in Oak Creek Canyon. Plan several days, and the only thing I don’t recommend doing is marrying my second husband there!

    • Haha, I have no plans to marry your second husband, or anyone else 🙂 I’ll have Friday and race day in Sedona, and then Sunday we’re day tripping to the grand canyon! Can’t wait to share stories!
