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?
