Where to even begin this post?
I spent the weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. After a horror story with travel (as of now we are not receiving anything), we made it on Friday morning at 3 am East Coast time.
Here is a brief recap of everything outside of the race.
We enjoyed the Scenic views that New Jersey does not offer. I kept thinking I was in a movie because they were so nice!
Lots and lots of blogging meetups…
(Why did we not take a photo Adam?)
With one of my favorite bloggers and people, Kevin!
I had a great time in Phoenix. It was nice to escape the cold of New Jersey and enjoy some warm weather. Outside of running the actual marathon, I did a lot of fun and cool things. Tim and I explored Phoenix and explored the entire city.
One thing I did learn was going to a destination race is tough. I wanted to go hiking and enjoy the views but didn’t want to hike before the marathon (and couldn’t hike after).
Would hiking a few miles the day before a marathon be smart? No, probably not.
I had a great time and Phoenix is a lovely city. I would recommend this race to any of my East Coast friends for the fact that you get out of the cold weather for a few months.
Questions for you:
Have you ever been to Phoenix?
Have you ever done a destination race?
