And the Sister Runcation 2014 Is…

It’s been settled: Sister Runcation 2014, here we come.

It will be in a city slightly warmer than Wisconsin…

A little sandier. And maybe…a tad prickly.

But, so beautiful.

I can’t wait to cross that finish line!

That’s right: My sisters and I are going to Phoenix, Arizona, to run the BMO Harris Bank Phoenix Half Marathon on Saturday, March 1st. Woohoo!

Why Arizona? My friend, Kelly, told me that Arizona is great in February-March, because it’s warmer, but not humid. Last year, we ran a race in Florida and it was unbelievably humid (= torture), so we didn’t want to make that mistake again this year.

We thought it’d be a fun change of pace to escape our frigid homes for some warm & sunny desert scenery.

We’re all signed up, our flights are booked, and we’re on the hunt for a hotel. We’re stumped so far on where to stay and what to do while we’re there. Any suggestions?

Have you ever been to Arizona? What do you think we should do there?

Where would you love to escape to and run a race?

I wouldn’t mind escaping to Hawaii or some other tropical island to run right about now!

P.S. If you want to sign up, it’s $80 until the 15th, then the price goes up again. You can save $10 off the Phoenix Marathon (or half marathon) by using discount code FRIENDS10.

  1. Sorry I did not respond sooner!! YES!! I was thinking of going to AZ this weekend as well- to do what I love most about spring- SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL! Sorry for the all caps…I’m just so excited!

    Perhaps we should try and meet up one of these days soon and I can tell you about the area, I have been going annually for about 10 years now. GREAT choice!!
