I'm taking the plunge and doing my first blog link up. I'm apologizing in advance if I commit a link up faux pas! Someone please let me know if I do, so I can
cry myself to sleep rectify my mistake!
Today's link up is Five Things I Love About Race Day. And I've got lots o' pictures!
I know not every race requires travel, but I do love a good racecation. I don't tend to travel for anything less than a half marathon, so the excitement of the race in addition to being on vacation is really fun.
|Plus, I can then justify vacation food and wine.|
2.) Meeting up with friends.

Since becoming a blogger, I have met some really cool people. Some I have actually met in person and some I hope to meet in the future. There is a commraderie that exists among runners, especially those that use social media.

3.) The Scenery

It's always fun to run in a new location. The miles tick by faster when you have new things to look at.

Plus, it's not too often you get to see a bunch of fairy tale princes just hanging around.
|Why, hello there.|
4.) Costumes and Outfits
I always have intentions of putting together a costume for Disney races, but it usually ends up pretty half assed. I love seeing everyone else's costumes, however.

I certainly don't mind getting a prize after a long run! I'm not as medal crazy as I used to be, but let's be real. I still enjoy getting one and I'm certainly not turning it down!
