Bucket List Bitches

Everyone has a bucket list.

A couple girlfriends and I decided we wanted to run one 5K a month for the whole year. We call ourselves the Bucket List Bitches. As of now we are 7 races in, we try to sign up for the races early so we get a discounted rate. We also try to sign up for races that include a metal if possible or we make our own metals.

The races we have completed are:

January – Polar Dash, Held in Minneapolis, this race was pretty cold but we got hot chocolate at the finish line.

February – Valentines Day Run, This one was around Lake Nokomis, This run we had perfect weather.

March – Everybody’s Irish, Around Lake Harriet, Great weather again, we were getting lucky!

April – Y-Run, Around Lake Calhoun, pretty sure we ran through the rain for this race.

May – Daisy Run, At Rosland park, we had to run around the lake 3 times in the rain, it was so cold and wet.

June – Lederhoselauf 5K, We ran in St.Paul, It was sunny and hot. We did get a pickle and beer at the finish line.

July – Inflatable 5K, At Running Aces, This one was a hot one and they ran out of water at the half way mark.

August – Wicked Wine Run, This one was our favorite so far!

September – Twin Cities in Motion, at the state capital grounds.

October – Night Nation Run, at canterbury Park.

We always grab a bloody mary and food after every race. So in a way you could say we are running for Bloody’s!

If you have a bucket list to get through, I suggest added a couple friends to help encourage you and join in on the fun.
