Kelly is fresh off her latest destination racing adventure — running a half marathon through California’s majestic redwoods! — and she talks about the planning that went into this 10-day trip out west with her husband Chris, who ran the race’s 5K. Coryn, who happened to be out in California with Kelly for a few days (they attended an industry conference together) talks about finding some time to run the hills of San Francisco together.
Coryn goes on to share her experiences traveling to Chicago for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon this past July (things got interesting when a storm came rolling in) and to Grand Rapids for Gazelle Girl Half Marathon earlier in the year. All three runners offer up been-there, done-that advice, tips and tricks for making the most of your race trip, including the importance of making restaurant reservations ahead of time, finding the best lodging, and pre-planning (don’t forget your race fuel and go-to pre-race breakfast!) to ensure a memorable and seamless destination race experience.
Also on the show: news about this coming Saturday’s Great Beerd Run at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, and the different ways to enjoy Traverse City Beer Week, which kicks off the day before this race and continues through Nov. 17, 2016.
