I had a co-worker when I was an intern in D.C., and she spent her summers working at Yellowstone. I think she mostly mowed lawns, but I always romanticized her adventures in my head.

I bet that would make a great backdrop for a race!

For those of us who grew up in the West, the Eastern National Parks seem so unfamiliar. I’d love an excuse to get to know them.

It always seems to me that there is a lot of pressure on the youngest kid in a big family, so I’m especially delighted to see Salem find a creative venture he’s really excited about.

And what a wonderful idea – such a fun way to see a national park.

I grew up in the west where there are lots of national parks. I love them!

We visited Zion’s for the first time over the summer (my 8 and 10 year old boys conquered Angel’s Landing–so proud!), and it was breathtaking.
We also went to Yosemite in the same trip and I spent most of the time slack-jawed.
But I can’t help it–The Smoky Mountains National Park will always be my favorite. I would love to run a 1/2 there!

Rocky and Crater Lake are two of my tops. Yellowstone is always fun for the charismatic megafauna. See also: Glacier. One of these days I’m going to make it to Denali!

Although I am no way ready to run a half marathon! I have only been to a few national parks. But we have one in our backyard – the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in OH. The primary trail is along the old tow path of the Ohio and Erie canal. Many of the original locks are standing along so you can learn about the rich history and be amazed that this canal was dug by hand in such a short time! We especially love to visit in the fall, biking as a family and picking up apples and licorice, exploring some of the interesting side trails.

A subtropical rainforest, beautiful mountains, amazing meadows and the cleanest air possible. Perfect!

I just had a baby…otherwise I’d be trying to sign up for Zion! Luckily there are several parks to choose!

Your parents must have done some things right :) I love this idea of the national park races. Definitely going to sign up for one.
