Bucket List? More like ‘Buckle List’.

With the Hardrock and Western States recently in running news, I got to thinking about “the list”.

Every runner has one…

The running “Bucket List’.

Many races make it to the list for the storied history that accompanies them, some for the challenge, Many make the list because, as a runner – it is just “something you have to do“.

The Winged Ling Buckle List:

It should be said, however, this list does not single out the amazing and well-known races I plan on running like Javalina Jundred, Rocky Raccoon, or Angeles Crest, just to name a few of the many. Every race is special on its own way with dedicated race directors, amazing organizers, and passionate volunteers all working tirelessly to make the magic happen.

Thank you to all the folks ‘behind the curtain’ and every runner who has given a word of encouragement to a suffering stranger, or extra Salt Stick tab to a new friend.

See you on the trail.

– The Winged Ling
