…another race by the sea! It’s the… Surfer’s Path Marathon and Capitola Half Marathon event on May 19th 2013!
I know, I know, I have YET to run my FIRST half marathon and I’ve signed up for yet ANOTHER HALF (as part of an early birthday present to myself, b-day is tomorrow!)! Am I crazy or do I subconsciously know that I will be back into the full running groove someday soon (?)…. Anyway, this is another event in my neck of the woods! After looking online, it turns out that I have actually RUN ~ 5 miles of the course when I used to live in the area! How awesome is that?! It will be my first ‘most familiar’ course! I’m SO PUMPED! It will probably be my last run in the area for quite some time (possibly years) because I am hoping to graduate a month or two after this race and move back to where my family is to find a job (fingers crossed!). But maybe I will find a job in the area and a place to live around here…guess I’ll just have to wait and see! Either way, this run will be a nice way to remember the good times I had while living in the area (and if I truly will be graduating soon) as well as my graduate journey for my Masters!
Here are some picts of my dog playing in the East Cliff Beach waves (which I will run by during the race!)
What are your favorite memories of the ocean (if you have ever been)?
