I don’t think I’ve even talked about this, but I am running another marathon in three weeks.
I’ve had my eye on Mountain 2 Beach marathon since they launched it 2011, but we were living in Virginia at that time. Then last year I ran my first 50K around the same time. So this year, I signed up. I love local races for many reasons, but this one just seemed ideal, a gentle downhill course that starts in the mountains of Ojai CA. and ends at the beach in Ventura. It isn’t perfect timing, since I just ran Boston, but my intention is to enjoy myself and see how I feel on race day. I have no expectation of a PR, I just want to go out enjoy the run.
This past Sunday, I went out and did my last 21 miler before tapering. It seems strange to be tapering since I only did one long run… but, I not complaining! Anyway, I ran the first 21 miles of the course – for the most part it is gorgeous! Here are some scenes from the run:
So, on May 26, 2013 I am going to go back out there and do it again, only this time with a few more runners. I love having a “no pressure, let’s have fun” race. Nice isn’t it?
