I've traveled to my last few events, and that makes them more fun to do but more stressful to get to. I have to pack extra running gear to make sure I am prepared for different weather conditions, have to sleep in a different bed, and usually try to work in a social call or two in the host city. But not for my next event.
Action 093 - Run Local. The next event is the San Diego Half Marathon, an inaugural run through downtown, along the harbor, through Hillcrest, to Balboa Park, and finally back downtown to Petco Park. It's the only event that I'm running here in my own backyard, and I'm looking forward to it. I'll get a good night's sleep at home, be able to decide that morning what gear to run in, and then be at the fabulous Gossip Grill for breakfast.
Best of all, I'll be sporting one of these bad boys at the finish!
Think Local? You bet!
