I came into Surf City feeling good. I had just finished my 4th marathon of the year and I was so ready to pounce on #5! I love everything about the Surf City course: flat, sea level, fun! What made this marathon especially fun was The Marathon Show's Joe Taricani broadcasting live from the course! And yes, he ran it. All in all, Surf City did not disappoint.
In any case, I've pretty much summed up my whole experience in the first few lines of this race report, so for the rest of this entry, I will take my readers on a photographic journey of this marathon.
First up, the expo:
|Two running super heroes: Dane Rauschenberg and Endorphin Dude!|
|Endorphin Dude and Nordic Moxie!|
|I swear, I didn't even recognize Christy without her Elvis gear on!|
|This Italian Stallion from Utah is always stylin' !|
|I gave Joe an honorary Endorphin Dude headband. DUDE!|
|I finally got to meet Joe Taricani of The Marathon Show at the expo! Here he is interviewing me.|
|Another group shot!|
|Looks like my dog's butt.|
Next up, the carbo load dinner at Buca de Beppo's:
