Beachfest Marathon

The Chiweenie won't be entering the Insane Asylum anytime soon.

I took Chewbacca along for my marathon double header in southern California this weekend because her nanny was unavailable. I thought it would be fun to go on a road trip with the chiweenie. I packed along her backpack too so that she could actually participate in the marathon with me. With such tiny legs the size of the mozzarella cheese sticks you get at Denny's, the little mutt can really only handle a 5k. The first marathon of this double header weekend was perfect for both of us, as it took place at Dockweiler Beach in Marina Del Ray, and the weather was perfect.

The Beachfest Marathon had a very small turn out, but that's no surprise for Charlie Alewine Racing. I do love the idea of low key races for under 25 runners. Charlie Alewine has been my saving grace during this Titanium quest. Not only does he have multiple marathon weekends at affordable prices, but he allows me to take the early start so I don't have to worry about time constraints. There would be no Titanium for Endorphin Dude if there were no Charlie Alewine. Charlie, if you're reading this, THANK YOU!

In any case, only nine runners showed up for this marathon, but these were the nine regulars that I see every weekend. Party on the beach! Chewbacca was able to get about three miles in before I scooped her up and tucked her into the back pack. Gee, why can't I ride in someone's CamelBack? That would make 26.2 miles go by much faster!

On your marks, get set, GO!!!

50 Staters Mary Fischl and Brad Schultz.
Dale Roberts. This guy always gets a few phone calls from his wife during marathons.
Deo! No tutu today. Low key.
Chris Haines earned a PR today!
Always good to see Rose Marie on the course. She placed first in the half marathon.

It took me well over seven hours to finish this marathon, but that's ok. I took it very easy and had a great time with my dog. I would not have been able to do this at any other marathon. Only at a Charlie Alewine race can I leisurely complete 26.2 miles with a chiweenie without the worry of the sag wagon. Win!

Titanium Score Board: 42 down, 10 to go!


  1. Tonight, talks broke down over Republicans' continued insistence on a short term raise of the debt ceiling, which is something that President Obama, Leader Pelosi and I have been clear we would not support. A short term extension would not provide the certainty the markets are looking for, and risks many of the same dire economic consequences that would be triggered by default itself. Speaker Boehner's plan, no matter how he tries to dress it up, is simply a short term plan, and is therefore a non starter in the Senate and with the President..

    Exciting, goalie Devan Dubnyk said. Why we don want to talk about the last few games. It doesn matter. So competitive, he helped a lot, said Hughes. Days you get up and you don want to work out or skate. But he really dialed in and knows what he wants (tags: Jordan Shoes For Sale Cheap, 2020 Jordan Release Dates, Ray Ban Sunglasses Outlet).
