LA MARATHON 3/18/2012
Los Angeles California
I love LA and I really loved that it didn't rain.  18,729 finishers and I was one of them.  I finished 6:32:42
The course starts at Dodger Stadium and ends at Santa Monica Pier.  We traveled through Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Rodeo Drive.

St. Patrick's Day Trail Marathon  3/17/2012
Riverside California
St. Patrick's Day Trail Marathon was held at Sycamore Canyon Park in Riverside.  The course was a challenging single track four mile loop.  The marathon did the loop six times and a small loop at the end.  I finished in 7:32:18
It never rains in Southern California...
I had ten miles of hard rain...
I managed to turn the grey skies blue...
Marathoning lets me be my true authentic self. It reveals my weaknesses and my strengths. It shows what my limits are, and what I am truly capable of .  Marathoning brings out the best and the worse in me.  It shows that if I push through and persevere that I can accomplish anything.  Marathoning is who I am and who I want to be.

  1. Great that no rain for LA this year! Wish I'd been there. If marathoning brings out YOUR worst, it's pretty darn good 8)
