Sunday is the La Jolla Half Marathon. I only signed up because I want the San Diego Triple Crown Medal this year, and I'm already planning to run Carlsbad Half Marathon and the AFC Half Marathon. I've been worried about the hill, though. It's a monster. I knew it was there when I registered, but I just put it out of my head.
Action 392 - Watch The Road. And for the last couple of days, I have been. Why? Because I work on Camino del Mar, and the La Jolla Half Marathon course will take me directly past my office. From my desk, I can look out the window and see the road where I will run less than forty feet away.
This is a first for me. I have never lived or worked on the actual race course before. It's been a bit weird, really. But for better or worse, it's been on my mind for days. And come Sunday, I'll run that road, climb that hill, and secure that medal.
Come on, La Jolla Half. I'm ready.
