cut my planned 22 miler short to 14 because of the awful cold and polluted air in the valley. I just felt totally drained trying to keep warm, more like not being able to get warm or maintain a constant body heat especially to the extremities. Oh well I'll pick up the mileage tomorrow as the weather gypsies say the Salt Lake valley is supposed to get up to balmy mid-summer like 31 degrees. Oh boy, yippee, I can hardly wait.

4 miles in 25 degree weather......great taper stuff.

Thought I'd just add this:

Picture this..."a start wreathed in light fog, led out by a covey of restored classic woody sedans and lifeguard vehicles," complete with surfboards on top! Marathon & Beyond Magazine calls it a "perfect start/finish." All races begin to the Beach Boys' soundtrack Surfin' USA and the cheers of local surfers from Huntington Beach's own surfing clubs. This exclusive oceanfront course is a classic California Dream! Run by the famous Huntington Beach pier and through scenic Huntington Central Park. The beachfront running path winds through the famed surfing beaches of Southern California. Retro surf bands entertain along the way and the Finish Line Festival includes a beach side beer garden and BBQ in the California sun. Finishers receive bodacious surfboard medals.

Surf City, Here We Run!

Hey Ronnie, Mindy and Marcie, are you ready to rumble........?

what a running day. Got up late in the morning and when I got around to getting out the door it started raining along with the 30 to 40 mph gusting winds. So I waited about an hour watching the weather and was lucky enough to find a sucker hole in the clouds. I waited and was rewarded with a period of time without any rain or snow......although the winds continued.......Oh well I got in my 8 miles out and back up and down the Sandy hills. 7 days till the Surf City USA Marathon.....
