I really love running this marathon. The Surf City USA race Directors have their stuff together. This is my second time to run this marathon and I'm duelly impressed. From the Expo, to the baggage check, to beer tent at the end, this race went like a finely tuned watch. The California laid back lifestyle attitude is alive and well at Surf City.

This years Surf City USA Marathon and half marathon drew in about 20,000 runners with about 2400 runners choosing to run the marathon and the bulk of the runners doing the half.

The starting temprature was at @ 53 degrees with a slight breeze flowing off the ocean inland, which made the start very comfortable. The "Woodies" lead the way to start the race to the Beach Boys song, Surf City USA...it was great!

I chose to start my race at about 8 minute miles and held that pace till about 13 to 15 miles out. Then I got a bit distracted and my page got a little higher.I probably should have started a bit slower, but it felt just right and I got to start my race running with Mindy, Marcie and Ronnie. Oh well, I had a great time and it was one of those no pressure races where you don't have to prove anything to anybody. I continued my race to finish with a 3:57:47 finish time. I had planned on going a bit faster but thats not what happened. I ended up 8th place in my old man division and 609th overall in the marathon.

By the end of the race the temps were up to around 70 to 75 degrees, and I was surely enjoying it.

After finishing the race I met up with Hillbilly Runner and we took a time out in the beer tent, had a few beers, met a few new runners and then we left and got ready for a Superbowl party at the Waterfront Hilton Hotel. What a day, what a weekend, whatta great marathon.

TYI.........
