Run with me in the inaugural @encinitashalfmarathon! Save 10% on your entry using discount code: STAYGREAT. I'm so excited for 13.1 miles of oceanfront joy -- but also a teeeensy bit (ok, a lot) nervous about attempting a new PR again. In December, I missed my goal by 7 minutes and failing crushed me. I just didn't have a great race or a great day -- and that's the sad reality of running sometimes. But, what I LOVE about runners is that we always try again, even when history wants to make us doubt ourselves...we jump right back into training with increased determination. If you're in Southern California, I hope you'll join me in pursuit of your own big, scary goals at the Encinitas Half Marathon! It's flat and fast and going to be a blast. (Oh, and a we'll get to feast on a REAL post-race breakfast, guys. Cannot wait. )
