This weekend I’m headed to Santa Cruz to for the Surfer’s Path Marathon/Capitola 1/2 Marathon! I had my eyes on this race for awhile now, but I only just signed up a few days ago. My marathon training plan calls for a half marathon training run on Sunday, so the timing worked out perfectly. Plus, I’ve never been to Santa Cruz so this gives me a good excuse to explore a new place!
I don’t have any concrete goals for this race. It would be nice to beat my last half marathon time of 1:58, but I’m not putting too much pressure on myself. Santa Cruz is a coastal city and surf town, so I’m mostly looking forward to running by miles and miles of ocean and beaches! I can’t wait to share my experience when I get back 🙂
