Santa Cruz to Capitola


Yesterday, I ran the Capitola Half Marathon! I finished in 1:58:41. just 4 seconds shy of my current half marathon PR. My #1 goal this year was to break 2 hours in a half marathon, and I’ve done it twice in a row now! I didn’t go into this race with any strict time goal, so I couldn’t be happier with my performance. The race was an out-and-back course from Santa Cruz to Capitola and back, and I was able to spend a little time in both of these beautiful coastal cities.


Santa Cruz



This was my first time visiting the area, and I was only there for one night-but IΒ definitely want to go back and explore more!

  1. Great race. Under 2 again! Now you just need to take those 5 seconds off and feel better the next half. Congrats!

    • Thank you!! Oh you will definitely be able to! I’ve figured out a few tricks to cut my time down that work for me, like I carry my own water now so I can run through most water stations!

  2. I love Santa Cruz! It would be great to get a race in over there soon. Good work with your time in the half.

    If you, or any of your running followers, would like some personal coaching on how to maximize your workouts and take minutes of your PR, just shoot me an email. I am an elite distance runner and love coaching. No charge or anything, I just enjoy working with athletes to see them reach their potential!
