VENTURA HALF MARATHON
September 7, 2104
This is the third time this year that I have run a race ending at The Ventura Pier. It was my first time running this particular race, The Ventura Half Marathon.
First of all, who doesn’t love a beach-side expo? Saturday was a beautiful day to stroll along the Ventura Pier.
Two great charities! Check out their websites!
There was even expo entertainment!
This pre-race dinner was extra special be cause we shared it with our friends Marci and Scott. We all enjoyed carb loading together. I know, I should have had the waiter take our picture just for this spot!
It was still dark when we got to the pier for the full marathon start. The race started right on time. After wishing my husband a great race, I walked around a bit before the start of the half marathon which also went off without a hitch.
I did not run my best race. This was due to my own leg/foot issues, not the course which was a nice, flat course. And, I have to ask again, who doesn’t love a Beach Party Finish-Line?! There was a lot going on around the Ventura Pier all day long!
We had a great time celebrating with Marci, Scott, and Katie. It was Marci and Scott’s first ever Half Marathon which made it extra special for all of us! And for our friend Katie, she PR’d! Great day for all! BTW, Katie makes the adorable outfits she always wears at Chase This Skirt!
If you raced this weekend, what where some of your race day highlights?
