California, here we come – Part 1 of 2

A few days after returning from Jersey, I set out to San Diego for a half-marathon with some friends from college. Two of us ran the half, one of us ran the full (total champ), and we had two of the best cheerleaders along the course encouraging us every step of the way (thanks, Jax and Laura!).

We stayed in the Gaslamp Quarter, and it was so perfect. I ate my weight in cupcakes, went to a local yoga class (twice!), and oh yeah, ran a half marathon.

Finished!

It was wonderful to reconnect with everyone, and we agreed that we should plan trips like this more often. Races, optional.

Why can’t every city be this beautiful on the water?
