Do your New Year’s Resolutions include running a race? Mine definitely does! I want to run one of all races from a 5K to a full marathon. The half marathon I will be completing is the OC Half Marathon. I mentioned awhile back that I am a proud OC Marathon Ambassador or 2016. The OC Marathon offers a 5K, Half Marathon and Marathon. I ran the half marathon last year and absolutely LOVED every moment of it. I have decided, I loved the half so much last year, I want to return to the half again including a personal PR goal. I am also planning to run the 5K race on Saturday as a shake out run before the big race! As we get closer to the race, I will share my personal training plan to get ready for the race and hopefully beat my race time from last year.
Signing Up For The OC Half Marathon
The course, the organization, the people and the race itself are the epitome of the perfect race. The race is alongside the beach, includes easy transportation from the start and finish line and a beautiful medal to commemorate your race. Added bonus: if you run all 3 Southern California half or full marathons consecutively (OC, Long Beach and Surf City), you can get the Beach Cities Challenge medal. The 1 pound medal and bragging rights are worth starting the Challenge! Plus, this Friday is the last day before prices increase! So if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to start saving money, here is your chance to conquer two goals in one! What are you waiting for? Head over to the website, sign up here and come run with me!
Remember to check back this week for training plans for the 5K and half marathon race. Happy Tuesday!
