A Run by the Bay

Disclaimer: I received free entry to Monterey Bay Half Marathon as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

In 2015 I ran a half marathon up in Monterey along the bay.  Back then it was still called the Big Sur Half Marathon. By either name, it’s a gorgeous course.

Mile 2

It had ocean views, it had little rolling hills, it had a bike path, you ran down Cannery Row and through a tunnel!  There was music playing throughout the course via bands or DJ’s, the aid stations were some of the best I had ever seen at the time.  Actually, looking back- they still are.

Did I mention the elites?    I literally ran passed Kara Goucher.  Well, she was like an hour ahead of me and on her way to the finish line but she was still only a few feet from me.

When the opportunity popped up to run the race again with BibRave, I felt like a little kid.  Pick me, pick me!    Yay!!!!!

I am so looking forward to running Monterey Bay again.  Both for the views and hoping for a better last half of the race.  Last time I had some severe GI issues so miles 8-13 were a little rough, haha.

Also, if I miss my PR goal on San Jose, this a good second chance to try again.   Not that I want to miss but it’s good to have a backup plan.
