Race weekend has arrived.
Ya’ll I really need to get better at looking at calendars. 🤣 I am so tired.
Timehop to the rescue! I’ve wanted to run Monterey Bay again since I first ran it back in 2015 but I’ve been so tired this week post work trip. Thursday marked 3 years to the day since I last ran Monterey Bay and the memories popped up. I was reminded of everything I was looking forward to again- party tunnel, Cannery Row, ocean views and how close can I get to the elites????
Let’s do this!
That said, this is my last half of the year. And let’s be real, I haven’t had a good race all year. By good- I mean a race without some form of malady or another. So this race will be a little different.
I REALLY will have no time goals, in my previous posts I always had one in mind even when I said I didn’t; if this takes me 3 hours, so be it. I am going to take all the pictures. Thank all the volunteers. Listen to all the music available on course. Take more pictures. I’m probably going to wear something different than my more standard race outfit. I may leave the pack behind. I am doing race day packet pick up. In short, let’s embrace all things different and just enjoy a nice stroll along the bay.
This will be half #34, I mentioned that at work today and my coworkers found that to be pretty cool. Not because I’ve run 33 before this but because 34 is our office designation. I hadn’t thought about that before- that has to mean something right?
All right, Monterey Bay, let’s do this.
