Now that my 6 races in 6 weeks are over I need a new fix. I spent a little time this weekend looking for a race to do after this weekend’s Santa to the Sea Half.
Luckily there is a Holiday Half Marathon December 15th near LA that will perfectly fill the God 13.1 sized hole in my heart.
I actually ran this race two years ago and had a great time! This really is an ideal time of year for running temperature-wise and cookies-everywhere-so-you-should-be-well-fueled-wise.
The race starts and ends at the LA Fairplex in Pomona. So, it’s a great central location for all my Southern California readers/runners! There is a 5k Run/Walk on Saturday December 14th too.
You can check out the course here. Part of it goes through Bonelli Regional Park, which is pretty!
Both Santa to Sea and the Holiday Half are collecting toys for Toys for Tots! Please bring an unwrapped toy to donate on race day if you are able. It’s a really great cause and today is #GivingTuesday so I thought I’d throw out a reminder!
