If you've been reading my blog, you know that this past year was my crazy running year. I completed a 5K, a 4 miler, 3 half marathons, and a marathon. Here is the secret to what makes the long distances bearable. This picture was on my Places to see in California widget. It is the San Diego Bay and skyline. I ran this very path a multitude of times while training. It was also part of the America's Finest City Half! And that is my running secret: find somewhere flat and beautiful with marine layer and cool breezes!!
