Palos Verdes Half Marathon – Saturday, May 2, 20009
Wow! What a perfect day to run a half marathon or any race for that matter. The Palos Verdes coastline was overcast, cool and damp. My run was refreshing.
The Sole Runners Full and Half Marathon Training Program spent the fall and winter running many of those streets and local trails yet I had never run this race. I loved running the streets I practice on. The race was well run. There were plenty of water stations and the runners were very friendly. The locals didn’t pay to much attention to us and I wish they were a little more vocal.
The course is hilly, with beautiful views. I think it the hills are fairly equal coming and going. I really like coming down Western and the final stretch was flat and fast. You’ll definitely see the Sole Runners out there next year.
