Day 312/365: The 2015 Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay

We did it!  We successfully finished our second half marathon of the year.


Everyone has their reasons for training to run a marathon or a half marathon.  Some people want to set PRs (personal records).  Some like having the sense of accomplishment; others go for the experience and to run with friends.  And then there’s me.  I just like to eat.

Post-race breakfast!

Day 311/365: The Saturday Before The Big Event


This afternoon we left Morro Bay and drove up to Monterey Bay for the Big Sur Half Marathon tomorrow.  I brought the Cabin Fever sock and knitted during the drive, finishing the sock in the first hour.  I didn’t bring any other knitting projects, so now I have to find other ways to entertain myself.

Speaking of entertainment, I thought this was amusing:  Our hotel room is old school fancy.  There is a gas fireplace and a cathedral ceiling with solid wood beams.  There is also a telephone within easy reach from the toilet.  You know, for those times when you’ve got to take care of business– while you’re taking care of business.  Tee hee.


P.S. We went down to the front desk to ask about staying another night and were informed that we could, but Day 2 we’d be housed across the way in their other, newly renovated building.  Apparently, renovations for our current building start tomorrow.
