My Last Race ..............

On January 7, 2012, I will run my last AG (65-69) race. I had been running for 5 years under this Age Group and reluctantly has to move on ..... to the next  AG (70-74). There will be tremendous dropped in number of runners at this AG.  Less than 1/2 % of all runners today will be still running when they reach this age group  I am blessed to still  able to lace my shoes and answer the starting gun come February 5 to run Stage 4 of my journey at the Surf City Marathon in Huntington Beach.

 Southern California Half Marathon & 5K, which celebrates its 21st annual running in 2012 as the official warm-up road race for other California races like the Los Angeles Marathon, the O.C. Marathon and the Surf City Marathon later in the year.

Following a route through the area known as the Woodbridge Loop, the Southern California Half takes runners on a mostly flat (though occasionally hilly) course through suburban neighborhoods, city park areas and along the waters of the San Diego Creek.

Happy New Year!!!!
