Last Chance- 2009

I found a new 5K to do.  This will be my last chance to redeem myself in 2009!  Anyone interested in joining me?





This race takes place just prior to the start of the Holiday Bowl Parade.  Here are descriptions of the run, found on the event's website.


"The 15th Annual Bumble Bee 5K Run will take place on the corner of Harbor Drive and Ash St. and finishes near Tuna Harbor Park. Athletes will run past 100,000 spectators. Runners, families and spectators can watch the remainder of the parade that features colorful floats, bands and huge inflatable characters."


Beautiful Waterfront Course...
The race begins at the corner of Harbor Dr. & Ash St. and heads south on Harbor Drive to 8th St., behind the San Diego Convention Center. It continues north along the marina walkway making a loop through Embarcadero Park N., finishing on the walkway just past G Street in time to catch the first band and balloons as they parade by. 


Fun at the Finish
Party after the race! Join us for the post-race party near Tuna Harbor Park. There will be live music, and lots of extra munchies including muffins, bagels, juice, fresh fruit and much more! You can also watch the remainder of the parade that features colorful floats, bands and huge inflatable characters.

It looks like a lot of fun, and I probably would have been all over it, but my husband and I will be in Mexico from December 22, 2009 until Jan 4, 2010. We need to do a race together!

You'll love this one. You get to run down the parade route just before the floats start, so there are throngs of spectators to cheer you on. Enjoy!

Sounds like a great race! Sadly I will be here trying not to freeze my polar-fleece encased behind off but I'll be running with you in spirit!

Morgan said...

That sounds like so much fun! Good luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by the other day and sharing your sons story! Hopefully you will be able to find a race near you to join the cause!

This is right over by the Shelter Island 5K I ran a few weeks back. Nice and flat and great scenery the whole way. Sounds like a good time.

Sounds like fun!!!! I wish I weren't in NY otherwise I would be there.

Just read your post about your running buddy-- and talking while running-- I HATE that too!!! I am just too nice to ever tell anybody. The people in my running group are a bunch of talking boxes-- asking all sorts of questions. I don't want to be rude but any advice on how I can tell them to Shut the **** up?
