California Dreaming!

Hola Bloggies:

So this here is a blog post I’m SUPER excited to share with you – but you’ll have to read on to find out why! Winking

Now I don’t know if you bloggies have had the opportunity to visit California (if you’re super luck you may even live there) but there are some very cool things to see.

P1010214

California has Disneyland and California Adventure . . .

P1010341

California has the Santa Monica Pier . . .

california orange

California has lovely oranges that fall just outside of property lines so Canadians like me can take them on their way home (true story) . . .

Karen and giant sequoia

California has absolutely massive Sequoia trees . . .

P1010114

California has the brilliant Walt Disney Concert Hall . . .

P1010269

California has the wonderful (and free!) Getty Villa . . .

LBC Marathon

But more importantly for today’s purposes . . . . . . . . .

California has the Long Beach Marathon!!!! And yours truly will be running the half!!! EEEEEK!!!!!!

You know who else will be there for the Marathon?

Danica (Chic Runner)

Aron (Runner’s Rambles)

Maritza (Marathon Maritza)

Tara (On the GO!)

Kristin (Keeping up with Kristin)

and Nicole (Runner Nic)!!!!

To say that I’m ridiculously excited is a massive under statement!!! I’m also, frankly, nervous at the same time! Happy

So there you have it bloggies – come October 17th, 2010, I’ll be racing it up in Long Beach! Woot woot! Bring it!

 

PS: Anybody else want to join us?

Amber,

Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete said...

Yay!! Good luck! I love California ( at least the more rural areas, and not the over glam fake areas)! You are going to rock it!

Awesome! I bet it will be a gorgeous place to run; I've only been to the near-LA area when I went to visit my aunt one summer a few years back.

If I could figure out how to get my butt from Tennessee to Cali for super cheap it would be a bloggie adventure!! That sounds like it's gonna be an awesome trip!!

So exciting! Hmm, do they have a half...? You're gonna rock this race!

CarolynM said...

OMG! You're going to do it!!! Awesome.

If I were out West I totally would consider it...but I should probably not skip any more 1L than I have to (lol - like in November?).

Maybe I'll think about the Toronto Waterfront half...it's around the same time...hmmm. :))
