We met at hospitality point and the weather was overcast, but a bit humid.
This was a tough, hilly course that went through Mission Beach, Ocean Beach, Point Loma, Downtown San Diego, Hillcrest, Golden Hill, Old Town San Diego and back to Mission Bay. The hills were NO JOKE!
I stayed with my friend Stacey the whole time and we chatted, stopped at the water stations to fuel and then proceeded to get lost. We were supposed to make a right at Fort Stockton and somehow we ended up down Washington St (near the San Diego airport) at a dead end! Ooops. That’s what we get for not keeping a map with us. Yes, maps were handed out and we didn’t take one. Genius. Thank goodness for cell phones. She called an aide station for directions back and we were back on course. At this point I also stopped my watch and forgot to turn in back on for a mile and a half. My brain was clearly not functioning this morning.
Soooo 20.1 turned into 21 miles for us two knuckleheads!! Done in 3:05, not too shabby!
When we got back it was clear, sunny and getting warm. So glad we started at the butt crack of dawn!! Time to ice, eat and get ready to head to north county for Easter festivities.
P/S So far so good with the foot! My legs are tired as this was my longest run since February. Other than that, mama is on point!
