Beach to Bay 2011

Dear Readers (Becca and Nancy),
Just wanted to let you know that if you EVER decide to run Beach to Bay, have patience because the traffic was horrible and our plan, while well thought out, was faulty. Be prepared to do whatever is necessary to get to where you need to go even if that means you show up FIVE THOUSAND HOURS before your scheduled run time. Also, be willing to catch a ride with complete strangers (even if they look like the guy/girl you saw on America's Most Wanted the night before). Otherwise, you'll NEVER get to where you want to go. The race was tons of fun. We didn't place, OBVIOUSLY. I don't even think that we got our time registered because the course closes at 1:00 p.m. and we came in a bit after that. Sad to say that our "best efforts" weren't quite best enough. There's always next year. Our plan for next year is to try a married couples team. All we need to do is get Zarder and Pacheco to get hitched and it'll be a TRUE married couples team. hahaha
My next race is Farias 5K. That should go WAY easier!!!


  1. Sounds like fun aside from the hitchhiking. ;)

  2. It was a lot of fun! Wanna run with me June 11? Morgan's Wonderland Race for Inclusion.

  3. That's the same weekend as the Farias 5K, I think. I'd really love to do the Wonderland race, but let me double check.

  4. Yup, they're on the same day. I'm torn. One race raises money for scholarships, but the other raises money for a WONDERFUL park for needy kids. Sorry, but needy kids win out. ESPECIALLY since there is no other kind of park like it in the United States! I wonder if we can recruit more people to run?
