About Me

  • Running club(s):
  • Rave race:

    Mountains 2 Sea

  • Race that's calling my name:

    Big Cottonwood, UT 2019, LA Marathon 2019, Ventura Marathon 2018…

  • I run because:

    It empowers and grounds me to know I have the strength and stamina to push myself.  People always ask me how do we do marathons.  My answer is; just keep putting one foot in front of the other and don’t give up.  (and train a lot!)

Not much to say created my own local course for 10K distance – missing real races very much!!!!

2021 should be a very busy race schedule to make up for the lost year since LA Marathon (which we just made by a week) before they did the major shutdowns of real events.

We lucked out with perfect weather – since then it’s been rainy and not so nice. The start was not as organized as they are doing construction at Dodger Stadium so getting into the corrals was not quite as easy this year. Once the race started it felt like the same course as the last couple of years. Crowd and volunteer support were awesome. Hoping that other races this year will follow suit and go on as planned with no delays or cancellations….

When you read in reviews train for the hills, take it seriously. This course does a double out and back so you get to doeach of the hills at lease twice and just for fun both directions. I’ll do it again next year but you can bet there will be more hill training. Overall very organized, great crowd support, excellent swag, and a good group of runners and volunteers.

Revel Races are so well organized and from the moment you get to the expo you feel part of the Revel running Community. Coach Paul’s talk about the course and advice was so great and made me feel like I knew what was coming throughout the course when I was running the next day. I would highly recommend this race but prepare for a cold morning before the start.

This is a good scenic course with up and down hills – not a downhill course in my opinion plenty of rolling hills along the way. I have done this 3 years now and will do it again next year.

This was a great race that I would do again but I would prepare with much more hill training. Running across (and back) over the Golden Gate Bridge is epic but we ran on the sidewalk path which is very narrow and wet from the fog. Amazing tour of the city and great people in it and running it.

Surprise spring stormy weather with off and on rain throughout the race. The course is a beautiful run through Ojai to Ventura. Hilly start with a nice gentle downhill section from about mile 9 to 18. Then rolling hills and a long grind from 22 to 24 then flat for the finish. The weather was not too conducive to stay and hang out after for too long so headed home pretty quickly. I’ll do this race again and again and again. Prefer this route to the similar but different Ventura Marathon in the fall.

I would recommend this race – rolling hills to start – good descent in the middle leading to rolling hills and a flat finish. I will do it again next year!

Train for the altitude (starts at 9,700 feet) and prepare for the “out and back” at mile 18. After thinking you are about to crush your PR you get to the “Out and Back” at mile 18 a long slow climb which in some crazy way seems like a long slow climb on your way back. Anything gained in time is quickly negated. But don’t let this dissuade you, train for it and know it’s coming. I would highly recommend this race!

The course is in a beautiful area of California with great weather and a nice rolling up and down course. Limited stations for energy food so bring some of your own. Small expo and small party area at the finish. This is a true runners race.

A true running tour of LA – from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica. Some hills in the first 5 miles and then rolling hills from that point on. A classic that can’t be missed in my opinion. I live in the area weather this time of year can vary greatly from heat wave to hard rain – be prepared for whatever the weather is that year.

This course is similar but different than the Mountains to the Beach Marathon. This one started with a double loop around Ojia that took up the 1st 7+-miles. A lot of up and down before you head for a long steady downhill (with some rolling hills. Before heading into town for the finish. Really cold at the staging area for the start come prepared!!! Fun race will do again and again! Train for hills this race is not easy but worth every mile!

The race went off without a hitch – Lucked into great weather after a rather wet SoCal winter. Same course as last year. Not my best finish but I had a great time and met great people. Thanks to the support staff, organizers and volunteers. I will be in it again next year!
