Surf City Half Marathon – A Personal Best

Yvonne Condes and Jae Wu at Surf City Marathon 2014

I have a new running friend and she is a great companion. She’s always positive and in a good mood most of the time. This works well because we run in the morning, which is not the time of day when I’m positive or in a good mood. It’s been nice to shake it up and run with someone else. But god forbid I let it end there. About a month ago I told her we were ready for a half marathon.

So on February 2, after about 6 weeks of training, we did the Surf City Half Marathon. It was fantastic in so many ways. The course was mostly flat, it was at the ocean so it was beautiful, the medal was a surfboard, and last but not least, it ended at a beer garden on Superbowl Sunday.

Really, though, the best part was that I had a personal best. My time was 2 hours and 14 minutes. Two minutes faster than my second best time. I was hoping for 2:10, but 2:14 is great. It makes me want to run more and try harder. There is still time to sign up for the LA Marathon…
