This was by far the most fun I have had at a race in a long time. The weather was absolutely perfect for running and it showed with my time. This race had all of the same things that you come to expect from a Rock n Roll Race. But the thing that makes this one so much fun, is the way the entire community embraces the race. The highlight of the race for me is running through Normal Heights. Everyone is on front of ther houses cheering the runners on. Lots of people have treats and there is even a bar to get some additional fuel.
The course does off some nice challenging hills, and finises with a nice downhill into downtown San Diego. There are several options to get to the start of the course. This year we were smart and used Bird scooters to zip over to the start at Balboa Park.
The one negative this year was a delivery mishap that the caused event shirts not to be available at the Expo. This meant having to wait in a long line after the race to get it.
I am already looking forward to my return trip next year.
