So it's official - I'm heading up to San Francisco/San Jose on the weekend preceding my birthday to do my annual 'crazy' birthday stunt to ring in the new year. Certainly a lot sexier than last year's 60-mile romp on my bike in 90-degree temps.
Sat, 4/25 - 4th Annual Pat's Run in San Jose
Pat Tillman's friends and family created Pat's Run as a way to celebrate Pat's legacy while raising awareness and funds for the Pat Tillman Foundation. Pat’s Run is a 4.2 mile Run/Walk that unites all ages to celebrate the man who inspires so many to engage in active leadership, community service and personal goal attainment.
Sun, 4/26 - PCTR's Skyline to the Sea 50km
The popular Skyline to the Sea Trail runs from the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountains at Saratoga Gap through Big Basin Redwoods State Park, the oldest park in California (est. 1902), and ends at the Pacific Ocean at Waddell Beach. It travels through tall redwoods and high chaparral along the way.
To my No Cal friends...if you're free on Saturday on want to run a race to pay tribute to a true American hero, come out and join me to run 4.2 miles! Since I have the ultra the following day, I will be running it easy (along with my cousin who might join me) while taking pictures along the way and just enjoying the day. It's a mere $35 dollars (thru 4/20) and like I said, it goes to a great cause.
Very excited to be heading back to the Bay Area...hope to see some of you soon!
