THE SAN DIEGO ROCK ‘N’ ROLL MARATHON EXPERIENCE: ROAD TRIPPIN’
Really lousy wifi at my hotel, so only a quick post before tomorrow’s San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.
Drove down yesterday with my lady Lindy and had to brave mucho traffic on the route from LA to SD.
We arrived at 5:30pm and I had the dilemma of deciding whether to hit the expo before it closed at 7pm or waiting until today. Well, runner’s OCD won out so we hightailed it down to the San Diego Convention Center and a quick walkabout at the expo.
It was a little surreal at the convention center as I’m used to being there for San Diego Comic Con (in 7 weeks, btw) where it’s jam packed wall-to-wall with fanboys and fangirls. Well, yesterday you could actually move freely and there wasn’t a stormtrooper in sight.
Had a good time grabbing up my bib/tech t-shirt and a whole bunch o’ running swag.
Then it was off to Joe’s Crab Shack for dinner on the water.
Today it’s an opportunity to sightsee around SD (planning on touring the USS Midway) and then a carbo-load dinner with the SA2LV/Half Fanatics crew.
And tomorrow I think I’ll go for a run.
Post mortem when I get back to LA tomorrow night.
Have a great day everyone and… Run on!
