Running the Carlsbad 5000

I typically don’t write about specific personal events in my life, but I feel like this one is something that I want to share with everyone. Many people don’t know, but my mom is actually a marathon runner. And of course, I’ve been inspired by her, to train for my first official running competition — the Carlsbad 5000.

In April, I’ll be heading down the coast from San Francisco to Carlsbad to run in this event, with my sister, who also is a runner (it runs in the family).

I’ll be tracking my progress on Twitter, Facebook and this blog, so if you want follow my training, go ahead and subscribe.

  1. It “RUNS” in the family? Haha. Ok, so that was an obvious joke you made, but since you didn’t point it out, I thought I would.

  2. Oh cool, my hometown! Well sort of – San Diego. It really is a fast course – I ran the half marathon there in high school and gained liked half an hour over my previous time.

    Treat yourself to a “California” burrito – carne asada with french fries – at any local Berto's afterwards.
