Run, Long Beach!

img_3850

It’s that time of the year, when the Long Beach Marathon is taking place! An estimated 25,000 participants are expected for this year’s event. And, why wouldn’t they want to compete in this race? It’s one of the most scenic and one of the flattest courses in California. Runners will get to enjoy views of the picturesque lighthouse, the historic Queen Mary, down the beautiful oceanside beach path, through the student-filled CSULB campus, back up Ocean Blvd, and more. Now remember, streets will be closed beginning at midnight tonight, so plan your parking and driving schedule accordingly.

If you’re not a runner, you can still check out the Health & Fitness Expo toady at the Convention Center. Or even better, get out on the route and cheer on the participants! I’ve done that in the past, and the runners seem to really appreciate it. Their smiles alone will make it worth getting up early on a Sunday morning…
