Okay, I know it’s not Christmas anymore, but I wanted to tell you about the 36th Annual Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run 10k we did on Dec. 7th. It was kind of a last minute decision, but a Christmas run ended up being a fun way to get into the holiday spirit.…

Race Review: Fustercluck 5K

FustercluckLove dressing up in crazy hillbilly costumes, drinking beer and screaming ‘MERICA at any given moment? Then look no further than Fustercluck to fulfill all of those dreams (with a little bit of running).

Erin and I ventured out to Temecula for the inaugural event, which was described as a “5K obstacle run.” It was beautiful day for a fun run –  even though we had run the Half Moon Bay International Marathon the week before, we were up for a good time and a short run.…
