I'm headed down to Santa Barbara with a couple coworkers for the first time since I graduated last June. On Sunday I'm "running" a little race called the Pier to Peak Half Marathon. I think you'll agree that those quotation marks are necessary after checking out the course elevation profile. It literally starts at the pier, climbs up a bloody mountain, and finishes at the peak. I'm treating it more as a glorified hike.
what was I thinking!?
