2017 Encinitas Half Marathon - Race Report
"I kept running into friends and ended up hanging around way longer than I usually do after a race."
The Encinitas Half Marathon 2018
"I will likely run this race every single year. It is seriously one of my favorites. Packet pick-up is a breeze. It’s at moonlight beach and takes a whopping 4 minutes, in and out. Parking is easy on race day."
