I’ve run the LA Marathon several times and think it’s the most under-rated marathon in the United States. Why isn’t it grouped in with the other big city marathons like New York, Chicago or Boston?? We can talk about that another time.
Today I have a bunch of links and tips if you’re running the race. Check out my race recaps, last minute race tips, advice I got from a pro Olympic marathon coach and amazing food around the LA Marathon!
I’m doing a LIVE podcast interview with Amanda from Run to the Finish about her new book –

And if you’re in the area I hope you’ll join Amanda Brooks and I for an easy shake out run and to talk about her new running book – Run to the Finish.
About the book:
Run To The Finish: The Everyday Runner’s Guide to Avoiding Injury, Ignoring the Clock, and Loving the Run – is more than a training guide, it’s a reminder that we don’t always have to chase the fastest times to be a great runner. It’s a laugh out loud look at our running, followed by tips that will help you continue running for many years to come.

This will be a very easy shake out run starting at 9AM from the store. We’ll head across the street to run along the water, where I will probably need to get a photo because it’s just so dang pretty.
ALL PACES are welcome and if you’re running the marathon, this is genuinely an easy shake out run.
After that, we’ll hang out at the store for this LIVE talk with Monica to help you pick up some great last minute tips for race day and spend some time refueling and recovering. CANNOT wait to meet you and enjoy the day!
**SKIP THE RUN. If you’re just not up for it, then join us at 9:30AM for the talk, the treats and the community.
Hope you’ll join us!
