I know that this is a very late entry, but I think that it is worth posting.
A couple of weeks ago, Skip and Wendy from OCTR organized a birthday run for me. The posting on the OCTR message board read...
E-Rod's Birthday Rumba at Crystal Cove
Running on the beach in Crystal Cove in celebration of E-Rod's 29th birthday. A Birthday drink (Adult beverage or fruit juice) on the beach @ the Beachcomber afterwards. We run a total of 6 miles on the beach to El Moro tunnel and then return back.
29th, hah! Now that's a good one. But I'll take it. The run and post-training drinks were attended by about a dozen runner friends–Wendy, Skip, Tracie, Jessica, Kayla, Julian, Mala, Sue, Ryan, Eric KP, and Jenn G. It was a great late afternoon run on the beach. The Patron shots and Coronas that followed weren't bad either. Thanks, guys!
