Two brief reminders before this weekend's RSOB ...
1) If for some reason you missed it, be sure to sign up for a chance to win a pair of Merrell Barefoot Women's Pace Glove trail shoes; the winner will be announced here next Sunday.
2) You've got one more day to purchase my Running Life book at the 20% discounted price from our website, in conjunction with our promotion at the Big Sur Marathon race expo. The discount is good through close of business on Sunday, May 1.
Speaking of the Big Sur Marathon, that's the subject of our Random Shot of Beauty:
View of the beautiful, rugged Pacific coastline from Highway 1 in the Carmel Highlands, an equally beautiful and rugged stretch of road that this year's marathoners get to traverse twice. Lucky them.
As for me, I won't be in the marathon this year - I'll be doing this again instead. Honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way.
