La Jolla Half Marathon: spectators!
There were many things I loved about watching this race. Cheering on friends was definitely #1. But what I wasn't expecting were all the cheers and comments we received! Runners are such a friendly, happy group and those running La Jolla were no exception. High fives, nods of appreciation, nice comments, hoots, laughs, smiles and lots of people telling us how many toenails they've lost. It was really fun to be out there supporting these runners!
I taped the course map on the back of our sign, noting approximate times of my friends along the course. Also on the back was this BINGO card I printed from the Competitor.com website. My daughter enjoyed waving her pom poms but it also helped to have her look for these runner's descriptions on the Bingo card. http://running.competitor.com/2011/10/out-there/out-there-marathon-bingo_40298
