The Beach to Beacon is Tomorrow!

Tomorrow I'll be running in the Beach to Beacon 10K. There aren't too many races out there where you can "compete" with runners like Meb Keflezighi, Deena Kastor, and Ryan Hall, but this is one of them if you are lucky enough to get entry.


I wasn't planning in running this race again this year. I've done it the last two years (54:06, 54:26) Click on the links for the recaps from 2011 and 2012. Last year was so brutally hot and I know how much my running suffers in the heat, I didn't feel like I needed to do the race again.

2011 - in the pink and black on the right
2012 - with Stacy and Jill 


Then someone offered to transfer their bib to me, so I decided to run in one more time. I'm a glutton for punishment, I guess.

Good news is, I'm running this race with no expectations of setting a PR. The temperature is supposed to be cooler than last year, but it will still be in the 70s which is still too warm for me to run fast. But who knows what tomorrow will bring?

  1. Good luck! I am escaping the madness the race brings to the area and heading to NH for the weekend, but my BF will be out there directing traffic so you can run safely!

  2. Have fun! B2B is awesome. When did they start giving medals? Hope you have good weather. The year I ran the fog was so heavy you couldn't even see the headlight while standing in Fort Williams.

    1. I'm not sure they are giving them out this year, but last year was to celebrate the 15th year.
