Vegan Beerfest 2011 (via Vegangelical)

I thought about writing my own blog about our experience at the Vegan Beerfest 2011 but our friends over at Vegangelical beat us to it. Instead of me rehashing exactly what they said (in a much less entertaining way), I figure I would give them all the credit and give you a link to their blog. So, click here, click on the image below, read the post and subscribe to their blog!

Disneyland Half training starts next week

Here we go with post number 2.  I feel like 2 posts makes this an official blog now.

Next week will be the start of our official 10 week training for the 2011 Disneyland Half Marathon which is on September 4th.  According to the site that is 70 days away!!  If you want to check out the course map, click here to download the pdf.  It's a fun run that goes through California Adventure, Disneyland, through Anaheim, by the Honda Center through Angel Stadium and back to Downtown Disney.

And so it begins!

I feel like it was only a matter of time until we started a blog...

Carly and I have been married for almost 2 years now but we've been together for almost 9.  About 2 years into our relationship we started running together.  We started first at the track at UCSD Spanos Field and then moved on to the Campus Loop. Eventually we started doing 5k and 10k races.

Disneyland Half Marathon 2010
After college, we got a place together, got engaged, got married and then said, "Ok, time to work towards a marathon."  That process started in June 2010 when we started training for our first half marathon.  We both ran and completed the 2010 Disnelyland Half Marathon in September 2010 with a finishing time of about 2 hours 5 minutes.  About 2 months ago we ran in the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon.  Our goal was to best our original time and we did with a finish time of 1 hour 58 minutes (Carly beat me by about 5 seconds).
