We are heading towards the last 4 weeks of the inaugural Om Run season and all of you are looking fabulous and committed to give your best towards your target races.
All of you are running increasing mileages over the course of the week specifically on your long endurance runs. I am hoping you are sticking to the training regimen and not overdoing or under-doing anything. As far as you listen to your mentors and follow the routines consistently you will do fabulously well on your target event.
Those of you who are targeting the 5k/10K on March 21st Good luck to you!! Have a good run and most importantly enjoy the race and other festivities being put together by the organizing team. They are really working hard to put a fabulous event for you all and I am sure you will enjoy it every bit and cherish the experience for a long time.
For those of you who are targeting the Half marathon here are some important notes:
The Half marathon race will be the Artichoke Half marathon at Pescadero, CA. It is 14miles South of Half moon bay on Hwy 1. Towards the end of march we will start reaching out to folks to determine if we can do a group transportation to the place. Depending on the interest expressed by the runners it can become reality. More on that later.
First and foremost your race is only as good as your ability to make it to the starting line!!:-)
For that you need to register for the race.
All of you have to register individually for this event. There will be no group registration. We (Mentors) will guide you through the process and address any questions you may have but you have to do the registration yourself.
Here are the instructions to register for the Artichoke Half Marathon. It is very straightforward and takes around 5-10 mins. I have already registered myself.
You can register online until 04/10/10 12:00 PM CST and the registration fee is $25.00. After that you will have to register onsite on race-day and the fee will be $30.00

Some Notes on the race
This race is a no-frills small race (there will be no expos and people marketing merchandise etc) but a very fun and scenic race. Everyone will get a tee-shirt & large artichoke.
Race numbers or bibs will not be mailed; you will pick them up on race day. So you need to be early there.
