A Winter Workout

Many local runners recently gathered together at the start line for the 3rd Annual San Diego Holiday Half Marathon. For the first time, the race began on Peñasquitos Dr. in front of the Doubletree Golf Resort. Participants traveled southwest along Carmel Mountain Rd. and along the 56 bike path before finishing the marathon on the beautiful Torrey Pines State Beach. A portion of all proceeds from the race went to benefit the Joan Kroc Salvation Army, and Team Red, White & Blue, a nonprofit that aims to enrich the lives of U.S. veterans.
