The first thing I had to do as I began to write my 2016 Year in Review, was to calculate how many races I ran in 2016. I opened up an Excel spreadsheet, looked through my Instagram feed, and began adding each race date, name, and distance. I was shocked when I concluded with this:
The California International Marathon (CIM) is most certainly “a marathon organized by runners, for runners,” as stated on the runSRA website. I’ve run a total of 12 marathons and this course / experience was one of my top favorites! From the expo to race day, everything was well organized, enjoyable, and made me want to run CIM every year!
