A final twelve names were added to the finsher's roster for the Santa Barbara Half-Marathon.
I was not among them.
I had fun and got a nice finisher's medal.
Plus a knock in my engine turned out to be a failing water pump. It held up on the two-hour ride home and didn't strand me in some desolate valley on a Saturday afternoon.
But I never officially ran the race.
I have already registered for the inaugeral City of Angels Half-Marathon. The mostly downhill course begins in Griffith Park and ends in downtown Los Angeles, passing the Silver Lake Reservoir and Echo Park lagoon.
Here's hoping for a good, officially recorded, finish time.
And no engine problems.
