Started out my Sunday morning with a gorgeous drive out to Pomona…in my groove and happy to be heading to the race! You can’t hear anything in the video but check out those beautiful mountains in the background! 👀🤙🏼
Once I got there I met up with my fellow Ambassadors for some pre-race pics! My fav was this one of race announcer Rudy Novotny photobombing us! 😬
We started the race off with another snow start!!
It was magical and so fun to go through!
Here are some of the rolling hills along the start of the course.
More gorgeous views of the mountains in the background! 😍
Here is my pro tip for you when going through the water station…
Found some dirt to run on! I’m not allowed to run on the pavement yet (ACL reconstruction was done on my left knee in August).
We ran right past Raging Waters!
We went through a park which provided lots of opportunities for me to run on the grass and dirt. 👍🏽
I loved the course – very peaceful with plenty of rolling hills to keep you engaged!
…and back to the raceway at mile 12 before heading to the finish line at 13.1!
I received my Holiday Half Marathon Medal AND the coveted GOLDEN SNOWFLAKE CHALLENGE MEDAL!! ❄️
It’s HUGE and it’s BEAUTIFUL!!!
Here’s a pic of all 3 medals together.🏅🏅🏅
Post race beverage! ❄️🏅🏅🏅❄️
I had a blast at the Holiday Half and will definitely be coming back next year!
