Santa Monica Classic tomorrow

It's time to run one of the best 5K/10Ks in Southern California, the Santa Monica Classic.  If I sound biased, it's because I founded the event.  It's now part of the LA Marathon group of events, and today we'll all be down at packet pick-up with the Nike folks.  I conceived of this race as a premium event:  beautiful course, sweet Nike technical shirts, environmentally-themed Expo, great training program, etc.  The event has all of these things.  Importantly, the Classic also raises both money and awareness for Heal the Bay.  

Today's packet pick-up at Sport Chalet in West LA is an event unto itself.  Check it out:

The first 2,000 people who pick up their packet will receive a Sport Chalet gift card worth between $5 and $100 to pick up all your race day needs.  Card valid only May 2nd & 3rd at the West LA location.  Festivities will also include massages, iPod engraving, footwear trials and more.  See you there!

Anyway, I hope you can make this event.  It's going to be good!  Please look for us and say hi if you come by today.
