The 2016 Half Moon Bay Marathon – Sun, Smiles, and a Surprise Victory

I was all smiles on Sunday morning as I snuck out of the house and drove towards the beach…after a two year hiatus, the Half Moon Bay International Marathon was back for 2016! When this race debuted in 2011 , it magically captured so much of what I love about this coastal town…sandy trails along the beach, cute little neighborhoods full of friendly locals, the majestic Ritz-Carlton hotel jutting out over the bluff at sunrise, and of course, lots of local beer and fresh seafood at the finish. A perfect way to spend a sunny California afternoon! (Let’s get ready to roll!) About 800 runners were here for the Full and Half Marathon, and Race Directors Franz and Jen Dill sent the marathoners up the coastline just as the sun lit the trail. I paced along with Magdalena Boulet (just running again after her 5th place at UTMB), Nakia Baird (looking faster every year), Kristine Groteguth (Cal State Monterey 400m/800m runner), Kenley Gaffke (29th marathon!), and a half dozen others as we tackled the trails and alternating small hills of the first section
