Silver Strand, San Diego, CA: Sunday, November 16, 2014
A courtesy reminder for San Diego's 1/2 marathon skate event.
This is a fun event, and if you plan accordingly you can do some bonus skating along the strand after the event.

It's also fun to skate around the 4-5 mile loop on Fiesta Island or hit the board walk on Mission Bay trail for some pre-race skating.

Lot's of 'fun in da sun' to be had in Sand Diego!
Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Default Post-event report.

Another fun event in San Diego, CA! For those that missed it, weather was perfect as usual. This event, though nowadays a 10 mile skate, makes up for the shorter course in scenery and fun. And, we always do a bonus skate back up to the start to get in extra skating while there. Had an absolute blast catching up with old friends, meeting new friends, and skating 4 days in a row in sunny Southern California, including Fiesta Inland and Mission Bay. And, by chance encounter we met up with San Diego's famed skate ambassador Slomo! Yep, the man himself, cruising along Mission bay. No one can argue that our skating hearts were instantly captured in reading his NY times story, but meeting him is person was just an amazing experience. Wow, what an inspiration that guy is to skaters.

I posted some pics at the skateNOW facebook page, and others are posting across the internet.

Be sure to put this event on your bucket list, it's more than a race, it's a skating destination.

Silver Strand Race Results.

I couldn't make it this year, but hopefully next year.

Congrats to Rob Bell for the first place finish!

Cool to see that olympic long track team member Jilleanne Rookard was there -- based on results, it looks like she must have been in the lead pack right up to the pothole riddled final sprint.

Hoping we will see some race reports here, and maybe some photos from the pace car.

The pot hole finish is a thing of the past. Yes, Jilleanne (who hadn't really been on inline in quite some time) knocked it outta the park on this one. R(o)(o)(o)(o)ger took pics from all over the course of lead pack, and we saw many were filming the race, should be some good footage & pics emerging.
