Run Happy!

The
is 
scheduled 
for 
the weekend
of
April 26-27


Although
this
1/2 
and
full marathon
is
fairly new
it
has become
wildly
popular

you 
run
through
Downton..
whoops...
downtown SLO

around
through
the rolling hills
of 
Edna Valley

back
and around

and 
finish
at
 the
iconic
Madonna Inn

last year
 at
Petit Soleil
we
gifted
our
guest runners
with
little 
goodie bags
of
fruit
water
and
homemade granola bars...

this year
the
granola
bars
will be
even more
    energizing
        and 
          even more
                      delicious



these
bad boys 
are 
chalk full
of 
nuts and seeds
dried fruit
oats
chocolate
peanut butter
and honey
