Surfer's Point Half Marathon 2014

Surfer’s Point Half Marathon 2014 Race Report

After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014.

Just Ran the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon

After 5 weeks of intense training, I ran in the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon race in Oxnard, California. When I found out that some friends were going to run the race I was very interested. I initially signed up for the 5K run but then chose to go for the half marathon.

The “D” Word #GetFit

Since my diabetes diagnosis three months ago I have lost 28 pounds. I feel great.

A few months ago I drove up to Sacramento and felt crappy during the long drive there and back. When I got back home I set up an appointment with my doctor and took a blood test. My glucose levels were high and I was called in to take an expanded set of tests after fasting.

Once again, my glucose level was high. I have diabetes.

My First Steps in Technology

Technology was first baked into my brain after I graduated from Pasadena High School. I managed to graduate from high school in 1986 after only having used a word-processing enabled computer a handful of times. I borrowed a couple of computers from friends to write papers and used another friends’s to play games.

This topic popped into my head because I’ll be attending the Tecnificate conference in Santa Barbara today and for many in the Santa Barbara area this may be their first inroad into technology.
