I've signed up for the Surf City Half Marathon with my friend for 2011. I made a deal with her where if she was willing to sign up and walk/jog the race, then I would go with her the entire way whilst wearing a Rilakkuma suit. I wanted her to do it since training for the half and full marathons this year has been really good for me physically and emotionally. Other people I've mentioned this to said it's a cute idea, some said they might sign up just to see me do the race in the suit. Since I'm sort of cosplaying and walking, I was wondering if anyone else might be interested in joining us. You don't have to cosplay (hell, it might rain XD so you might not want to go elaborate) but if you want a reason to do some cardio training to lead up to this, here's a good goal!
A half marathon is 13.1 miles. If you can train yourself to go 8 miles you can finish 13.1! There will be aid stations throughout the course with water and sports drinks. It's in Huntington Beach on Super Bowl Sunday. I will be unofficially leading the "Relax" pace group and plan on finishing around 3:30-4 hours, meaning a 16-18 minute per mile pace, a brisk walk. The course time limit is six hours so we'll have plenty of time to finish. Anyone who wants to join can sign up to do the Surf City Half Marathon and then just... look for the girl with the Rilakkuma suit on race day
I made a facebook page
