Half Marathons, Total Goodness November 20, 2009

LAist has a post up about two new half marathons that were announced for Los Angeles.

The first-ever 13.1 Los Angeles is scheduled for January 10th and runs from Santa Monica to Venice then east to Culver City and back. Or, if you’re more of the visual type: from yoga moms to pot heads to fancy people in business suits.

The Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon starts at Griffith Park and continues along the LA River, through Sunset Blvd., past Echo Park Lake and ends in Downtown LA. The real draw, though, is that they’ll have live bands at every mile playing music to keep the runners amped up. Sounds like fun! I hear that Lou Bega might be singing his classic “Mambo No. 5,” which would mark the first time people are actually running toward him. This race is in October.

Anyone interested in running these races?

And for your convenience:

These sound so awesome!!

And what are you talking about? I think all of us (who grew up in the 90’s mostly) are guilty of liking Lou Bega… at least the first time we heard that song. It’s catchy.
