The 23rd Annual Irvine to Laguna Beach Father's Day Half Marathon (13.1 miles) Run
The Father's Day
tradition goes on!
Doug Malewicki (64) , Michelle Barton (32) & Jim McElroy (70) just after finishing the 23rd annual Father's day Half Marathon (13.1 mile) run from Irvine to Laguna Beach.
Both Michelle and dad's legs were pretty dead after the previous day's awesome MUD RUN. Speedy Michelle was nice enough to take it easy & run along with dad.
Doug's time of 2:05:17 was
15 minutes slower than last year - a 9:34 mile per minute average
versus last year's 1:49:51 and a 8:23 minute per mile pace.
Doug & Jim say "Cripes - we have been doing this annually without a miss since 1980. How many more times do we have to do it?"

Michelle found this brand
new NEMO toy on the road at about the 6 mile point. Michelle, who
was taking daughter Sierra to see "Finding Nemo" that afternoon, carried
it the rest of the way for her.
Every time you pushed on the fin it made fish noises for 30 seconds or so. Fun - but it drove us nuts!
(Note Honda Insight hybrid car driving by on Laguna Canyon road!)
