Virtually all health professionals extol the benefits of walking. Our niche is for women interested in improving their level of fitness. We promote fun and yes, we get dirty. Really dirty sometimes because we train on hills and trails. If you are looking for fun and good company combined with a training program that focuses on becoming a stronger and faster walker, then this is the one. ALL levels welcome! Now go get dirty!
SAN DIEGO HALF MARATHON AT PETCO PARK
Four of us did the Inaugural San Diego Half Marathon at Petco Park on March 11. We all had a fantastic day. Two of our Dirty Girls lost their “virginity” on that race (their first half marathon), and the rest of us really enjoyed the course as well.
Post race we had some health food (hot dogs, pizza, cheeseburgers) and rehydrated (diet coke, chocolate milk, beer) and rested our weary buns on sun warmed seats at Petco Park. Then I headed home for a well deserved soaking in a hot tub full of epsom salts.
For walkers we are one strong and fast gaggle of gals. Our hill training has paid off. We Dirty Girls had an especially easy time going up the Washington Avenue/University Avenue Hill on the route just before 15 Km. Our paces at 15Km had hardly slowed down from the earlier, flatter part of the course. Now THAT felt really good. :-) We all had a strong finish. We all did our best times on the last leg between 15Km (9.32 miles) and the finish line at 13.1 miles.
Some of us have currently set goals for the AFC, America's Finest City Half Marathon in August. Join us for a fantastic journey toward your strongest, fastest time ever.
CARLSBAD HALF MARATHON IN JANUARY 2013
This popular half marathon is one of the most scenic and enjoyable in the US, if not the world. Because of the course and the relaxed constraints for a fast finish time, it is perfect for the half marathon "virgin". Come join the Dirty Girl team to train with us. [Registration for this event has sold out].
