Come get a great workout and a coffee afterwards. This Run is designed to include a scenic view of downtown San Diego along with a great stairs workout around the convention center stairs and the pedestrian bridge over Harbor Drive near the Hilton Embarcadero.
The meeting place is in front of Starbucks on Fifth Avenue and Laurel. The course is downhill to start into downtown for about 1.5 miles then we hit the convention center for a break out session with the stairs. There will be a bail-out option for those who are still waking up and want to run 1 mile less. After the stairs at the convention center we head south towards the Hilton and across the pedestrian bridge for another set. The southern view which include the Coronado bridge is breathtaking if the stairs hasn't done that to you already.
Then we run north along Seaport Village pass the USS Midway to Broadway where we turn right into the heart of downtown. This is perfect timing to see the city turn on as we head up 6th Ave for the final hit of the SNOOZE button. Meet at 6:00am so... THE TRAIN CAN LEAVE AT 6:05am...to be respectful of those who have a not-so-cool boss.
