At Dodger games this season, I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to have a fun LA Marathon video playing on the big screen in left field. Well, I need not wonder any more. Thanks to our friends in Chavez Ravine, we’re now represented at the Stadium. The course video is now playing live during games for all 50,000 spectators to see. Love the great energy when it comes on. Here are some photos from last Monday’s game against Pittsburgh. Bert Whitson, the runner in the video, is our new Marathon celebrity!
While on vacation in Marin County this summer, I had the good fortune to get a guided tour of the Dipsea Trail from my friend Steve Romjue. If you’re not familiar with this famous route, it’s the home of the Boston Marathon of trail runs, the Dipsea Race. Next year will mark the 100th running of that event, and I can tell you after running the trail, I’m going to do whatever I can to get one of the coveted 1,500 slots in the race.
