The cooler fall weather came at just the right time for Val as she lined up for her annual Long Beach Half Marathon. It was sunny and perfect running weather for both the runners and the spectators.
Last year, I was on skates and met Val at various spots along the course but this time, picked two choice spots to line up some “shots”.
This above video shows Val as she approaches the six mile marker. The first mile was extremely congested and that slowed her overall time somewhat which officially was 1:42:03.
