Pier to Pier Quest – surfers marathon, 20 miles on the beach – running, climbing, and swimming

Finally, a marathon for me.

Called the Pier to Pier Quest, it is a run/swim along the coast from one pier in the south to another in the north, approximately 20 miles 앱굴림 다운로드. You run on the sand, swim around coves, climb rocks, traverse the harbor, and finish with an ice cream on the pier.

The starting point is the San Clemente Pier and you run through Dana Point and Laguna Beach, and then end at Balboa Pier in Newport Beach 자바스크립트 csv 다운로드. The whole trip takes 8-9 hours.

Only a handful of people do it every year, even though it is has been done for the last 21 years. Most of the participants are lifeguards…guess that means I’m gonna have to train for this 다운로드.

Every year the O.C. Register profiles the event:

Do what unsuccessful people don’t like to do

The key to success is sometimes just the willingness to put one foot in front of the other one more time 티칭 필링 다운로드.

I have ten marathons under my belt, including four New York races and one Boston.  When you are running a grueling race with thousands of people, for the most part it doesn’t matter where in the pack you finish.  What matters is simply that you finish.  It’s all about persistence ch340 드라이버 다운로드.

The difference between those who finish and those who give up lies in the old axiom that successful people do those things that unsuccessful people don’t like to do.  Successful people have the determination, the will, the focus, the drive to complete the tough jobs – like running a marathon 다운로드.

Keeping your eye on the prize is usually easier said than done.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the demands of a long-term project.

  • Focus on what you can accomplish rather than the obstacles that stand in front of you.  Direct your energy toward achieving a goal, and tackle the problems with an emphasis on edging closer to a successful result 도라에몽 극장판 달 탐사기 다운로드.
  • When you identify a roadblock, develop a realistic plan to overcome it.
  • To paraphrase Winston Churchill: Never, never, never, never, never, never, never give up 다운로드.
