It’s not often that you get to run down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in South LA wearing nothing but short-shorts.  But May 25 is a special day!  I just registered for the LA Marathon.  There is no turning back now–they just got a bunch of my dollars and sent me a confirmation e-mail.

Below is the course map.  Obviously the course favors South LA, West Adams and Mid-city.  I wish that there was a way for it to reach up into Hollywood neighborhoods too, but no big deal.  I also wish that the final stretch was not Olympic Boulevard because Olympic is just about the ugliest street in town.  Nevertheless, one of the most fun things about the race is getting to see such a broad cross section of LA, and to find people from every culture and ethnicity standing on the street cheering and handing out orange wedges.  I can’t wait!
