LA Will Finally Have an Awesome Marathon

lam_logo_222.jpgLA’s marathon was ugly and hilly and elite runners were boycotting it. Then the religious community tried to drown it by brow beating it into a Monday in May. We heard the death rattle.

Then the City Council decided to move it back to Sunday (like how every other city with a marathon does it, save Boston). And now the LAT reports all the cities involved have approved the Stadium to the Sea route starting from Dodgers stadium to the ocean. Scenic and downhill! People could actually travel to Los Angeles to run our marathon.

We’re getting a little misty eyed.
