I just got back from picking up my race packet, and that's my number! Right up there! I gotta tell you, though, seeing the huge Santa Cruz Half Marathon banner as I walked into the store made my stomach do a flip-flop. Also drained my chirpy confidence of a few days ago. But 1230, that's gotta be a good one, right? Could be much worse! 1230 is nice, and solid-sounding. And also, it's a good time to eat lunch, right? And what's better than lunchtime? Am I right?
