CIM Tracking

Here's the live tracking link for the 2013 California International Marathon. There will be splits at 5.9 miles, 13.1 miles, 20 miles, and the finish. That link also will take you to the race leaderboard.

I'll be wearing bib #55. Two of my friends and training partners are also running - Fritz (bib #41) and Nate (bib #69). We are aiming to work together for the first half and come through right around 1:10.

The weather looks like it will be cold (mid-twenties) but at the moment, it doesn't seem like we'll be dealing with any storms like they had last year.

My high school teammate Hector used to say "Run Fast, Big Trophy." He was right, its not all that complicated. So I wrote that on the bottom of my racing flats to remind myself to just believe in my training and RUN FAST on Sunday morning.


  1. Haha, that's my picture in the blog you linked. Last year was crazy.

    Good luck this weekend!!

    1. Hope you don't mind me linking to it! I googled "CIM rain 2012" :-)

  2. Good Luck! Can't wait to hear the recap. I love what you wrote on the bottom of your shoes That is such a great idea.

  3. I hadn't even read the blog, but read "Run Fast, Big Trophy" on the sneakers and smiled :). Good luck, you helped Hector win trophies so let his words help you here!!

  4. Good luck Jake! I think 1:10 will be perfect for you. You'll feel nice and controlled and with all the guys shooting for that Trials standard, you'll have a lot of guys to chase down and pass the last 10 miles, which will help you to continue to press forward.
