Oakland Marathon: How are your New Years resolutions going? Getting that exercise?

Did you make a new year's resolution to get in shape? Be more disciplined about exercise? Sign up for a race? Run your first 5k or half marathon?

This year's Oakland running festival will be March 24-25. Now is probably a good time to start training (if you haven't already). The full and half marathon courses pass near PCL as runners go up Mandela Parkway from 7th to 32nd. If you do the full course, its a great tour of all of Oakland's neighborhoods. The half marathon stays in the really central neighborhoods and just hits downtown, Jack London Square, West Oakland, and Lake Merritt - a pretty fantastic tour of the best parts of the City.

And if you're not a runner, you don't have to go too far to at least see the event - have brunch at Brown Sugar Kitchen or find a spot here in West Oakland to enjoy watching 1000s of people run by (great option if your new year's resolution was to watch other people exercise, or to drink more in the mornings, or something else backward)!
