stricklandGoing near and far to race some of the most picturesque coastline in the U.S., CRR Rachel Strickland has been on the move this fall. Having participated earlier this fall with running buddies CRR Michelle Parent and CRR Kathy Corbitt in a half-marathon on Cape Cod, Strickland went left-coast recently, finishing the Big Sur Half Marathon along California’s Monterey Bay in 2 hours and 23 minutes. This eclipsed her Cape Cod half by five minutes, with which she was very happy.

In her own words, “[I] probably could have shaved 3-4 more minutes off if I didn’t stop to take so many photos along the stunningly gorgeous course!” Hey, at least she’s taking time to smell the flowers along the way.
