The AFC (San Diego) Half Marathon in August sounds like a very
scenic run: from Cabrillo National Monument, along the Bay, into
town, and ending in Balboa Park.  Is it really that scenic?  What
about hills?

YES YES YES !!!

The AFC Half Marathon and the La Jolla Half Marathon tie for first on
my list of most scenic Half Marathons.  The only problem?  Don't count
on a PR; in fact, I use them both as training runs for flat, and thus
fast, Halfs.

Now that I think about it a bit more, the La Jolla Half probably edges
out the AFC Half by a tiny bit.  In any case, do the AFC for the stunning,
early morning views of the Pacific Ocean, the light house, downtown from
on high, the harbor from up close, and the wonderful, glorious sight of
the finish line when 'sprinting' across the Cabrillo Bridge into the
heart of Balboa Park.

Just my HO...
