We are excited, stoked and honored to welcome Pro Mountain Runner, recent winner of the Badwater 135 Ultramarathon, wife, mom of two, coach, writer and speaker - Sally McRae to the Suite Run Podcast! Sally's handle on social media is @yellowrunner and she is indeed a ray of light in this world. We could not stop talking, laughing and getting serious with Sally in this 90 minute conversation. She is smart, her laugh is contagious and her heart is huge - we know you are going to LOVE this conversation. Sally also shares the best places to RUN, dine out, great races, places of interest and so much more in the beautiful coastal city of Huntington Beach, CA.

Enjoy our conversation!

Sally's recommendations for Huntington Beach, CA:

1. Beach/bike path along PCH from Warner Ave. to Newport Beach (about 9.5 miles). Pro tip: run early to avoid beach crowds and coastal winds.
2. Bolsa Chica Wetlands (beautiful place to run on dirt)

1. Blue Bowl (for great Acai bowls!)
2. Phil's Coffee
3. Ola Restaurant (the best chips and salsa and incredible tacos including the salmon, brie and pomegranate tacos). This is one of Sally's favorite restaurants!
4. Sidecar Donuts
5. "Pop Bar" for 50 types of handcrafted gelato on a stick!

1. The Pasea Hotel and Spa (walk to beach!)
2. The Hyatt
3. Air BnB

Running Stores
1. A Snail's Pace (on Warner Ave.)

1. The OC Half Marathon (in May)

1. Central Park Huntington Beach (visit the Central Library, great for running, horses, trails and a small lake. Be sure and go to Kathy May's for cinnamon rolls and coffee)
2. Mt. Baldy (10,066 ft. mountain peak in the San Gabriel Mountains about an hour away). Don't miss this epic hiking or trail running adventure!

Sally's favorite season in Huntington Beach is Fall!
