I am sad to announce that I have had to withdraw from Oceanside this year. I stepped funny on a run last week and aggravated my sciatic nerve. It is getting better but not in time for the race. Really sucks, but sometimes you have to listen to the body. Best of luck to everyone racing this weekend! #nolimits [email protected]
