In 2012, Angela Bennett of Coto de Caza, planned on walking the OC Half Marathon with friends due to having suffered from chronic Lyme disease for the prior 12 years, and was surprised when she ended up running instead. From that moment on, her love and passion for running races began. She decided to complete the Beach Cities Challenge, but before the Surf City Marathon, Angela was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. 9 months after removing her thyroid, Angela cannot wait to beat her original time at the OC Marathon.
You’ll find Angela participating this Sunday, May 4th 2014 at the 10th Annual US Bank OC Marathon starting in Newport Beach, CA and ending in Costa Mesa. With over 22,000 runners participating in the marathon, half marathon, Wahoo’s OC 5K, and Kids Run the OC, this is sure to be a record-breaking year for the US Bank OC Marathon.
