"Quiet, adorable street by the marina - great for running!"
So I recently ran a marathon, and I did much of my training by running the boardwalk from Santa Monica to Marina Del Rey. However, instead of stopping at the end of the boardwalk, I would continue a few extra miles down Speedway just so I could run Via Dolce. This street looks right out on the water, and you can often see kayakers and boaters enjoying the day. The street itself is populated with both adorable and stately townhouses, some of which are to die for. For running, the street provides you with a 3 mile ish loop that can really round out a run. And this street is quiet, quiet, quiet! A total haven from the insanity of the boardwalk.
