So, maybe I am dork, but I am totally excited to be doing a marathon on Catalina! To keep me motivated I am going to post fun facts about Catalina here on our blog.
Catalina Fun Fact #1
Santa Catalina Island is part of the Channel Islands of California archipelago. The other Channel Islands (there are are 8) are Anacapa and San Nicolas in Ventura County, San Miguel, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, and Santa Barbara in Santa Barbara County, and San Clemente is in Los Angeles County along with our favorite (and the only one with a significant permanent civilian settlement), Santa Catalina in Los Angeles County. So even though we are going 26 miles out to sea for our marathon we will be in the same county!
Here is an awesome map for your viewing pleasure!
