In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.

The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.

They're out there somewhere. White sea bass. Captain Allyn Watson hunts the elusive fish aboard The Dreamer, a 46? vessel that cruises the Pacific at speeds of up to 15 knots. He knows the waters well; after all, it?s that expert knowledge that helped him placed first in Hubbs Sea World Research Foundation's white sea bass competition for seven consecutive years. He's not alone this time, however. Today, Captain Watson?s accompanied by a faithful crew and a group of passengers, each armed with a fishing pole and a hunger for seaward adventure. As they drop anchor in the middle of calm waters, lines fly from all sides of the boat. It?s a bad afternoon to be a sea bass.

Allyn Watson is just one of the independent captains who works out of Pierpoint Landing. There, their eight boats occupy spots at the docks, ready to carry groups on fishing adventures that can last anywhere from a few hours to weeks at a time. Aboard the 75? Toronado, Captain Ray Lagmay and up to 49 passengers take overnight trips to catch barracuda, rockfish, and other targets. Meanwhile, the Southern Cal and its leaders, Captain Ryan and Captain Mitch, snag similar fish during shorter, half-day trips.

The atmosphere at Pine Ave DG Boxing is fun, but the attitude is serious. Throughout the gym, fighters of all ages and experience levels pummel heavy bags and speed bags, work on footwork in the ring, and jump rope to condition their bodies into that of an elite athlete. At the center of it all is Anthony Skalberg, a retired boxer who decided to open up his own boxing gym and share his love for the sport with everyone.

At the gym, expert instructors train fighters for amateur and pro competition, but they also believe that boxing should be used for fitness, self-defense, and building self-esteem. During group classes organized by experience level, students work together to learn fundamentals such as punching, weaving, and trading mouth guards after each match. Instructors work to give each student individual attention, ensuring that they get personal time to work on mitt training. They also specialize in private boxing training at the gym and offer one-on-one mobile lessons at locations convenient for the student.

Tucked within the protected confines of its eponymous inlet, Alamitos Bay Sailing helps prospective sea dogs earn their legs. During in-depth lessons, students move from the basics of boat handling to the navigation and radio skills that allow them to make short trips on their own. Following these lessons, those whose thirst for sailing skills remains unsatiated can avail themselves of crew training on the school's 80-foot schooner Tiama, embarking on a three-day voyage that makes them eligible to crew on charters and tell nosy family members that they are married?to the sea. Those willing to join the Long Beach Sailing Club can also charter the fleet's newest acquisition, the 33-foot Tarten Ten Old School. The green-hulled vessel sports a diesel engine, five fresh bags of sails, and a cockpit to hold six sailors.

A member of the the National England golf team. Twenty-five years of coaching experience. Permanent resident status from the U.S. government for excellence in golf. Certified PGA instructor Paul Young has the credentials of an elite golf coach, but that doesn't mean he won't walk a first-timer through the act of putting. In fact, he's welcomes players of all skill levels, whether they're hoping to shave strokes off of their handicap or learn the basics of the game. His versatility stems from a personalized approach: he examines each client's quirks and form so that he can give advice on how to adjust their swing for better performance according to their body type and range of motion. His lessons also utilize video analysis to diagnose hitches in form or add to students' Tin Cup 2 audition reels.

Fishing, whale watching, scuba diving?there are lots of reasons to take to the ocean. Whatever your quest, the stalwart captains at South Bay Cruises have a vessel for the occasion. There's the Tern, a crabbing-ready 30-footer with a 25-knot top speed, and the Ahra-Ahn, a long-range explorer that can sleep 32. The Shoreliner is a converted luxury transport that can bear her passengers to Catalina in style, and the Liberty is perfect for harbor cruises, with a capacity for up to 110. On the other end of the spectrum is the sturdy little Meme, small enough for an intimate fishing trip and speedy enough to ding-dong ditch other boats.
