Today, I managed to do something I never dreamed I’d do…
I took part in the 100th running of the Bay To Breakers in San Francisco, and I finished!
For those of you not familiar with this race, it’s basically the Bay Area’s quirky take on a distance run. In years past, it was more a party/parade than a race, although this year, the “party” aspect was somewhat subdued, as alcohol and floats (and peeing in public) were banned. However, public nudity was still permitted, and visible in all its glory (?!?). Basically, those who were nude should not have been, but isn’t that always the case?
Still, it was an absolute blast – costumes ranging from a whole team dressed as crayons to a flock of Elvises, and many others. I only have a few pics, as I was more focused on simply making it to the finish line, but the others on my team (Laurie, April, and Cat) may contribute some more to add to my new photo gallery tab.
At any rate, I had a great time, and got in a week’s worth of exercise in one day (at least for me), although I still intend to work out the rest of this week (well, except for maybe tomorrow; I ache!).
And I’m looking forward to trimming my time for next year!
