Tidbits: 40th SF Marathon

The 40th San Francisco Marathon took place today, Sunday, July 23.  I ran the first half of it, which included the stretch across the Golden Gate Bridge and ended in Golden Gate Park.  [The second half of the marathon then looped through the Park and ended up back at the Embarcadero start line.]  What a great experience to run across the bridge (even though it was foggy as pea soup)!  I was able to keep up with the 2:20 pace maker and made through the half marathon finish line at just under that time.  (I am on the left.) My next half marathon will be the re-match race with Professor Frank Wu (Hastings) and Carol Suzuki (New Mexico) at the San Jose Rock’n Roll Half Marathon
