This weekend is the 100th running of Bay to Breakers. Bay to Breakers is a 12k race held annually in San Francisco. The name reflects the course which goes from downtown near The Embarcadero (the "bay" side of the city) to the west end of the city or the "breakers" of Ocean Beach. It’s a 7.5 mile race with athletes and of course costumed runners out for a good time.
Christoph and I are signed up! I still don’t know if we will be dressing up in costume for the run. Seeing that it is the 100th year, a friend of mine thought of the idea to go as Willard Scott, who is on the Today show celebrating people who reach their 100th birthday and someone turning 100. Have you seen this on the today show? Brought to you by Smuckers!
Today, I went on my lunch break to go pick up my race number and check out the expo. My review….Not worth spending time in the expo. All the vendors were pretty lame, except Virgin America which was taking pictures of runners on fun backdrops.Ok, in all serious, we are running a 12K and we haven’t been training….oh, yeah and Christoph has us singed up for one of the faster running groups. Geeze.
But judging by my past race runs, i'm sure we will have a great time! As long as we can beat people running with strollers and sleeping babies. They're fast sometimes!
