Half Marathon 24 – Rock ‘n Roll San Francisco

1 Comment

I still don’t know if I really liked this race. It felt a lot like “done it”, “know the course”, “not excited”. If you have never run in San Francisco, this is a great race. But since my move to the Bay Area, I have run a few races in the city. This race felt like a repeat of the races and training runs I have completed over the past 10 months. So, forgive me, if I don’t sound too excited. I do say it is a beautiful run. A little scary, especially crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. 2 lanes are reserved for the runners, but you have cars driving by on your side only separated by traffic cones. At times that was a little off-putting.

I did have fun though. We had another crew of Team in Training buddies out there and it is always fun running with friends!

This is a picture I took leading up to the Golden Gate Bridge:

OK, maybe it’s a little dark. I had  a weird filter on my smartphone camera by mistake…

Yes, and I did stop on the bridge to take a selfie (who didn’t?). As a responsible runner I also tried to stay out of everyone’s way while I took my selfie. Seriously! 🙂

One thought on “Half Marathon 24 – Rock ‘n Roll San Francisco

  1. It can get boring when you run races on the same course, or mostly the same course. I have that problem in Hampton, NH. I’ve run about 8 races out of the same location with about 75% the same roads.
    Last year I ran across the Golden Gate bridge on the sidewalk, and the traffic was fierce. They fly across that bridge! Was the porta potty still on the bridge, about half way? Heading out of SF it was on the right side of the bridge. Strangest thing I’ve ever seen. I had to stop and take a picture of it!
