B2B I did it!!

Monday, May 17, 2010

Today was the Bay to Breakers 12 K - Hubby and I did mainly a walk and a little jogging.
It was a long day which started on the road very early... and the streets of SF were pretty lonely. We started out close to the San Francisco Bay near the Embarcadero.

The crowd started to gather and not sure if you can notice or not in the pic but they were throwing tortillas in the crowd to keep it energized and there were all sorts of people - young adults, middle ages & senior citizens,families pushing strollers, they were dressed in running gear, crazy costumes and some only had a hat, scarf or open jacket on at the most...

We started out in a crowd which thinned out - our jogging past the slow pack helped to keep a steady pace. Which we did off and on during our walk. There was music off and on along the course - it was upbeat and as occasional hiphop sound was quite the motivation. then we got to the dreaded Hayse Street Hill. I didn't think it was so bad - but I was so ready to be at the top though. We stopped to take some pics and went for higher ground in the park and found some empty pota pottys emoticon that also gave us some time to catch our breath. I guess all those times on the treadmill at 11-12 and sometimes up to 15 really paid off today... emoticon
We walked through Golden Gate Park which was relaxing after the hill and the views were enjoyable with the rose gardens

All was well until I got to mile 7 - I got a call from another SParker meeting us there MrsKittKitt.
I took the call and dh continued to walk - I have a new phone and still trying to learn the new touch - so it took a while - then I didn't see him... So I jogged along looking for him and trying to catch up. He in the meantime didn't see me so he stopped and looked for me behind him - I must have passed him and didn't notice him I was looking ahead and he was behind - He was looking behind and I was ahead emoticon I went on to the finish line - passing through myself - still looking thinking where is he picked up my tshirt at the booth walked past all the tents and people. I thought maybe he didn't see me and went on to our meeting spot S where I was meeting the other SP... not there either. I caught up with the other SP'rs and then went back towards the finish line. There he was between the tshirts and the picture booths...
So I didn't get many pics of the finish line - it was at the Great Highway along the Pacific coast beach. Is always a nice view although a little overcast today - here is the tshirt tents at the end of the finish line... emoticon

Now I am ready for good long hot soak in the tub!
