So today was Bay to Breakers which is actually four events. One an
elite running event involving very fast humans. The next is a huge
group of runners that will not be breaking any records. Then comes the
leisurely walkers followed by decadent drunks. Upon observing all four
I think the last group exceeds the highest tolls on themselves. The
Kenyans have nothing on the Axe wearing Chico State grade slowly
rising like an opponent in an early Tyson fight.
I am in the second group and therefore did not sleep well at all last
night. When I have to race early in the morning I am always anxious
and I have dreams that I overslept the starting gun. This never
happens but still.
I was very well organized including a BART card for $2.85.
Every year they have a bunch of guys at the start holding signs about
how Mockers (among others) will be going to Hell, which is as real as
the Death Star or Jabba the Hutt's palace. They are a bunch of
tortillas and I threw mostly at the sign holders.
I was really happy with my time of 72 minutes. Slower than my 68
minute goal but thinking back, I am not quite sure where I got that
number. Still seven minutes faster than last year.

Walked back over the race and it got crazier and crazier as I got
further up. It went from the 2nd group, to the third to the insane
forth.

Met up with Alison. This woman needed to use my phone to find her
friend who was not findable but who kept on texting me about the
location, I would respond with, "I do not know where your friend went"

Ran into someone who was a Lost fan that dressed up like Frank Chu. I
got Frank on the horn to talk to the person dressed up like him.

As it got COLD and foggy I ended up buying a shirt at the thrift store
so I would not freeze.

It took me longer for a bus to pick me up and take me to the Daly City
BART station than it did for me to run Bay to Breakers. In a way I
felt like John Henry.
