Bay to Breakers 2009

http://web.me.com/hydra9/Site_5/Blog/Entries/2009/5/17_A_tough_Bay_to_Breakers.html

This is one of those days that I am taught a lesson. Bay to Breakers was
hot, not hot like back in the day (which is a relative term) when I used to
mow lawns.
One of my main motivations for moving (and staying) in the Bay Area is the
weather.
The first couple of miles I felt fine but going up the hill in the heat with
no real breeze I was wiped out. Got a second wind in the park and finished
well but I was chasing shade.
This means that for the time, I will limit my races to the city limits of
San Francisco.
Ran into after the race a host of characters as I turned around and so I
ended up run/walking almost a half marathon. I am walking funny.
Saw this guy drop $32 dollars and I picked it up, then ran after them and
gave it back to them as that was the right thing to do. Turns out some
friends of mine saw me in the act of not acting the fool.
Acted as a sherpa for various characters on public transit and the location
of clean bathrooms.

btw I finished the race in 86 minutes which was 14 minutes slower than last
year. I am still in tomorrow’s Examiner.

But like last year, It took me longer to get from the city to Daly City than
it took me to run the race.
