It is the day before Nike Women’s Half Marathon 2014 in San Francisco.
You can’t really miss that there is a race going on in San Francisco this weekend.
This is the fifth time I am running the Nike race in San Francisco. My first Nike Women’s race was the Full Marathon in 2009. Then I learned you get the Tiffany’s necklace when you run the half marathon. Hence, with all subsequent races I took the smarter, “I am only half crazy” option of the half marathon.
Burgers at Sears Fine Food on Friday
A hearty breakfast on Saturday morning (a new find: Sugar Cafe on Sutter St)
Exploring the Nike Expotique (disappointing as usual)
Finding my name on the Niketown Union Square Wall of Fame
Decorating my Team in Training jersey (hint: those spray colors didn’t work well)
Hanging out with my favorite Team in Training friends from all over
Walking too much the day before the race
You probably have heard of the wall. There is no wall. There comes a point when your training runs out.
