thwarted again...

Well, once again I missed the Boston time.  I swear to you, that race is slowly becoming my mistress-bitch; mean, unattainable, but just plain awesome.  My NIKE time was 3:59:59.  It's a little slower than the Brookings Marathon, but still under four (barely). 
This race was amazing. It was challenging, hilly, cold, rainy, and beautiful all at the same time. 

My flight home was delayed and so I didn't get home until 2am, and started work at 7am, so I am not even close to being in a good spot to discuss the race, but here are some pictures to whet your appetite.  Look for a longer post later on in the week that will recap how things went.

 Here is the picture of the start line. Because I am a nike plus user, I got to be right at the front. What an awesome perk!

Here is a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was beautiful. There was a lot of fog around it, and so it just kind of emerged from the clouds. Very magical.

Mile 25. What an amazing view. I just kept staring at the waves as I ran into the finish line. They were the reason I made it in under four hours.

This is the adorable fireman who gave me my Tiffany finisher's necklace. Isn't he handsome? They all were. I guess San Francisco firefighters have to be cute to get on the force or something.

Until next time....

  1. I think it says a lot that you were able to take pics and run. Can I be you when I grow up??
