Hello from San Francisco.
Yep, you get two posts today.
We made it.
Awww…… dang it. Miss this guy, but I found the flat version of him when I was packing in the wee hours of the morning. I decided he would come along for the trip. This little race weekend will be a celebration for him. I’ve been needing something for some more motivation. Why not Flat Kitty? Ha.
He was pretty smart today though. He chose the exit aisle on the plane.
There was so much more leg room.
Unfortunately he wasn’t much help with the whole taking the BART into the city and figuring all that out, but we’re learning as we go.
He did help me find some bananas right away.
He spotted some purple sweet potatoes too, but I don’t think we can figure out how to cook those up in the hotel room.
This seems like it was the happening spot. I’ve never seen a line so long for ice cream.
Does anyone know, is it worth it? I don’t remember what the place is called, but it’s in the Ferry Building.
We had a quick lunch at Gott’s
and a Starbucks shaken tea.
After a rather long bus ride, we made it to the expo.
We made it there just in time to pick up my number, shirt and make a few stops before it closed.
A few key stops were the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series booth,
a quick visit with our Big Sur Marathon friends,
finding a cute shirt to add to my wish list
and a stop to check out some new Vega Sport goods.
Did yo know they have protein bars? I haven’t tried these, but I might have to.
I thought I’d show them how cool it looks to have your pocket sticking out all day without anyone telling you.
I knew there was a really great reason I especially loved this race.
Established in 1977. Awesome since that’s the year I was born. I guess I have to run this race every year now. Ha.
I ran into this awesome lady on the way out who’s running tomorrow too.
Nothing about the shuttle line or the ride back were short.
Outfit is ready. Now it’s time for pizza and sleep.
Have a good one!
See you tomorrow after the race!
Oh, and before I forget.
The winners of the GIVEAWAYS-
Congrats ladies! Email me your mailing information and I’ll pass it along.
I need a good post race eating place for tomorrow night. Let me know if you have a favorite!
Anyone know what’s up with that ice cream place?
Anyone want to send me some Flat Kitty pictures?
