San Fran Has Some Hills


Yes, yes it does.

Although my traveling partner is flatter than flat, San Francisco is not.

I forgot how many hills this darn course has.


I still love it and had a blast.


I got 3:26:20. That’s with two stops to tie my shoes. I’ve never had to do that before. It was weird.

It was a good run though. Those hills kicked my bootie and it was a tough course, but the run felt good, I didn’t have any dehydration issues and my foot didn’t hurt at all so I’m pretty excited about that.

My time was even slower than the last time I ran The San Francisco Marathon two years ago.

Although I was a little disappointed with myself and my time at the end, I was all smiles once I saw some pretty cool dudes at the finish line.


Right? How cool is this robot man? You better believe I sent that picture to the boys right away.

I also bumped into my man Bart.


This guy doesn’t care about my time either. He’s just glad he got to make the trip.


I’ll get a full recap up on the blog soon, but today was a good day.



Hope you had a wonderful weekend.


Congrats to everyone else who raced today!

    I thought of you this morning! I’m glad it went well. BTW, what are you drinking?! Looks like a carton of milk? And I just wanted to tell you that I got a Halo headbad today – and I was skeptical, but it fits NICE and I bet it’s going to work very well. I got the pink 🙂 woot!

    Well done! I’ve heard SF is brutally hilly. It’s a bucket list race, even though it makes my flatter-than-a-pancake prairie girl heart weep quietly 🙂
