Bay to Breakers 12K Race

Wow, good lord I have a lot of blogging to catch you all up on!  Back in May the B man and I ran the epic Bay to Breakers 12K race. Its the oldest consecutively run annual footrace in the world, a staple of the city by the bay since 1912.  Its more than a race, its a shit show. Like, A SHIT SHOW. There were people wasted at 7am! Costumes abound...and even those who are not wearing a costume...or clothes AT ALL.

The route follows from the 'Bay' Embarcadero (2 blocks from our house) to the other side of the city to the 'Breakers' at the ocean. This was a FANTASTIC way to see all that the city has. Though I was pretty out of shape to just bang out 7 miles so most of it was painful hahaha.

But not as painful as this kid was having it...one of us was hung over from drinking the day before. Sucka!!

This was the craziness of the starting line!  It was CRAZY! People threw soft tortilla shells into the crowd...not sure of the significance but its a tradition.

As the race began it was so crowded because a lot of people don't actually register to run, they just join in the party.

Running up some of the MANY hills in San Francisco!

Yep, one of the naked men on the course....why can't the YOUNG and CUTE ones be running naked?

And then us at the end!!!

Hello beautiful ocean, you were much appreciated!
