|Beer Aid Stations? Yep.|
The historic Bay to Breakers is a USA Track and Field Certified 12k (7.46 miles).
From sea level at the Embarcadero the course rises steeply along the Hayes Street Hill. Around the 2.5-mile mark runners climb an 11.15% grade between Fillmore Street and Steiner Street.
The remainder of the course gradually flows downhill alongside the Panhandle through Golden Park to the Finish Line at the Great Highway.
The race itself, if you google it, along with Bay to Breakers training plans, you will be amused. It does draw very fast runners (my Coach runs it almost every year), but its really about the spectacle of it all, complete with 'centipede' (we have a similar race here with centipedes); outrageous costumes and debauchery! While I do take my races a bit more serious, I do fully intend to go out there, run with Lisa in whatever outfits/theme we come up with and just have a ball! And if you google Bay to Breakers race photos, you are going to see a lot of nudity. Just a warning! Naked running? Sign me up! :O) I obviously am not going to post any of the naked running photos, but I am a little surprised at a) how many people run this naked and b) that they are allowed to!!
|We will definitely have the sex factor going!|
|And wow, I love this look!|
