LiB does B2B

May 16, 2005

On Sunday, LiB completed her first race ever.  Bay to Breakers is an annual running/walking/beer-drinking/nudity-showing/costume-wearing race held in San Francisco, run from one side of the city to the other (from the bay to the ocean).  It’s the oldest concurrently run footrace in the world.  An astounding 70,000 people participated this year. 

The weirdest part was all of the tortilla-throwing at the start line before the race.  We’re talking hundreds & hundreds of tortillas being whirled like frisbees at people.  The running Elvi were amusing, as were the hundreds of other costumed individuals (and non-clothed individuals).

Since LiB doesn’t run (unless something big & nasty is chasing her), she walked it with her partner.  And she finished 2,069 out of around 70,000.  *moment of pride*  It was a big deal for me.  Thank you for letting me share it with you.

    Congratulations on finishing the race – and on your impressive place number, as well. :)

    I ran the Bay to Breakers once (when, I’m not saying!), it was actually a class at a community college I attended, we trained for a few months and then ran in the race to end the class. It was a blast, and I remember it fondly to this day. Congratulations on a great time/placement and in experiencing one of the premier races for those who want to get out and have some fun!

    Thanks Roy & Rikhei. It was fun, and something everyone in the area should do at least once (which is why, I guess, there are so many people doing it)!
