This past weekend I traveled up to San Francisco to participate in the 98th annual Bay to Breakers 12K Run. It was a hoot. It's a tradition to dress up (we did not), or run naked (we did not do that either!) and to throw tortillas at the the start (not sure why).
I believe about 65,000 people do the run/walk and it seems like the whole city turns out to watch. Tons of great energy.
While waiting in the corral for walkers (I walked so I could enjoy the event with my friend Erica), someone spotted Jerry, the at-home winner of the recent season of The Biggest Loser. I snapped a picture but you'll have to click on it to enlarge and see him in the far background. Everyone started chanting "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!" and he hammed it up, flexing his muscles like he did on the finale, for the crowd.
12K is about 7.5 miles and we did it in about 2 hours 20 minutes. It was VERY hot, not normal for San Francisco so we did not push it. Just enjoyed the walk through the City and Golden Gate Park to the ocean.
