It's here--this year's Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Half Marathon and 5K Fun Run. Tomorrow is the day, Golden Gate Park is the starting place.
The Great Highway, pictured here, will be closed to motor vehicles from 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon while the half-marathoners, after a circuit in Golden Gate Park, run down and back up the Great Highway, which borders Ocean Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
Not a bad place to run, what?
This year friends and I will be part of the 5K contingent instead of the 1/2 marathon; our run keeps us in Golden Gate Park itself - another beautiful spot in which to enjoy a morning of friendship, fresh air, and exercise.
A bonus: a portion of each entry fee will be donated to:
- Harbor Light Center for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse;
- Support for Families of Children with Disabilities;
- Koret Family House;
- Meals on Wheels San Francisco
There's no race day registration, but if you're in the area, stop and cheer on the runners. And next year -- I hope you'll join in the fun!
When you live in San Francisco, it's so easy to enjoy some of the many activities that go on here. Tomorrow morning we'll simply hop on a city bus, armed with our Clipper Card, and enjoy a hassle-free morning; no traffic to worry about, no parking woes. Are you ready to make your San Francisco dream come true? Give me a call; let's talk.
