How excited am I to say that?!?! Pretty excited. I plan to spend all weekend running, gardening, and playing tennis. Speaking of running, I received an email yesterday informing me that I did not win the lottery. Yep, you heard me. I did not win the lottery.....the race lottery for the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco.
Have you heard of this race? It is run through the nicest neighborhoods of San Francisco. Finishers cross the finish line on a red carpet, greeted by firemen wearing tuxedos holding silver platters. On the silver platters are little blue boxes from Tiffany's with the finishers necklace. I did this race in 2010 and it was awesome.
My friend Lindsay found a great house to rent. geographically, the house was not far from the start line, but it was not close either. It was amazing that we found a taxi driver to pick us up and get us to the starting line on time race morning.
|Awesome deck at the rental house. It was fun watching the fog roll in.|
|Starting line mayhem!|
