Bay to Breakers

Every year the foot race from the Bay to the Pacific Ocean comes down JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park, just a 10 minute walk from our home.

Conditions today must be good for the runners: It rained earlier this morning, and it's cool. If the sun comes out it will be shining on their backs as they run westward.

Gilbert Okari just won the race in 34:20. Now I'm watching the costumed runners. First costumed runner was dressed as a blue/white Mini Cooper like my car. Some runners dress as spawning salmon and run the race against the flow. Others dress as centipedes or run naked!

Mayor Gavin Newson was "one happy mayor", finishing in 54 minutes. I noticed he was wearing a SF Apple Store T-shirt.

The last 'runners' will probably be the alcohol drinkers dresssed as Tiki huts.
