214--California: San Francisco Bay to Breakers Race
@ CherieSpotting     May 17 2004 - 17:40 PST
cherie writes: The 93rd annual Bay to Breakers race was held Sunday May 16th in San Francisco. I did the 7-mile race with 60,000 of my closest friends! Chris, Lisa, Judy wore goofy knee-high socks with men's boxer briefs. I wore my space-cowboy hat with feathered-glasses and an orange-flowered dress. Greg threw a sparkly dress-shirt together with flaming shorts.

We joined up with our martian friends and their rocket ship sporting 5 kegs! Along the way we ran into friends Mike & Darla with their daughter Shannan!

In the end, we made 39 minute miles and finished the race in a bit over 4:35 minutes. With a little training, next year I think I can come in with under 30 minute miles.

Perhaps Jean said it best. "The Bay to Breakers Race is a giant walking costume party." Here are my photos.
