A GOLDEN RUN

100 bridgeI spent some time in San Francisco for the first time last week and really loved it. I saw the Giants play the Cubs, ate some delicious food, and ran across the Golden Gate Bridge.

A friend of mine suggested I drive across it, but I thought, “Why do that when I can run?”

It was a longer run than I planned for (don’t you love it when that happens?), but it was awesome. I ran along the water, past Alcatraz (and thought about The Rock, obviously), through some parks, up some pretty righteous hills, and when I finally got to the bridge I was like, “Damn, this running path is narrow!” It was also suuuuper windy and full of tourists, but I loved it.

But why tell you about it when I can show you? I took a video of it while I was running, and thankfully never fell off the path, ran into any bikers, or dropped my phone into the bay. Pardon the poor quality, but hopefully it gives you a sense of what it was like if you’ve never had the chance to run across it yourself!
