Running Bay to Breakers

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all are doing well! Well as you can tell from the title, I’M RUNNING BAY TO BREAKERS!! ❀

Yep, this will be my first time running it. Β FUN FACT about me, I actually like running.

Yep, always have and always Β I will. I can tell you it has become a love/hate relationship but I still go back to running. I did cross country in high school and loved it! The running community is unbelievable and sharing that experience with other runners all just trying to beat their P.R. (Personal Record), is outstanding. I also believe you make some friends for like because I still run with some of my friends back in high school. πŸ™‚

Anyways, this Sunday is Bay to Breakers and the closer it gets the more excited I am. It’s 7.5 miles up and down the hills of San Francisco and to be honest it’s exciting! I did the Hot Chocolate Run in S.F earlier this year and that was killer! 9.3 miles!!! I have been training for hills and the long distance so I’m hoping I can get a decent time for myself. If I can be under a 13 min pace per mile than I know I have succeeded.

Everyone tells me that it’s going to be very crowded and I’ll see lots of people in costume, which is amazing!! I am not running in a costume as it’s too much of a distraction for me, but maybe in the future I might change my mind. Bay to Breakers has also been on my bucket list of races to do, especially in S.F.

Why San Francisco? Well I live in the Bay Area so I am not that far from the city and anything I can do while I am still here I want to do. Also running in the city is really fun. πŸ™‚

Are any of you racing Bay to Breakers this Sunday? Wearing a costume? Let me know in the comments and maybe we can meet up πŸ™‚ I’ll let you all know how I did after my race, so keep an eye out on all my social media!!

Talk to you all soon!
