Morning Sparkpeople Family,
I did it!!!
The night before it rained in the City,but not heavy. When I work up the weather looked good. I was happy our local Bay Area Transit ran the train earlier than schedule to accommodate the runners and walkers. I was schedule to start the race at 7:00 am. When I got there, it was people and group in all kinds of home made costumes. That had these Salmons swimming up stream. I made a crown with the verbiage " Bay To Breakers". In my Corral ( C) There were acouple of people "NAKED" nothing on...it was all hanging out..( if you know what I mean ). The people who were walking should of been in the last Corral,because it slows down the people,who actually want to run,so I had to run around and cut through people. At mile 6, it started raining, but at mile 7 it was gone...The race start at Embarcadero and ended at the Beach ( Great Highway ).
12K = 7.46 miles
My Time was [ 1:31 ]
I stopped three times ,due to my shins flaring up or because jump in front of me and threw me off,but I still enjoyed my run.
The Women's Winner Time was [ 39.12 ]

I love the points...
Well Spark Family,
In 2 Days and 23 hrs. The biggest race in the U. S. the San Francisco " Bay to Breakers " 12k ( 7.6 miles ). It's sold-out,because its the 100th Race and for the first time they are giving everyone a medal, if they cross the finish line. Although, the weather man said it's suppose to rain...People won't care because they will be in some kind of Costume and having a good time. Young and Old will run or walk - 55, 000 people .
This race has seven Corrals... I'm in " C" after the Seeded Division. Depending on which corral you are in,that's your start time. The race starts at 7:00 am,and that's the time I start,since I'm in " C". I would like to do it in 1.5 or better...but I'm just happy to be apart of the biggest race in the U.S.

This is beginning and ending of my marathon journey. I said the beginning,because I am training for my fourth marathon, and ending meaning this is the last marathon I am going to do. Today, at lunch time I took a spinning class and when I got home from work, I did some jogging for forty-five minutes. It felt good to get back into the groove again of running.
I will be jogging Monday,Wednesday and Saturdays,but I will also continue to go to the gym and take a spinning class three days a week and a bootcamp class on Tuesday's and Thursday's,so hopefully,that will get me in shape.
