Ok one more on the B2B 12 K - did I mention that this is the ONLY walk/jog race I have ever been in? Never was a runner even as a young one. I am in a family of sprinters - my brothers all won races & relays in HS - we are all short & fast. I never run/jog because I have 2 speeds walk or run fast then I get too tired too soon... so I have never been a jogger - don't know how to pace myself to jog... Oh well that is another story
or excuse! ha! But I am learning after 50 yrs - insert another ha ha here!
Back to the stats - if you are interested - or not!
time from the start to the finish 2hrs 20 min 24 sec
overall placings 18,774th of 24,303 - I was in front of 5,529 people who was behind me or didn't finish because they partied too much - yes this next guy was in front of me
of all the females - I was 8,915 of 12,477 - So I beat 3,562 of those, many of those were probably young partiers...
and finally of the females age 50-59 - I was 1,111 of 1.833 - I was ahead of only 722 of those. I could see from these stats that the older females are pretty healthy and that according to dh stats there more females in the race than males - there were 11,826 males and 12,477 females registered.
all layered up and ready to go - it was a cool day almost 50 to start and ended around 56.
FINALLY: next photo I stole from SP user USFBull's blog to show our SP pride!
AILULI, myself, USFBULL, MRSKITTKITT, BOBBY_SF, all members of the Bay to Breakers team on SP. I missed some others who went through before I got there.
It was a great day and I might add I am not sore today
