Hi everyone, this weekend is the US Half and what better way to start an amazing race than with a bunch of runners wishing each other luck and giving high-fives? Okay, I’m a fan of the high-five and am hoping it makes a come-back. It’s way better than the fist bump and that exploding hand thing, I don’t get the explode… did my hand blow up when it collided with yours? Why would I want that?. I digress.
There are several people I know across the social networks (FB and Twitter) that are running it, so I was hoping we could organize a start line meet up. I know 2 friends coming from Oregon that are planning on meeting up along with 3 others that I train with in San Francisco… I plan on being at the start line around 6 AM (with a race start time of 7 AM.) But, let’s plan on meeting here around 6:30.
The meet up spot is really close to the start line. Here is a better shot so that you can see how close it is. It’s about a 30 sec. to 1 min. walk away from the start line. Convenient. I’m hoping that we can grab a group photo… hopefully someone has a camera, if not, we can use my iPhone to grab a snap shot of a bunch of runners about to kick some tail across the Golden Gate Bridge! Yea!
It’s an easily identifiable spot near the start line. It’s essentially at the entry way to a couple docks. I’ll plan on being there before 6:30, so if you see me, come over and say hi. This is what I’ll be wearing (and here are some photos of what I look like).
Hope to see you all out there. This is a challenging course, so any extra good running mojo from fellow runners will always help. Have a great race!
Feel free to leave a comment if you will be joining us, that way I can keep an eye out for you. Cheers.
