Here's a photo of my running bib for the Bay To Breakers race this year. Yippee! I can't wait! I just know I'll make a new best time.
For those who don't know, the Bay To Breakers race is the biggest foot race in the world, with about 70,000 runners. It's held the third Sunday in May, and is a 12k (7.5 mile) course across San Francisco from the bay out to the ocean breakers (hence the name). Despite the fact that it's in San Francisco, there is only one major hill, the infamous Hayes Street hill, and it's a killer - a 1/2 mile long at about a 13% grade. It's an annual tradition to dress in costumes, or nothing at all. The "nothing at all" is illegal, but the police just stand by.
Here's some pictures from last year's race. I know they are poor quality. I hope to do better this year.
[4/27/06 update: Here's what today's B2B newsletter said, a little factoid that I didn't know: "When it was first run in 1912, the Race was known as the Cross City Race and didn't actually become Bay to Breakers until 1964."]
