Great Morning









One of my favorite part sof running is coming up with new and different routes. Well, today was something pretty special. I left the house at 6:25 and within five minutes, despite my head lamp and reflective vest, I successfully evaded my first car. I went down to our local towpath, through Sausalito and then up the hills to the Golden Gate Bridge. I missed sunrise by about five minutes but it was still a site to behold. All you runners out there: try to run across the GGB at least once in your lifetime It will be well worth your while. I then dropped down to Crissy Field (and got a little confused in the process), through to the Dolphin Club (one of the oldest swim clubs - if not the oldest -- in the country) through the various Piers, to the Ferry Building and at long last -- my office. I have never been so happy to make it to work. All told, it was 16.7 miles and I arrived a hair before 9 am. I felt pretty good until around 4:00 pm, at which point I would have given anything for a nap. It was super fun and something I'd definitely do again. Attached are pictures from along the way.
