Bridge to Bridge 2001

We already had theater tickets for Saturday night. So, we just stayed the night in the Haight-Ashbury. It was a beautiful morning as we rolled out of the bed at the Red Victorian and into our running clothes.

I had intended to use this race to dial-in the pace I would use in the Marathon next month. I failed miserably. 

Instead of maintaining a steady 141 to 151 HR, I let the race get into me. As you can see, I spent most of the time around 168 bpm. This was not disciplined running! On the positive side: I sustained 9 1/2 to 10 minute mile pace for about 70 minutes with enough energy left to sprint up hill to the finish line. See the results at
I finished 2990 out of 4444 in the 12k race. Mary came in 4289 in the 12k and my sister Kathy was number 1569 out of 2986 in the 7k.
