The Running Event of the Year!
Finally the day I have been impatiently waiting for - This Sunday is the big day and by big, I mean HUGE! Why it’s The San Francisco Marathon of course!
I am running the first half and I couldn’t be more excited! Not only are a gazillion of my friends running in the events whether it be the First Half, Second Half, Full Marathon or Ultra, but so many activities leading up to Sunday, I can hardly contain myself! Of course I want to see you there at as many events as possible so here’s what’s happening!
So many events -
Wednesday July 25th @6pm - Bollywood Nights at the Conservatory of Flowers Sponsored by who else but the notorious SFM. The night holds dance lessons, drinks and delicious food trucks and so much more!
Thursday July 26th 6pm - 11pm - Runner Nightlife at the California Academy of Science I absolutely love the Academy of Science at night! This will surely be an event not miss that includes deep tissue massages, samples of Jamba Juice, drinking, dancing, not to mention access to some of the amazing exhibits!
Friday July 27th, 12pm - 7pm - Expo - Beat the crowd and come get your bib and enjoy all the treats the expo has to offer. I will be hanging out in the Tech Center from 11am - 3:30pm. Don’t be shy, come by and say hi! Make sure to check the link for the schedule of yoga classes and the Seminar Series with one of my very favorite runners that I look up to; Bart Yasso, Chief Running Officer of Runner’s World Magazine!
Saturday July 28th 9am Shake-Out Run w/ Lululemon - Come out and shake-out some of those last minute jitters with a 2-3 mile run! I will be there and I hope to see you too at the Justin Herman Plaza!
Saturday July 28th 9am - 5:30pm - Expo
Saturday July 28th 12pm - The San Francisco Marathon Social Media Meet-up - What a great chance to meet and greet those running buddies from cyberspace to real face at the Tech Center of the Expo! I have met some great people from Twitter, Blogging and social networking. I am ecstatic to meet you all!
Saturday July 28th 5:30pm and 8pm - Pasta Feed - Yum! Not certain what to do about dinner? There is still room to get your carb on at the Pasta Feed. The menu looks delicious and the dinner includes a special speech by my fav again - Mister Bart Yasso!
Sunday July 29th RACE DAY!!!!!!! - Duh! Make sure to double and triple check your wave times. If driving into the city, allow yourself plenty of time to park, bag check and perhaps use the restroom a few times! And you are ready to run the adventure of your life!!! Don’t forget to celebrate your accomplishments at the Post Race Celebration! EEEE I am so excited!
Lastly, did you happen to download the SFM App for your iphones and android? I love this app! Fellow Ambassador Luis showed me that you can track your friends on race day and even add them as a favorite! What a great idea! So with that - download the app and let me know what your bib number is as I would love to cheer you!!
Happy San Francisco Marathon Running everyone!!!! I will see you out there on the course! Just look for me in the SFM Ambassador shirt and....A tutu! Yep! That’s right thanks to fellow Ambassador Monika and Glam Runner! I never thought I would be caught dead running in a tutu, but I should know better as to never say never to the possibilities that await me! More on the tutu later! See you soon!
