Last week I was in San Francsisco and Mountain View for work. I convinced my coworker BB, who finished this year’s LA Marathon in less than 5 hours, to run in the morning with me. [BB stands for Big Baller as I've now christened her.] It was her first time in SF, and what better way to get a handle of [the flat part of] the city than to run it?
We stayed at the Hotel Monaco (pics to come) and left Geary St and headed east to the Embarcadero. I thought BB was going run at my pace (13-min mile); instead, I chased her as she ran her 9-min miles. Let’s just say that BB left me in the dust, and I became a tourist runner. Lucky for you, I brought my HTC EVO with me.
BB would wait for me at stoplights to catch up, but I told her to keep going so she would keep her heartrate and pace up. I’d catch up to her… eventually.
When we hit the Ferry Building, we saw a protest going on. I caught the back end of the parade.
BB met up with me here and we headed back to the Ferry Building for some breakfast before starting the rest of our day.
I stopped at Blue Bottle Coffee to grab a delicious cup of drip coffee. While standing in line to pay, I saw this man with some tight wedgie pants. Is this attractive to you?
BB and I picked up some breakfast foods at Cowgirl Creamery and had feast.
The morning was kicking off to a good start. Here’s BB and me on our way back to the hotel.
