|Crossing the finish line of the San Francisco Marathon 5K race|
The race began and ended near the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero, which made for a flat and fast race, mostly along the water.
The race started a couple minutes late for whatever reason, and the start was a bit crazy, with a lot of slower runners starting up front. A little organization at the start would be very beneficial in the future.
After about a half mile, the race thinned out and I was able to enjoy a nice run in the morning, before hopping a plane back home.
The expo for the race was crowded, with a lot going on in the building. It took place overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and had a lot of great vendors and race gear.
May years ago (probably 7-8), I ran the SF Half Marathon, which occurs the same day. It was a lot of fun, even though it was such a foggy morning I couldn't see anything. Overall, this is a good race to do, especially if you're in/around SF.
