On Saturday Jan 31, Ali and I went for a walk in San Francisco. We had to go the city to get my kilt which was been altered. It was waist 36inches, and I had to have it reduced to 31! Anyway, after we had recovered the kilt, we went for a walk to let Ali see where I had run in the US Half Marathon in October 2003. Photos at Marathons. We walked over the bridge and back. There's no doubt, Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most impressive things I've ever seen. It's more than a bridge - it's an Icon of the United States. Running across it and back in the US Half Marathon was an unforgettable experience - as well as very demanding. The route up and down hills in the Presidio leading onto the bridge were tough. The path under the bridge on the North Shore was truly brutal.
