|Golden Gate Bridge||Burns Supper|
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 being altered. It was waist 36 inches, 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. We walked over the Golden Gate 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 Golden Gate Bridge 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. I managed 1hr 52min - I'll do better in 2004.

First running event of the year will be the San Juan Bautista Mission Run - 10 miles. Saturday Feb 7, 2004. No predictions of performance, I'm suffering from an injury from last season - pain in the glutes (top of right leg) http://www.sanjuanbautista.com/mission10.html
