50k Birthday in San Francisco

Ever since I ran my marathon birthday – 26.2 miles on my 26.2th birthday – a few years ago, I’ve been running my age in miles for every birthday. Most recently, I turned 31, so I ran 31 miles around San Francisco.

Highlights this year:

  • Ran the whole thing without looking at a map – it was cool to be able to get around my city
  • Got to see some of my favorite parts of the city (Ferry Building, AT&T Park, , Dogpatch, Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, Cliff House, GG Bridge, Embarcadero)
  • Visited a new (to me) place – the Labyrinth at Land’s End
  • Ran despite the rain (which was pretty aggressive!)

Here’s a link to the Strava if you’re into that kind of thing
