Coit Tower, Downtown SF, The Pyramid. Shot from Aquatic Park Pier.
We stopped this morning on the sea break pier that protects Aquatic
Park. While I ride by this pier every day, I rarely notice it as I
pass. It dawned on me that I had not been on this stretch since the ING Corporate Challenge run in 1998. I remember that particular run for specific two reasons. First, that was probably the last time that I ran 10K. In fact, I probably haven't run 10K cumulatively since then. Secondly, months after the race, I received a plaque in the mail. It seems that I came in second place in my age group in the Clydesdale division. Not knowing what the Clydesdale division was, I looked it up and learned that it was the 200 pound plus club. So, great, I was the second fastest fat guy in the under 25 category. I guess my other running mates were either older or much skinnier. Talk about a back-handed compliment.
