Two noteworthy races

Greetings fellow runners, again! Two notes in one day…

Two races worthy of consideration coming up in the winter are the Kaiser Half Marathon in SF on Super Bowl Sunday, and the Napa Valley Marathon on March 3.

The Kaiser Half is a great race, starts in GG Park, runs out to the Panhandle, back through the Park to Ocean Beach, out to the zoo and back to finish near the windmills in the Park. I’ve done this race maybe a dozen times. Keeps me running through the holiday season as it’s near the peak of the training cycle, and you can feel virtuous eating all that guacamole and chicken wings at the Super Bowl party later in the day. I believe the price goes up soon, check it out.

I just signed up for the Napa Valley marathon on March 3. I ran this race in 2017, it was one of the best supported races I’ve run, nice course, nice size (about 5,000 runners), just a very pleasant experience. They”ve added a half marathon this year, so that may expand its appeal.

Join me in Napa! The price goes up after 11:59 pm today, September 16.

Eliud Kipchoge Breaks Marathon World Record at Berlin Marathon

Greetings fellow runners!

First, congratulations to club member Lisa Lawley, who ran the Berlin Marathon today! Way to go, Lisa!

Running with her today was Eliud Kipchonge, easily the best marathoner ever.

Today he attained a phenomenal achievement – a 2:01 marathon! And he beat the previous record by almost a minute, at a level when improvements are typically in increments of seconds. Check out the story in the Runner’s World link below.

Kipchoge has now won the Olympic gold, holds the official world record, and has the unofficial fastest time (the infamous Nike project last year).

Rainer has graciously offered to host coffee after our run tomorrow! Please join us at Rainer’s house, 324 Scott Street, #2. It’s just a couple of blocks from Duboce Park and the start of our run. Rainer has a deck and is promising croissants/bagels! How delightful. What a great way to kick off the holiday long weekend, and the start of September.
