A very simple question asking if anyone was running the Emerald Bay 12k turned into a beautiful day spectating and earning a nice $25 dollar Sports Basement gift card!
Sandra, Alyssa, and I braved the weather reports and headed out to Sports Basement in the Presidio to cheer on the runners and in turn, receive a $25 gift card. It had been AGES since I got into the city for a run, so we suggested running afterwards.
Last year, I ran this race and raved about how enjoyable it was. I wear the long sleeve shirt religiously around the house once I get home from work.
We met up at 8:30 to get ready to cheer the first runners. I hadn’t brought my new camera to the Presido yet, so I took some classic, obligatory AM bridge photos (untouched by me).
Soon, Sandra and Alyssa were there and the race began! I got to try out my quick sports shutter speed to get some runner photos. Sorta kinda in love with this setting. I felt like a race photographer! HEY maybe I should do that next year…I’ll add it to my list.
Without boring you with photos of randoms, let me show you the most amazing view that we got.
The weather actually behaved and only a few times did rain clouds pour! A success of a weekend…Now, if the clouds could have held off for my 10 miler the day before!
I fear that I won’t have as many photos next weekend while I spectate since plans are in the works to run during the Oakland Half Marathon with Naomi for the last few miles! How fun!!
