Pre-SF Marathon Expo & Workout

Tomorrow's the San Francisco Marathon. My wife (@LosBee) and I were going to run the half for the American Liver Foundation's Run for Research, but like I partially explained in an earlier post, I had to bow out of the half.

Some friends came up from San Diego and we're going to run the 5k together. @LosBee is still running the half—the longest race distance either of us have run.

Picking up our bibs and goody bag was fun—the expo had some interesting booths and folks. I met Erin from Running Divas and checked out her apparel booth. Nike had a conference-quality booth set up with apparel, and giant iMacs that allowed you to sign up for their Nike+ Human Race 10k, which I signed up for earlier in the day online. (It's a Nike+-able event, meaning if you have the Nike+ you can compete no matter where you are. You don't have to be in a race city to do it.)

It was exciting, and I almost threw caution (and good sense) to the wind and went ahead with the half marathon anyway, but I think I'd probably come out of it too beat up and end up messing up training for the San Jose Rock & Roll Half Marathon. Live to fight another day and all that.

So, I'm extremely excited for @LosBee, and I'm sure she's gonna knock it out of the park.

I was slated for a 3 mile run today, followed by circuit training. My run was cursed the lack of a good route—too many traffic lights, too man hills—so I cut it short and hit circuit training. I need to find a good route near the gym so this doesn't happen again.

I'll share my Nike+ profile soon, which'll be a better log for the run workouts.

Have a great Sunday, bitches.
