I have lived in the Bay Area since 1998 and not once have I ever had the desire to participate in Bay to Breakers. While it's amusing to watch the debauchery, it's never fun to be in it. After realizing that last year was the 99th running of this race, I decided that I would have to participate in it's 100th anniversary. I mean, how many opportunities would I have to be in the 100th running of any race? And to top it off, for the very first time, there would be Finisher medals. Isn't it all about the bling?!
