2013 Kaiser Half-Marathon Race Recap

This past Sunday I ran the Kaiser Half-Marathon in San Francisco. It was the 30th anniversary of the race, and my second time running it.

It's one of my favorite races to run. It's a nice sized race (about 5500, plus 5K runners), very well organized, and they mail you your bib and chip - no need to make an extra trip to an expo. It's also the race where last year I shockingly beat my half-marathon PR.

What's Next {aka Fear the Race}


I made it all of eight days without being registered for a marathon. The truth is, within hours after NYCM being cancelled I knew what I wanted to do next.

But in that moment I was so emotional about the race being cancelled that I had a "West Coast Bias full court press" going on. So I forced myself to take some time to mull over it and make sure it was not just a reactive decision, but one that I truly wanted.
