I love the Kaiser Half Marathon. In my opinion, its one of the best half-marathon courses in the Bay Area (it also holds my PR for this distance so I’m biased that way). I signed up for this race when registration opened last Fall but ended up dropping down to the 5K. This was my first time running this distance.
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.
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.
