The time has come: San Francisco Marathon is this weekend. After going on a shake out run with Bart Yasso and volunteering at the Expo at Fort Mason tomorrow, I’m going to relax, stretch, and eat a solid pre-race dinner. Today, Jesse’s volunteering at the Vineman Aquabike Expo before tomorrow’s race; he’ll join me for 26.2 on Sunday. With temperatures expected to be in the high 70s all weekend, it’s sure to be a beautiful and eventful weekend (and hopefully not too hot in Guerneville for Jesse’s Saturday race).
