2014 Golden Gate Half Marathon (formerly US Half)

I have run this race 3 times, and really like the course and the vibe of the event. I definitely recommend it to my friends who run. Beautiful views crossing the Golden Gate!

2014 Oakland KP Half Marathon

I loved this race! I wanted to do it again this year but it conflicts with another race I'm running. I had a great time on the course because of everyone cheering and the great atmosphere. The course was fast and flat, which was awesome.

The only thing I would say is be prepared to wait a little while for bag check! There were definitely long lines last year so that part wasn't very smooth. Otherwise, awesome race!

2013 The San Francisco Marathon

This was my 3rd marathon that I've ever run and wow, what a challenging one! The course is tough because of the hills, but I really enjoyed it and will be running it again in 2015.

Definitely recommend running this one at least once! The views from the Golden Gate Bridge are wonderful. And the long sleeve tech tee is my favorite race shirt ever!

2014 The Giant Race SF 10K

My friends are huge Giants fans so I joined them for this race - it was a fun one! I enjoyed it, but because I am not a really big baseball fan, I would probably not do this one again. You do get discounted tickets to a baseball game, so that was great - my friends and I took advantage of that registration perk. The tech tee was really nice, too.

The bathrooms were a little limited at the start line, and the race corrals got kind of crowded and jam-packed. That was the only downside to the start of the race.

After the race, getting to be on the field at AT&T Park was super fun! The atmosphere was great and they had a lot of snacks after the race, which was nice.

Great course, great views from the Golden Gate Bridge! The switchbacks at the end of the bridge are a little challenging, but it is a fun and challenging race. I would definitely recommend doing this boutique race - I love that it is a smaller sized race because it is not too overwhelming of a start or a finish.

2013's long sleeve tech tee is one of my favorites but unfortunately the threading is coming apart a little bit. It's not a huge deal but I wished the material was a little more hardy.

Overall, well-organized race and I always recommend this to my friends!
