Running the Home Depot Half-marathon in San Francisco, along with Kevin, Phil, Sharon, and Steve B. It was a little cold and misty–cold enough to use gloves–but not too bad for running.

It was a damp and dark early-morning start, and I had problems waking up in time to meet the others from the Tri-City Tri Club.  Indeed, I still look half-asleep here.

Here I'm wearing the singlet Loren sent me as a surprise holiday gift just 2 days before the event... good timing.  Thanks, bud!
