On September 7th, I had the pleasure of participating & completing the SF Giant Race! It is rare to have nice weather in San Francisco, but by the time the 5K portion rolled around, it was warm & sunny. Amazing :)
Vinh couldn't make it to this 5K (due to monthly Army training) so my sister Lonnie subbed for him. We arrived early thinking that the 5K would start promptly at 10:50AM. To our surprise, our corral didn't start until 30 minutes after that since they waited 10 minutes per corral, ugh...

30 minutes into the 5K...
We were surprised to find that it was hot by the time we started jogging through the course. That is strange for San Francisco weather. I am not complaining though since it was a beautiful day out!
Bow & arrow :)
Recognize him from the SJ Giants run? LOL
Awesome metal tree art
Bay Bridge selfie :P
We ended up finishing the race in a little under an hour. This included pitstops for photo ops as well as portapotties, haha :P
I was bummed that Lou the Seal wasn't around for photo ops as I haven't had a chance to get one with him. However, there was plenty of photo ops with us being on the playing field & with the two World Series trophies. There was also the free snacks & drinks from our awesome sponsors & even swag :)

That's my Giants!
We noticed a really cool van in our parking lot so we had to take some photos with it as well before leaving the run!
See the dragon? ;)
We ended up getting a two turn awards since Vinh & I participated in the San Jose Giants Run back in July. We received special SJ & SF Giants earbuds as our prize, yayyy! Overall, another fun run :)
Here's a mini collage of our photographer photos:
Have you done a 5K/run/walk lately? If not, is there one in the future? :)
