Joan’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch

We went to Joan’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch in Livermore this morning and I think we got some great pictures.  The lady in the video is Joan, the owner of the pumpkin patch.

I Ran Like A Girl!

It’s official, according to the Nike site I ran like a girl in the marathon!  I think for walking the majority of the course we made pretty good time.  Haha, still funny though.

SF Nike Women’s Marathon 2009

Well, we survived the marathon today and I’m pretty sore but glad we did it.  I clearly have some training to do for next year but here are some pictures and a video of the 13.2 mile death march.

We went to the city last night to pick up our marathon gear.  I carried a pink (OK it has some red tones to it) bag which had “Run Like a Girl” through the city and BART.  Even though it was a pink bag I felt so athletic.  I mean I’m sure people looked at me and said “obviously he is an athlete ready to run a marathon”…I could see them saying that…I could.  Not to mention I posed in front of a women’s marathon race tent (yes this is me posing).  Even though we are walking the marathon I have a feeling I’m still going to be feeling it Monday morning.  The “race” starts at 7am tomorrow so I’m readying myself by blogging and drinking coffee this morning.  Game on marathon…game on.

Had a fun time at the President’s Dinner tonight at 7,910 feet.  We took a gondola right up to the top of the mountain where they have a lodge for the dinner.  Here is a picture of some of us before dinner.  I’m coming home to California tomorrow!
