C25K W2D2

Posted by & filed under C25K.

Got out and ran in San Francisco tonight. Talked to some natives and they recommended I run the Embacaderro which is the area of SF that runs along the pier. Nice wide lane but a lot of tourists, other runners, cyclists, etc. I’m doing much better however when it comes to getting kicked out of […]
