here's the picture of me that's on the sfgate web site (link here).  You can better see the fringe on the bottom of the dress and that I'm carrying a small purse.

Race results are up.  My official time is 4:07:32.  My age group was registered incorrectly (was done through work, so they never asked so they probably just put some random age down).

finished at about 4:10 race clock time (so maybe a minute or two faster for my time). Legs were still not recovered from last week's race, plus, it's not easy running a marathon in a 3/4 length pink dress. However, the spectators and other racers were exceptionally supportive of a guy running in a pink dress and that provided me a lot of motivation all race long.

weight is lower than it's been in quite awhile.  not quite sure what to make of that.  dehydrated?  Body still adapting to ultra running?  Losing muscle somewhere due to minimal swimming, no long bike rides, and no running this week at all?  Dunno what's going on, but being lighter for the mary this weekend probably won't hurt.

 

I haven't yet decided if I want to try to "race" the Nike Women's Marathon or to just have fun.  If I race it, I can probably finish top 3 in my AG based on last year's results, although I have no idea how recovered my legs are from the last weekend.  If I just run to have fun, I can dress up in drag or something or stick with others from my work who are doing it.

went to visit Peets yesterday.  Here are a few pictures from their new roastery in Alamenda.  This was cool for me to see since my wife and I are big Peets fans and we also roast our own coffee at home.   It's cool that they actually have people who listen for the crack to monitor the roast level (picture 3).  Apparently, starbucks just does automated roasting.  The red bags in picture 4 in the distrubution area are the holiday blend, which they just started making.  They gave us bags of that, which was nice.

 (Apologies for such crappy photo quality since I only had my blackberry with me).
