About 42 partners got up early today and followed Judson Althoff’s invitation to join him for a 5k run through the streets and hills of San Francisco. I have tried to take part in this event in previous years but this was the first time I actually managed to get up early enough to make it. The hills were taking their toll though as people were too much out of breath to chat with other partners during the run. But it feels really satisfying to have done something before the real start of the day.
There was a little bit of confusion about the route despite several helpers along the way. But I guess at 6AM you really don’t want to make eye contact with people standing around dark street corners yelling at you. You can check the route I took at runkeeper.
But this was not the last sports related activity, the current World Series Champions San Francisco Giants are here with a fan shop and a photo opportunity with the World Series Trophy. And of course, the Oracle Racing team is here aswell, they put up an AC45 in Moscone West and are doing a little bit of exhibition, simulator challenge, tours of the team base here in San Francisco and a session on wednesday about how they used technology to win the America’s cup.
