My First Bay to Breakers

Crossing the finish line at the 100th Bay to Breakers!

Crossing the finish line at the 100th Bay to Breakers!

On May 15 I ran the 100th running of the Bay to Breakers.  I have never run this foot race, and the only run that I have run close to this foot race is the Bridge to Bridge run–also a 12K run.

On this run, I decided to break in my new Saucony Progrid Mirage.  This shoe is categorized as minimalist as reviewed by Running Times Magazine.  It seems to feel tight, but I didn’t really notice it much during the run.  Because it has less in terms of heel compared to the traditional cushioned running shoe, I really felt my forefoot landing more often than before.  I also noticed that I was able to coast on the downhill portions of this run.  Because it felt light, I didn’t really feel like I was getting tired.  The run felt fast; as a matter of fact, having been stuck in the C corral made it difficult to cover ground fast early in the run.

Nevertheless, the temperature was just right, and it was a fun experience.  Here are the results of my run:
