See Jane Run Alameda 2012

See Jane Run was back in town for their annual half marathon through the streets of Alameda.  SJR is a fun racing series for women.  The race begins at Washington Park up by Crab Cove.  It is a great place to start a race but there is not a lot of parking in the immediate area which causes a lot of people to scramble to the start line.  If the race gets much bigger, they may have to use a shuttle service for parking.

Assuming you get to the race early, there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained before the race starts.  The have dancing, aerobics and stretching before the race starts.  The start line is a little narrow so the people who plan on placing near the top of the race have to squeeze up to the front.  Outside of the first two rows, everyone seems more interested in having fun the setting a personal record.

See Jane Run is a local sports store for women with three bay area locations and one in Boise Idaho.  They support Girls Inc. of Alameda and donate a portion of every entry to the breast cancer fund.

If you run a half marathon right by our street, someone from Alameda Runners is going to show up with a camera.  We took a lot of pictures today.  They can be found here.

    That looks fun! Seeing as how Alameda is relatively flat, I’m going to have to try that one day!
