Survival Dash 8.18.12 race notes

I went out to take pictures for the Survival Dash race by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco today.  It was a small 10k race put on by Leila and her crew.  I love the small races because you get to be with the people who are racing and hosting the race.  We had people from all over the place joining us for today’s race.   It was fun hearing people talk about their goals for the race.  Some people planned on running the whole time, without stopping.  Other people wanted to win.  A common goal was to break a 10 minute per mile pace.

When you have a race with less than 100 people, there are no fancy amenities.  You have Ted taking pictures and posting them on Picasa.  You have Leila running the show and designating a volunteer to shout the ready, set, go command.  A lot of the snacks are made by the volunteers.  Who can say no to homemade brownies?  They also had beer, leis and grass skirts.

The pictures can be found here.  They are in two folders and posted in the order taken with edited pictures appearing at random.
