408K Recap

I ran this for the bling! 100% for the bling (and the t-shirt! it’s pretty cool, I should have taken a pic before I tossed it into the dirty laundry bin… oops) This was one of the races that I REALLY didn’t want to miss out on the bling, I had such race FOMO/Envy last year when I saw the awesome medals all over my social feeds and I needed to get my hands on one of them.

My run was uneventful, it was a cool early morning, empty streets just the way I like them, not too hot, not too cold, not raining or snowing and really overall a great training run! Maybe I should have paid more attention, snapped a few photos but I didn’t…probably because for one of the first times in a long time I was just enjoying the run and trying  not thinking too much about anything.

One day I hope to make it to one of these awesome races in person, currently I may not be able to run the bay in the bay but I can (and you can too) run the bay from where ever you are, to run the bay is a state of mind… kinda 😉 The next race in the series is on July 10th – you can register for it (the Across the Bay 12k & 415k) HERE (remember remote option if you don’t want to miss out on the bling and can’t make it for race day) and October’s Let’s Go 510 HERE 

Do you run for the bling? sometimes? no times? every time?

    LOVED this race! Are you running all three? I'm one of the Ambassadors, and this is my first year. (I really love the "foot" on the medal so it stands up by itself.) Come on out and run SF in person!

    I'm so glad you're running the Bay from where you are! This year's 408K medal is the first I ever got with a "foot," how about you? Here's to July's Across the Bay. ::fist bump::

      I've never even seen a medal with a foot before, super awesome feature ;)

    Congrats on your race - that's a really cute medal so I can see why you wanted to do the race to earn it :) I've picked races before based on the bling - I did an entire winter race series once just so I could earn the gigantic medal at the end - the prize for running all of the races!
