Haley Gonzales's thoughts:

This was a great race!! The second half marathon I've run in SF. The best thing about it was the course. We got to run across the Golden Gate Bridge!! The downside of that was we didn't run on the road, it was the side walk. It was a bit congested but it was still amazing. Great views of the Bay! For some reason when I checked out the map of the race (just the map, not the elevation chart) I didn't think it would be that hilly. I was so WRONG! Crazy hills, but what do you expect, the race is in San Francisco. Despite the hills I still ran my second best half marathon - 1:54:39. Other great views were running through Presidio Park. I have to say this is the most beautiful course I have run (so far).
Parking wasn't as bad as I would have thought. We parked in the parking lot at Ghirardelli Square. Although we did get there early so maybe that is why. The beginning of the race even had yoga, if I had known I would have gotten up earlier. The end of the race was nice too, lots of food and drinks to recover with. The chute was pretty small and the ground had some pot holes, and - this is for other runners - DON'T STOP AS SOON AS YOU CROSS THE FINISH!!! Run through because there are a lot of other runners behind you that don't appreciate running into you.
Overall I would recommend this race. Every runner should run a race across the Golden Gate Bridge!
