Fun Run in the Bay City: Presidio 10

I keep encouraging you all who are interested in competitive running to get started with a 5K but you also may want to try a fun run.

The Presidio 10 is a great fun run in the Bay Area that benefits The Guardsmen and The Ashyln Dyer Foundation. This family oriented run will take place on April 1, 2007 in the Presidio of San Francisco. You can choose to either run a 10 mile course or a 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) course. Both of the courses are incredibly scenic and will start and finish at Crissy Field and go over and back on the Golden Gate Bridge. Like any competitive race there will be aid stations, awards for age divisions and even a band providing entertainment at the finish line.

This is a great way to get your feet wet with running courses. I encourage you to run as much as you possibly can and when you get tired, there is no shame in walking. This race is the perfect way to test your limits and start preparing for the racing year -- Who knows, maybe you'll run the 6.2 miles without stopping! For more information and to register, visit the Presidio 10 site.
