The “Shortcut”

Today I’d like to share with you all something funny that happened to me this morning as I ran before work.

I started my run leaving work and heading to AT&T Park, from there I started up the Embarcadero running underneath the Bay Bridge, past The Ferry Building and Pier 39.

It’s a really nice run but it has started to get a little tedious. Near the 3 mile mark I started thinking I might be running out of time to run back along the water so I decided to take a “shortcut” through North Beach and Chinatown.

The improvised route only cut about 1/4 of a mile off of my entire run and added some hills to it so it didn’t turn out to be much of a shortcut although I laughed when I saw my final distance on my phone.

The hill on powell wasn’t super steep by San Francisco standards but after three miles it had me cursing a little under my breath – the best part of the run was how good I felt doing it.

If I hadn’t needed to go to work by 9:30 I might have added another two miles to the thing because it was just one of those days you feel really REALLY good out there moving.

It’s so awesome to look back on how far we’ve come in (almost) one year! I am really proud of both of us.
