It was a great run through San Francisco, along the Embarcadaro, the Piers, Fisherman's Wharf and to the Golden Gate Bridge approach. 8 miles out was a little more than I had anticipated and there was no way I was doing a 16 mile out-and-back. But I couldn't stop.
Something compelled me over that bridge... At one point I actually said aloud to myself:
"Oh to hell with it. You'll figure out how to get back to the hotel. Just go for it."
The views were amazing. I'm very glad I kept going.
Here's my route. I ran over the bridge and back but then took a taxi back to the hotel.
These photos don't do it justice but...
