Ready For San Francisco Marathon

4 - days to San Francisco Marathon
24 - weeks of Training (including this one)
2 - weeks of Taper Down (including this one)
656 - miles of Running (excluding this week, once again jMaki helped me calculate the total mileage)
6 - long runs
4 - Personal Records (PG&E, PG&E again, 7-mile, PG&E yet again)
4 - fellow runners from Family & Friends

And I'm ready.

For friends who'd like to cheer me up in person, here is some information:


For fellow runners, wish you all good luck and here are few references:

  • Packets can be picked at One Market Plaza on July 27th (11am-6pm) or 28th (9am-5pm) and find your bib# here. Race shirt is available at the Expo after packet pickup (Justin Herman Plaza).
  • Full Marathon Pace Groups are available with a finish time from varying from 3hr to 5hr 30 min. First Half and Second Half pace groups are available as well.
  • Pace Calculator - This tool calculates split times for Aid stations along the marathon course based on a desired finish time. It accounts for uphill and downhill, as well as increased fatigue that might be expected later in the race, by applying different “weights” to each section. A more generic version of this tool is available at Marathon Pace Band.

And for those whose wishes are always with me and will not be able to participate in person:

  • Live results will be available here and you'll hear my story afterwards on this blog and whenever we meet :)

Wish me luck, my goal is to finish the marathon in less than 4 hours.

Keep it up! And wish you all the best for your second marathon. I wish we could join you again as we did last time. Also, thanks for the math practice below ;-)
