San Francisco Half Marathon 2011 Completed

Guest Author


I completed my fifth (out of total 8) href="http://www.thesfmarathon.com/the-race/1st-half-marathon/">San
Francisco half-marathon on
the past weekend. No personal record but improved the overall, male,
and age group ranking. Even though the total number of runners were
reported about the same as last year (around 25k) but the overall,
total male, and the age group M30-39 number of first half marathon
runners were certainly down from the previous years as shown in the
table below:

The slower pace is likely due to a hectic Saturday and not enough rest
in the days before the race :( Here are the top 5 runners in each
category:
