Now it’s time for some good news! Last week was a tough one, and I briefly recapped the events of a house fire in my last post. But life is moving forward, and I am happy to announce that I was selected as an Ambassador for the Berkeley Half Marathon!
The Berkeley Half is the sister race to the San Francisco Marathon. The race features a half marathon, 10K and 5K, and provides a running tour of Berkeley, including the UC Berkeley campus! I am very honored to continue to represent Bay Area running, and look forward to this new ambassadorship. It looks like there will be a lot of great opportunities to connect with local runners, whether it be hosting a fun run, or working an in-store event.
Just before I was selected for Berkeley, I attended one last event as a San Francisco Marathon ambassador, The Giant Race on August 23rd. The San Francisco Giant’s themed race features a half marathon, 10K and 5K, and all distances start and finish at AT&T Park.
I worked at a table passing out medals for the San Francisco Originals Runs Series. Medals were given to runners who participated in 3 running events this year: Bay 2 Breakers, The San Francisco Marathon and the Giant Race.
It was a simple task, but it was great fun presenting medals to the proud and excited runners. Even though I was not racing, I really loved being around the positive energy of the running community!
