Nike Women's (Half) Marathon weekend in San Francisco. Pre-race activities include the pre-race expo in Union Square, xiao long bao at Shanghai House (just okay), the tiniest hotel room I've had in a while (at The Mosser), and of course, visiting family and the rabbits!
The pre-race expo was quite an experience, by far the most overly packed, intensely commercialized pre-race expo I've been to. Most focus on running shops and other running events, this one instead had Verizon, Paul Mitchell (free makeovers!), and Whole Foods. Felt more like a circus or a zoo.
