This was Jack's first 10-miler, and he did great! We ran from the Marina to the ballpark and back because I was trying to be nice by avoiding major hills on his first double-digit run, but I didn't even think about the fact that the Embarcadero would be hot (in full sun) and super crowded (like it is any time it's nice on a weekend). Also, I'm kinda dumb, and I stopped my watch at a water stop and then forgot to start it again until later...I mapped it out, and it makes our run 10.25 miles. Oops.
The first half of the run went really well, but the second half was quite a bit harder (the wind really didn't help either!). Next time I think we'll stick to the Presidio because I think the crowds and the heat took just as much out of us as the hills would have! Oh well.
