    I ran the U.S. Half this day last year (without training–oops!), and the weather couldn’t have been more different. Perfectly sunny, crystal blue skies and about 75 blissful degrees. I normally don’t sweat much during the majority of my runs in SF, but that one, I was dripping!

    Can’t believe you did such a long run in such terrible conditions. Kudos!

    I’m not a huge fan of Chineese food either… But it’s still fun to try new things πŸ˜€ it sounds like you had such a great weekend!! Have a safe flight home!

    Great end to a great weekend! I’ve decided my reward if I make my weight loss goal is going to be going to Foodbuzz next year!!!

    I was in that half marathon and guess what??

    I totally saw you!! Truth!

    I would have stopped to say hi except I was in the middle of the half marathon and I’m a total stranger, but it was very cool for me to see you running in the opposite direction in the middle of my race!

    Looks like an awesome and soggy run! I love running in the rain; it makes me feel like I’m 7 years old again. πŸ™‚

    Glad you had a great weekend!

    Looks like you had a great trip! Nice job on the 16 miles in the rain – I’ll run in the rain but I have never gone that far. You are such a trooper! This makes me want to go to SF so much.

    Seeing that precious little girl makes me so excited to greet my little man in just another couple of months. And I have to say…I bet she REALLY appreciated those treats you brought. Food always sounds good to a nursing mom. πŸ˜€

    Your weekend looks amazing! The food looks out of this world! I’ve never had dim sum before. It looks like something to experience at least once. πŸ™‚

    I was seriously impressed when you came downstairs yesterday and said you ran 16 miles…in the rain. Huge props for peeling yourself out of bed!!

    I kept meaning to make it to Tartine but never did- hopefully it was as good as everyone says!

    Wow, you are a trooper re: 16 miles in the rain.

    I don’t eat Chinese food (except chicken fried rice), but I really like exploring Chinatowns in other cities – they always have so much personality!

    Good for you for getting your run in. I’m definitely not a rainy-weather runner either but having someone waiting there for you definitely makes you more accountable. Not sure I would have been able to narrow down those dessert choices! Glad you had a great time in San Francisco πŸ™‚

    I was running the half-marathon and I totally saw you running the other direction! I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks and I thought I recognized you. I would have said hi but I was going up the big hill by the GG bridge. Glad you enjoyed our city!

    You are SUCH a trooper to run in the rain, especially 16 miles! I’m glad the oatmeal made you feel better – I hate that lightheaded feeling I get when I don’t eat enough after intense exercise. Oatmeal always makes me feel better no matter what the reason πŸ™‚ Have a safe flight!

    Mannn I am so impressed. I should be a veteran rain-runner (being that I’m from upstate NY), but I hate it. I once ran a 20 mile-training run on the treadmill to avoid running outside in the rain. In my defense, it was freezing rain, so the conditions outside were kind of hazardous. πŸ™‚

    What an awesome trip! I hope you had a wonderful time.

    Bummer about the bridge but it looks like you still had a great run! I ran over my first bridge this weekend (the Main Street Bridge in Jacksonville). It was DIFFICULT but very fulfilling. πŸ™‚

    Looks like you have had an amazing trip! I love your pictures too! It makes me feel like I was (almost) there! πŸ™‚

    I lived near San Fran for over a year and never found Chinese food that I liked – I think they survive on tourists & not repeat business. A lot of the dim sum stuff freaked me out too, like chicken claws?!? I’d rather go to a Thai or Indian or Japanese restaurant πŸ™‚ Also haven’t had a lot of good Chinese in Orlando (unless you count Pei Wei lol)

    I’m all for rain but I don’t think I could run in it. I’m just starting out running and can’t even run a straight 2 miles yet, let alone 16….hopefully one day! I’m also really jealous of your trip to San Fran, that’s always been my dream city to live in.

    The only really amazing Chinese food I’ve ever had was in the Netherlands. Go figure! It was run by Chinese people FOR Chinese people and nothing like the saucy Americanized version available here though.

    That is pretty much the route a ran for my marathon (plus a few miles!) and in the rain, so I feel for you! Awesome that you did it. =)

    Hey, I ran in that half-marathon yesterday! :o) It was the US-Half. Too bad you two weren’t signed up! There was actually a groupon for it for $40 not too long ago that I tweeted about with the #foodbuzz tag. (Really nice tech shirt, medal, metal water bottle etc… not bad $!)

    What a miserable day for it. Ended up covered in mud. Wish I could have your attitude on the weather. The bridge wasn’t that great anyway. It was so foggy you couldn’t even see the water below and the cars in the ran practically made it too noisy to even talk to the person running next to you. Had a much better experience running it on the roadbed during the SF Marathon last July. Glad you enjoyed your time out here πŸ™‚

    You’re a trooper! Going for a long run like that before a long flight. I tried that once and woke up halfway through a red eye and i was so dehydrated it hurt to open my eyes they were so dry.

    “The dull experience of China Town?!!!!” I loveeeeee china town! But, I have to agree- chinese food (albeit vegetable hom baos) isn’t that great and yes the dim sum ladies are always pushing food on you, ha!

    Looks like you had a great time Meghann! What a beautiful little baby, so crazy/cool to see her after knowing Beth b/f the pregnancy!

    I love PF Changs chinese food and since having that I really can’t do the local take out options that we have around my small town. Also, it’s definitely a perk to have runner friends all over the country to do your long runs with. It would have been hard for anyone to get out of bed based on your pictures of the weather!

    yay!!!! You are such a sweetie pie! At least I had ONE good idea this weekend! I am so sorry about the dim sum- I remember loving it last time even though I am not a big fan of Chinese food either.

    How is it that we took the same photos with similar cameras and mine are so much darker and some are much less in focus than yours? What setting did you use for the Tartine shots?

    Looks like so much fun! Even the running in the rain. I’ve actually come to enjoy running in the rain since rain is pretty rare here. If we get moisture it usually comes in the form of snow or not at all.

    I think I saw you getting out of the elevator after a run early one morning at the Drake. I almost said something but we both seemed determined in our paths. I am glad you had a great trip. GREG
