Bay to Breakers

Bay to Breakers is a 7.5 mile race. The runners start on one side of San Francisco, by the bay, and finish down the hill from our house, by the breakers. The runners have lots of fun dressing up. Some don't dress. And some take it very seriously. Gilbert Okari from Kenya (above center) won the race in 34 minutes and 20 seconds. He'll take home $37,000 in prize money. The people shown here were some of the first to finish, but they couldn't keep up with Gilbert.
