|Oh, me of the awkward hands...|
We went to SF to run a half marathon--the first half of the San Francisco Marathon to be exact. I enjoy this race because five miles into it we get to run across the Golden Gate Bridge. You'd be surprised at the incline on a bridge--especially when one isn't quite as trained as one should be. The thing about half marathons and 10ks is that you often sign up for the event months in advance and it's easy to delude yourself into thinking that you'll be in peak form by the time the race rolls around. It didn't happen this time. (Or the last either, come to think of it--but I got to wear a tutu in that one and hang with a colorful crowd.)
Since we weren't in peak form we ran very slowly, but eventually crossed the finish line, then celebrated by having a picnic in Grace Cathedral park. I talked my husband into taking some photos. The light is strong and the coat, being made of linen, is a wee bit wrinkled, but I just love wearing it.
I'm wearing the gold chiffon shift I made to go with the coat. As you can see, I lined my coat in polka dot charmeuse. The polka dots match the shift and it makes for a fun outfit
