2013 Wipro San Francisco Marathon

The San Francisco Marathon is a loop course. The race starts and finishes on the Embarcadero (near the Ferry Building), traversing San Francisco. The Full Marathon runs through Fisherman’s Wharf, the Marina, across the Golden Gate Bridge (and back!), through the Presidio and into Golden Gate Park. After a tour of Golden Gate Park, the course goes through the famous Haight Street and through the Mission, Potrero and Mission Bay Districts, passing behind AT&T Park then under the Bay Bridge to the Finish Line.

Kai Stance

Your physical therapist Arleen’s first try doing Kaibo-ten-no kata and she took 2nd against those with sai’s and bo’s. Funny thing was that she had just started to practice her kaibo kata in the same morning of the competition! In the action photo, Arleen is throwing a jab followed by immediately delivering a punch. She was penalized for throwing too hard of a head kick somewhere in that fight and still won Gold. Her son Kai, in a cat stance, performed Matsukaze kata and took 2nd place. He also took 1st place in fighting and 3rd place in weapons. Kai, 7 y/o, and buddy from the dojo, makes Kai work harder during practices. They are constantly upping the ante! In the end, Arleen made a friend after this whole ordeal!

Check out Kai competing in kata against another doing the same kata, which is unbelievable as you will usually have someone else in the ring doing another kata.

Run For Your Lives!

Run For Your Lives is the world’s first interactive zombie-infested 5k obstacle race experience.  But you’re not just running against the clock-you’re running from brain-hungry zombies.  Each participant is given a flag belt, just like the ones used in flag football.  The flags represent your health, and you have 3 chances to make it out alive or come up dead!  The zombies want to take your flag and maybe eat your brains. 

Arleen and Sara from the ErgoSolutions PT team ran and survived the Zombie Apocalypse.  Here are some pictures to prove it!
