San Francisco Marathon 7.26.09 -Not as hilly as the Nike marathon but don't be like me and run it injured. My ITB injury was extremely painful on the rolling hills. The separation of the half marathoners from the marathoners was wonderful. Great job! The Golden Gate Bridge run was INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend this one.
