On your marks…


Every May, there’s a serious 1012-kilometer race held in San Francisco, starting downtown and heading over the middle of the city (and up some serious hills) to end at Ocean Beach. Serious runners from from around the world to compete…

…and nobody pays a damn bit of attention to them, because after the runners come the hundreds and hundreds of people in homemade costumes (or no clothes at all), pulling floats, kegs and portable tiki bars, setting up impromptou profesisonal wrestling matches, and generally indulging in the sort of semi-organized silliness that San Francisco is famous for.

I hear somebody won the race. I have no idea who it was.
