San Francisco Marathon - Stage 8 of My Journey

My most satisfying run  not because of my finished time and the SFM challenging course, but for the first time I was injury free crossing the finish line.

Time: 5:05:40

My son Time: 3:57:00

For my effort, I received the Finisher Medal, Medal for doing the LA and San Francisco and a Hoodie for doing the 1st half, 2nd Half and Full in consecutive years.

Details to follow:


  1. Those medals look beautiful. I guess now you are a confirmed MM member. Again, my congratulations and a well done.Wishing you all the best.

    1. Thanks for the congrats, Joe! Can hardly wait to wear my MM shirt. SFM boost my confidence to finish under 5hrs.

      Take care and keep on running.

  2. Wonderful! Super great news! MM here you come!

    Congrats on mastering the training/racing workload for all this time. It's not easy is it? But you did it. DONE.

    You scored a ton of bling too. 8)

    1. Thanks Paul! Really felt good crossing the finish line injury free. The course was .300 farther. It's a forever mile for me from 26 to 26.2(turn out to be 26.5) as I gave all I got to look good at the finish line. Will apply for the MM membership after Long Beach.

      Take care and good luck on your next race.

  3. Way to go Arthur! You are amazing and an inspiring athlete.
