Tips for the US Half Marathon This Weekend

It's the US Half Marathon this Sunday, a 13.1-mile course that begins in Aquatic Park, crosses the Golden Gate Bridge and winds its way back through the Presidio to the starting point (check out an interactive course map here). 5,000 people have entered, and the times to beat are 1:08:20 for men (Fernando Cabada of Fresno, CA in 2007) and 1:18:58 for women (Jane Kibii of Kenya in 2007). Intense. But even if you're not out for a record-breaker, the course, one of the most picturesque in the country, can be challenging.
