Nevertheless they told me that they wanted me to offer a 5% discount to readers of Half-Fast. However, since I assumed that I wouldn’t be the only blog making this offer and since I wanted to be better than all the other blogs making such an offer I used a combination of charm, smooth talk and my awesomely superior negotiating skills to get you a bigger discount, which is why if you use the Half-Fast discount code below you can get a 5% discount. I like to think that it’s a 5.00001% discount that rounds down to 5% despite the emphatic “no” I received when I floated the idea.
The Bay to Breakers 12K race, like much of San Francisco, is full of wacky traditions. One example being the “salmon” group, who don fish-like hats and run upstream from the finish to the start. Many other racers also dress in costumes ranging from comical to nothing but body paint. (By the way, where are we on getting the guy that invented body paint a Nobel Prize? He totally deserves it.) One guy even ran it last year dressed like this. (That link is safe for work, but not safe for lunchtime viewing.) Before you go Googling images from the Bay to Breakers from previous years you’re going to want to make sure that your safe search is turned on because if you don’t you’re going to get a visit from your IT guy and maybe from corporate security. Trust me it’s not easy to explain why you were viewing pictures of hoo hoos and people dressed as hoo hoos.
So, if you’re interested in participating in this block party of a race and you want a 5% discount then follow the steps outlined below.
