San Francisco Holds ‘Resolution Dash’

Runners penned their goals before the start of the annual 5K.

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park was the place to commit to change last weekend. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, runners lined up at the 3rd annual Resolution Dash, a 5K event.

Race organizers encouraged participants to pen their 2014 resolutions before heading out on the course.

Some committed to eating less bacon, while others wrote things like “be nicer to my husband.”

Approximately 175 runners took part in the race, including the 11 members of the Hubele family visiting from Dallas.

“Last year, we did a race in Indio, near Palm Springs,” said Susan Hubele, who was there with her husband and other family members. “We’re one of those functional families. We all get along.”

Christian Gravel of British Columbia was the overall winner, clocking 16 minutes and 59 seconds, while Berkeley’s Mary Harrington won the women’s division in 21:33.

But the race wasn’t all about speedy times. Organizers hired a man who dressed as a robot and danced to disco tunes.
