"Bay to Breakers"



Hayes Street


This week-end, the 98th annual Bay to Breakers foot race took place again in San Francisco. I didn't have the courage to get up at 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning to bring you my very own pictures of the event, but there are plenty of photographs all over the net by now, so you shouldn't have any difficulty finding them. The pictures on this post are from the San Francisco Chronicle (also click there to see additional photographs and full article).

Ce week-end, la course à pieds annuelle que l'on appelle Bay to Breakers a pris place à San Francisco pour la 98ème fois. Je n'ai pas eu le courage de me lever à 5h et demie du matin le Dimanche pour aller vous chercher des photos de l'évènement, mais il y en a déjà tout plein sur la Toile et vous ne devriez avoir aucune difficulté à les trouver. Les photos de ce billet sont du San Francisco Chronicle (cliquez sur le lien pour voir d'avantages de photos et l'article, en Anglais).



Oh, and of course, what would the Bay to Breakers be without the Bare to Breakers (careful when you click on that website, it launches a very loud sound file.) Anyway, hope you all had a very nice week-end.

Bien entendu, il n'y aurait pas de Bay to Breakers sans les Bare to Breakers (les gens qui font la course tout nus) attention, si vous cliquez sur ce site, il y a du son et ça s'entend très bien, même à 3km de l'ordi. En tout cas, j'espere que vous avez tous passé un bon week-end.

Whoa!

ps Your last post inspired me to put up my own little "impressions of Paris" video on Youtube (edited by my wife). Have a look at it if you have the time or next time you feel homesick.

Merci, Tomate!

"le papa de Christophe".

(A la fois confus et ravi de tant de sollicitude; mais chagriné de voir affichée sur la blogosphère son ignorance coupable de la belle langue anglaise) :) :)

Luggi: your video is GRRRREAT!!! May I re-post it here in a future post (with proper credit, of course)? I love it, thank you so much for doing that!


Pierre: Welcome! Mais ne vous en faites pas, personne ne sais qui vous etes et vous n'etes pas le seul à avoir besoin de sous-titres. (Moi c'est la traduction en Français qui me prends un peu de temps, alors patience :)

Wow! This race drags a huge crowd of participants with "elaborate" costumes too, as far as we can see! ;-)
Thanks for sharing this fun event Tomate.
