Welcome to the Craig and Laura Dot Com web site. Our site is primarily a way for Laura and I to keep our friends and family up to date with what is going on in our lives. Strangers are welcome to browse around if they wish but not knowing us, they probably won't find the site very exciting. Laura and I live in California, in the heart of Silicon Valley and our families are scattered far and wide from as far away as Sydney Australia, Abu Dabai U.A.E., Edinburgh Scotland and Montreal to as near as Seattle, Kansas City and Florida.

Bay to Breakers 2000

The Race

This year, Laura and I ran in the Bay to Breakers in San Francisco. It is the second oldest and the largest footrace in America and quite possibly the world. Almost 100,000 people ran in the race. It took us half an hour after the race started just to get to the starting line.

The Finish Line

The race is seven and a half miles long and starts at the San Francisco Bay. The race winds through the streets of San Francisco and ends at the breakers (waves) of the Pacific Ocean. After the race there was a huge party with live bands and tons of beer (of course). We are going to run in it again next year.

 

Riding Across The Golden Gate Bridge

Laura and I with our bikes. We parked our car at the ferry terminal in San Francisco and then we rode down the Embarcadero past Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf, through Fort Mason and the Presidio, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and then down into Sausalito. Then we had a great lunch at horizons (and a few beers to boot). We then took the ferry back to San Francisco.

All in all, a great day!
