About 1,300 individuals have thrown themselves from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge since it opened in 1937; I'm just suggesting you run across it.
If you can make it to San Francisco, crossing the world famous 1.7 mile-long span which links San Francisco with Marin County is a must for any runner, and on my list of the "100 Things all Runners Should do Before they die" as featured in my book.
This year it's even more special, because if you do the math, you'll realize the Golden Gate Bridge is celebrating its 75th anniversary (this month to be exact).
The bridge attracts about nine million people annually from around the world, but many don’t realize that the actual “golden gate” is the name for the entrance to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean.
The bridge's orange vermillion color is technically known as “International Orange.” A good paint store should be able to mix a gallon of PMS code 173 to cover your bedroom walls as a lasting reminder of your bridge crossing.
Without a doubt, that run will be one of the highlights of your running career.
