Hitch hike home from Oakland
Reunion with Soulmate (who’s now officially imprisoned after his last escape attempt)
Official welcome dog mauling, and ceremonial shot of bourbon
Goodnight licks from all animals in the house (including Brent, depending on number of welcome shots)

8:00 am Awake to a bright and glorious day in humidity-free San Francisco! (see weather for the week below)
Run at Crissy Field (on the beach) or Golden Gate Park
*July 1 is Brent’s official “back in the game 20 minute run, if you want to use that as a warm-up, Fool…and pity him*
Breakfast at Rose’s or Kate’s Kitchen (depending on running venue)
*The Barbie will be available to you all morning should you need it*
12:00-1:00 Brent and I both wrap up work and the long weekend begins!
2:00-5:00 Official City tour, culminating in beverages at Top of the Mark (fog pending)
