    I ran the Chinatown 10k. I ran a negative split. It is two loops. I was significantly faster the second go-aroind. I was listening to the Good Place television show, which is funny and probably resulted in me being slower. As I went through the Financial District, a woman, probably in her 60s, white, pushing a shopping cart with items other than groceries, i.e., likely homeless or otherwise troubled, was shouting. She was one of those people who shout at nobody specific, but non-stop. It was “Go home, you parasites!” over and over and over. Then it was “Go back to Golden Gate Park. You disrupted the bus service!” Then it was, “I can walk faster than you can run!” But mainly it was “Go homse, you parasites!” I am not sure if this was heckling or racist heckling. (The field for the Chinatown 10k is heavily, but not exclusively, Asian/Asian American, even for the San Francisco Bay Area.)

    For people wondering about the race, it proceeds from Chinatown to the Embarcadero to the Financial District, back to Chinatown, then along a similar but not quite the same route. There are two hills that don’t even count by Bay Area standards. Lots of families, lots of children, and welcoming to all (no need to worry if you aren’t of Chinese background!).
