I’ve seen many cool things this week and I’ve met a lot of cool people. But the VMworld Golden Gate Bridge Run was definitely the best thing ever. We had roughly 200 people who joined us and everyone had so much fun. The view was amazing, almost a clear blue sky.
Five weeks ago I never expected that a single tweet between @jasonboche and myself would end up in an event like this. Imagine just a couple of guys talking about running during VMworld and ending up with 200 people running the Golden Gate Bridge with multiple sponsors who committed to this on twitter. That’s not something that happens every day! Thanks Stephen Herrod, Chad Sakac, Vaughn Stewart and last but not least David Davis for sponsoring the run.
Of course thanks also goes out to my VMware colleagues Craig Williams, Scott Drummonds and Timothy Stephan for stepping up to the plate and making this happen.
If anyone made pictures during the run please share them and drop a link in the comments section of my blog.
Thanks everyone for participating! And for those who missed out, we know it was all very last minute but we already spoke about making this an annual event and not only in San Francisco also Copenhagen!
Here are some pictures, including fun run pics:
Here’s a video of the run:

I was able to snap this pic of you all boarding the bus to the run – http://www.twitpic.com/g18yd

Here are a couple of videos that I posted on my blog of the Golden Gate run:
Up until I saw Duncan’s post, I wasn’t at all disappointed about not going to VMworld this year. Nice work on setting up a run… wish I could have joined everyone.
Great, I wish being there… Next year I’ll come for sure…
