Is it a race? Is it a party? Is it an excuse to be naked in public? While plenty of people were competing in earnest—and we applaud them—we had our eyes set on the costumes and revelry that make each B2B a memorable one. We think we can officially say that SF does footraces better than everyone else. He still doesn't know what he can turn down for. Follow him on Instagram MeetJakob.

NSFW: Buff to Breakers
As is the custom in recent decades, a handful of runners chose to wear nothing but their race bibs and a smile, with their junk, boobs, and rear ends in full public display. This SF Weekly reporter encountered fewer than two dozen naked runners this year, and the practice seems less in vogue than in previous decades when nudist colonies were still popular. Still, naked die-hards remain in the mix. Many understandably declined to give their names or consent to being photographed with their cash and prizes flopping around.
Growing up in Southern California, I remember a high level of concern my parents seemed to have about my exposure to streaking. In the same way a once-dormant disease can rise up and spread through a local population, our area was apparently experiencing an unexplained outbreak. As I understood it, sometimes when a man and a woman loved each other very, very much, they ran through a parking lot with their clothes off. Or they would run into a park and meet up with other people who loved each other very, very much, who would tear off their pants and run naked through the town until the police made them stop. If I happened to be around when the streakers came, I was to quickly look away.
