What goes up must come down.
And at the starting line of Sunday morning’s Bay to Breakers race, the tortillas went up, then came down, landing first on heads before they were cast aside onto the street.
As the last of the runners left the starting line, they left behind the unfulfilled promise of ever becoming a burrito.
Hundreds of the formerly edible disks, some broken, littered the intersection of Howard and Main streets. A scene of culinary devastation amid the detritus of other debris: inflatable beach balls, discarded sweat pants and half-filled water bottles.
