Diversity was the name of the game Sunday at the Fifth Annual Oakland Running Festival. Family and friends helped cheer on participants of all ages. Runners totaled 9,678 including the full marathon, half marathon, team relay, 5K plus two Fun Runs for kids under 7 or 8 to 12. More than 34 states and eight countries were represented. However, the big winner was a local young man who lives in Temescal. Jesse Cherry was among 905 athletes in the full marathon. He set a new race record of 2:25:14 as he ran by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf at the finish line. My son Rob Nachtwey finished fourth overall and first in his age division. His friend Patrick Madigan finished under 3 hours for the first time.

GOOD STUFF IN YOUR GARBAGE?

We try our best to recycle. But surveys show there’s still a lot of waste.  In Alameda County 45% (by weight) of items found in garbage could be recycled or composted. Remember — food scraps and food-soiled paper go in green bins! Please keep separate green bins and garbage cans. www.stopwaste.org/benchmark

END-of-YEAR REAL ESTATE ROUND-UP

2014 was a very good year for Sellers in the East Bay. Not so great for Buyers.

For me, career-wise, it was my best year ever since becoming a realtor in 1986.

A new study shows that asking prices in Oakland climbed 13.4% in the past year. This increase ranked Oakland the fourth highest in the nation.
