There are some big hills east of Berkeley! The climbs were tough but the views from the top were worth it. Four out of six trail halfs in the bag!
Running up and down the green hills of Del Valle Park. 13.1 miles, 2,300 feet of climbing, halfway to my goal.
It was a beautiful, chilly day in the redwoods above Saratoga. Thirteen miles, 3100 feet of climbing, and ice cream afterward.
Not my first trail half marathon, but probably the most difficult. And yeah, I signed up for another one...
After a seven year break from triathlons – I have been mainly running trail races like the Ragnar Trail Tahoe [https://www.runragnar.com/event-detail/trail/tahoe_ca] – I registered for the Santa Cruz Triathlon [https://www.santacruztriathlon.org/] earlier this year. The race was this morning, and I'm very happy
