We had another disconnected 13/31 this year, with runners starting at different times in some different locations. Does this bode well for its growth? Or is it more of a death knell? Time will tell…
I finished my leg outside of El Sobrante in Northern California. I saw cows, coyotes and maybe a mouse (or perhaps it was a frog). Oh, and humans here and there too.
Given all my affection for Ireland, the hills in Northern California are a pretty good substitute (see beautiful, soggy path above left). I also did my best with one of those panorama pics at the peak of a hill. Pasting it below for kicks.
I got through this one okay, better than some years past. Not sure why, but I’ll take it. Keep those quads strong. See you next year, friends!
