Being an out-of-towner, and only in the area for a few days for work, I had no idea what to expect from this course. I had done another Brazen race the last time i was in the Bay Area for work, so I was pretty confident that this would be a well run event. I basically signed up because 1) I was in the area and 2) The timing would allow me to race and then get to my work event later in the day. 3) This race seemed way hard.

Now, coming from New England, I am no stranger to hills and pride myself on doing things just because they are really hard. This race did not disappoint. Awesome scenery? Check. Hundred of feet of elevation gain? Check. Good race support? Check. Friendly participants? Check.

I also had the really fun experience of chatting with a woman whose husband attended college in my hometown. We ended up running together for a while, pacing each other.

I would totally do this race again.

I was in town for work, and decided to check out this race. I didn’t really know anything about it prior to running, but I was seduced by the super cool finisher medal. (Spoiler: It’s a TRAIN!!!) I figured I had enough time to run the 10k and then get to my work event later that afternoon, and it would be a fun way to spend the morning.

I have to say, i really enjoy racing and find that it’s a great way to meet people and feel less alone when travelling by myself. I chatted with a couple of nice ladies at the start, one of whom was running her first 10k. Everyone was super friendly, the course was nice and had a great out-and-back section where I was able to cheer on my new friends as we passed each other.

I felt pretty good at this race and only wished I’d had enough time to run the half marathon. Maybe next time!
