    So I’m an easy grader, an A for effort sort of guy — I guess most races are too, since you receive a medal for finishing. This race is tiny (39 in the half) and for charity. I would run it again.

    Let me mention the problem. The course markings were non-existent. I went a half mile off. I have done that before as a result of user error. This was different. I wasn’t the only one. At 4.81 miles, the guy in front of me turned around to talk to me. He wondered if he’d missed the turnaround, because he was doing the 10k, meaning he had overshot by about 1.7 miles. He was pretty funny, because of how surprised he was, and he said, “Oh, F–k.” He was probably late 60s/early 70s, so it was funny that this old guy was swearing (that’s probably some sort of age bias on my part, though it isn’t a negative comment about age, and I’m 52 anyway so not young, but positive, that usually an older fellow is more dignified; he was just shocked and ticked off, but perhaps it was a “you had to be there moment”).

    Anyway, the other thing is for the Bay Area, this is on the one hand flat and on the other hand not the most scenic. It’s okay in terms of what you’re looking at.

    That is all made up for, however, by the two bits of swag. One I didn’t even receive, because I didn’t need it. At the turnaround, they had Hydrapak Speedcups rather than disposable, and you got to keep it! Those are wonderful little silicon cups, coming into use to avoid waste. Then the goodie bag had a one liter Hydrapak collapsible water bottle. I’ve gotten stuff like this before, but not from a name brand.

    I’d run this again. They have other races out there — back to the city is a pain, because of traffic, but that’s life. This one is different because it’s such a small crowd.

    I was sixth from the bottom. Back there, at the end of the field, people are spread out. You can’t always see someone to follow. I’m still working my way back from my health issue. At least it’s 10 half marathons for the year to date (October 12) and 8 shorter races.
