Trail Run at Lake Chabot

Tony and I just returned from the trail run at Lake Chabot in the San Francisco Bay Area. We entered the 20 K. and followed the orange ribbons For our event, there was 1455 feet of elevation gain.

I was pleased with the Bay Area weather-it didn't rain. The temperature at the start was likely in the upper 40s. There was no rain. The trail was muddy in  part but overall not too bad. The week prior in Cool was cold and rainy. It was super to see the blue sky and sun again. I came in first in my age division about 10 minutes behind Tony who was the oldest in his age division .

Overall, I had a good race and more importantly felt terrific at the finish line . I did not hurt nor did I have any issues with my Achilles. I haven't felt this good after a race in years. I'm going to re-evaluate and get clear on what races I want to run. Happy running the trails.
