Grizzly Peak Half in 1.41.14

It was muddy out there …

I would have been shocked to see that time after half marathon finish unless it was Grizzly Peak Trail Run in Tilden Park. Total climb about 900m, purchase including extremely steep paths I had to occasionally walk. I’ve never done a harder route. It was like orienteering but without any controls or breaks to read the map. It didn’t help that competition was tough as well. Jack Wallace who came second left me far behind in downhills. I finally passed him when the final major uphill started at around 15K.

Right after the run I drove to the airport and flew over the Atlantic. My legs are aching at the moment in Amsterdam.
