20K Rodeo Beach trail run in 1.28

Had a longer stopover at SFO today. Decided to challenge the weather and rode up to Marin for a 20K trail run. Must have been one of the toughest running races I’ve ever done. Partly because of poor training background but more importantly because of heavy rain & wind. Visibility was maximum 100 meters over the course. At some points just 20 meters or so and I had to hold on to the cap so it didn’t fly away. Also the course is quite tough with 700m total vertical ascend. When I saw a sign saying 3.4 miles or 5.8km to Rodeo Beach I felt like being betrayed. Legs were all done and I was ready to speed down. Somehow I could however carry on the remainder of the course which was either downhill or flat. Results here.
