East Bay Sunday: two races in a row, Doors back in SF

I’m in San Francisco for a few days. Will participate in SDforum and Open Source Business Conference. Anyway, yesterday I took BART to East Bay to participate in two races.

First 10K in Oakland, “4th Sunday race”, organized by a local club. The route was two laps around Lake Merritt. My time was 34.35 with 17.12/17.23 splits. The first mile was 10 secs quicker than the rest. There was some headwind and one construction zone gave the course perhaps 10 secs extra for each lap. A strong run overall.

Just forty minutes and another BART ride later I started a “12K” street orienteering from Fleet Feet in North Berkeley. An excellent route up and down Berkeley Hills. Took me a little over an hour to complete. Might be that I ran a bit more than 12K.

Together with runs in & out I think this was pretty close to a 30K Sunday!

The night ended in a Doors concert at the Fillmore:

This morning legs were rather good compared to what I did the day before. Ran just a mile in the morning around Nob Hill where I’m staying. Will probably return for more later… the weather looks good, and SF’s hilly streets are simply attractive for running.
