Sasquatch Scramble

In the 1970's Sasquatch or Bigfoot was everywhere, from the Bionic Man to
In Search Of.
Throw in some random documentaries and no wonder my knucklehead friends and
I would search the woods behind Marlton for Bigfoot. Looking back, I am
glad we did not encounter Bigfoot.
Went to Redwood Regional Park in Oakland on an early Saturday Morning.
Whenever I go to the East Bay when there is not much traffic I think, why
does Marcus not take his show on the road to the East Bay on a more
frequent basis but then they are the days I am stick in the car for hours
and then I know why I rarely go beyond San Francisco or Daly City.
But on this morning there was no challenge to make it to the East Bay and I
got a great parking spot.

Since I re-started running in 2007 I have gone on about 1450 runs. Some
great, some terrible but this was easily one of the most challenging, right
up along with my first half marathon in 2007 and I wisely chose to run the
10K.
Part of me is happy that I did not wreck myself doing a half but then
again, being able to said I did a trail half marathon.

Trail running is a completely different set of potatoes than running along
the Embarcadero dodging funnel cake eating Cleveland Brown fans.

Was told by the organizers that from mile 1 to 2.5 would be challenging.
Like me telling someone, the Star Wars Holiday Special is really bad, they
were correct. They were hills, not like the crest of the Fort Mason Hill
but rather a dust filled up and up like we were in the Lord of the Rings.

Was not too proud to walk up some of these inclines.

Even the downhills were steep enough that it was difficult to go full
speed.
