DAY 0 - Took longer than it should have, but the volunteers finally found my bib and chip (note the discrepancy on the printed label...not noticed until the timing crew investigated why I did not record a chip time at the race)
Point Vicente Lighthouse
Race day schedule
I don't remember this sign...how long has it been here?
Representing Mexico :)
Leo is racing in his Five Fingers. I have not run further than six miles in mine.
Rougly six minutes before the scheduled start of the race and not a single person has lined up.
This year's version of the course starts to the south...IMHO a much better direction. There is nothing quite as depressing as passing within a few feet of the finish line BEFORE having to deal with what seems like an endless incline.
Leo comes back from a quick warm up. Again, where are the rest of the runners?
BAM! There they are! Just a few minutes late.
National anthem...six minutes behind schedule
