of my sojourn to Silicon Valley:
Finding a 30k trail race (Chabot Red Tail Trail Run) that synced up completely with my training plan (because I’m good at math and the metric system and know that 30k=18 miles).
Completing the 30k staying true to my training strategy (walk 1 min after running each mile, power hiking the steep uphills)
No bonking! Good fueling!
Finish time: 4:10:27
Forgetting the cardinal rule of pronouncing unknown place names (rule: always go with French). Lake Chabot is not pronounced Cha-But. It’s pronounced Sha-beau.
Not reading the elevation chart before racing.
Some things should just not be knit. Ever.
