Half Marathon Training Run.

The 2 hour, 57 minute time was a bit weak, but the conditions weren't the best either. The wind was blowing hard over Mission Peak which made the footing a little more tricky than usual for running over the rocks near the summit. I am preparing for a 50 mile trail run which is almost 2 marathons end-to-end, except for the minor detail of 8,800 feet of elevation gain. Today's route took me from Fremont to about 1.25 miles short of Sunol Park. This looks to be about 13.5 miles with 3,500 feet of climbing. The picture below is of the second climb up Mission Peak from the back side. There is still a month to prepare and the mileage will need to be extended considerably.
