RunCast 16 – My First UltraMarathon

Just completed my first ultramarathon in Rodeo Beach which is just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County. This was a wonderful pilgrimage for me as Danny Dreyer of ChiRunning lived up there for years and spent countless hours on these very trails which I ran. Kind of the birthplace of ChiRunning.

The ultramarathon was 50K which works out to about 32 miles. It was all on trails and as a chirunner/trailrunner, I was in 7th heaven. I love running on dirt, rocks, leaves, pine needles…God’s surfaces.

It was very hilly and parts were technical so it is a difficult 32 miles. Much harder than a road marathon.

Watch the video to see how I did.

The race was very well organized and certainly the best food I’ve ever had at the rest stations. I highly recommend doing a race with this race company.

Enjoy the video. Its kind of long just like the run was. Pay attention to what Chuck Wilson, experienced ultramarathoner tells me in the middle of the race that enables me to finish the race strong.

Happy New Years

ps I fly off to warmer temperatures (Thailand) for a month Thursday. Take care Beach Runners. I’ll write something from the land of a thousand smiling faces.
