2016 Oakland Marathon / Half Marathon Race Report
"I spent the first two miles or so playing frogger to try to get out of the 11:00-12:00/mile zone"
Race Report: Oakland Marathon 2018
"I'd never run the full, which had a reputation for being both pretty and hilly, which I thought might be fun and also good training for Boston and Big Sur."
