Race Reports for Oakland Running Festival


Oakland Running Festival 13.1 Recap - Mar 23, 2016

I ran the Oakland Half in 2011 and surprisingly ran what remains my 3rd fastest half marathon ever. It was surprising for a number of reasons, the least of all not being that the course was not exactly forgiving. It was not hard, per se, it just wasn't what one would expect to run fast on. But that is why we toe the line as we never know what race day will bring. On this race day, however, I had a fairly good idea roughly where I was going to run. Coming back from the flu there would be no such heroics or personal bests set on this day. But I felt I had done well enough in my recovery to run perhaps in the 1:27-1:28 range.
