So this is Day 1’s route. It begins at The Walt Disney Museum, in the Presidio of San Francisco, and takes me south through Daly City, to Pacifica. Then the route continues to Moss Beach and ends at Half Moon Bay. Day 1 will look a lot like the original one planned out for the 2015 long distance run, with the only changes being some of the twists and turns that will get me through Daly City – I want to ensure that I took the most direct North – South route possible this time around. I also need to ensure that I cover more mileage over the first few days of this endurance run than I did the last time. Your legs feel best over the first few days…and then things get progressively tougher as the miles begin to add up.
Prepping for an effort like this will take 15-16 months. There are tons of things to consider, and the simple act of mapping out the various lefts and rights is a key function.
