Half Moon Bay -> Pescadero.
First run alone for Richard as he leaves Half Moon Bay. Richard is solid and feels good this morning. He relies heavily on his Hammer Nutrition bars and carries a Hammer powder shake with him as he runs. Hammer should be sponsoring him! He relies on their products! He only stops at the van once or twice to refuel with a powder shake and/or water. Its interesting that he hardly sweats! On this morning run he saw 2 dead snakes on the side of the road.
Pescadero -> Greyhound Rock.
This 15 mile stretch was flatter with only a couple hills. Richard managed to climb over them. He ran along the gorgeous Santa Cruz cliffs over looking the ocean.
This is what he had to say to his supporters in the middle of his run:
