I was looking for a soft surface run that would not be a mud pile after the recent rains and the Baylands came to mind. In addition, I wanted a flatter run so the Baylands seem to fit the bill. Indeed, there was little mud at the Baylands and essentially zero elevation gain. The run was exactly 60 minutes with about 9.5 miles covered. Fortunately, the heavy mist that was occurring at Stanford all afternoon was not a factor next to the bay and there was even a few peaks of blue sky.
