Yolanda and I rode BART over. We had to leave around 6:00 a.m. The first corral was scheduled to release at 7:00 a.m. We were scheduled to start by 7:45-8:00 a.m. We got off at our stop, walked up the stairs and basically walked straight into our corral, around the corner, over the start line and started the race at 7:30 a.m. No waiting.
