Robert Rhodes SF Bay Area Trailrunning Exercise, and running in particular, are my passions. It is in these two things that I find peace, happiness and an overall sense of well-being. As curious as it sounds, I truly believe that they bring me to a deep connection with my own spirituality. Somewhere in 2001, while living in Marin, CA I discovered the wonders of the Marin Headlands and the endless trail systems that overlook the breathtaking views of the California coast. I had far-off glances of Pt. Reyes, the Farallon Islands, Ocean Beach, the cold blue waters of the Pacific and the ever engaging San Francisco cityscape. In the distant background, the high peaks of Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Diablo and Mt. St. Helena, surged skyward. I needed more. Just south of San Francisco, above the town of Woodside, I found myself exploring the Santa Cruz Mountains. It was here that my love for the sport of trailrunning came alive. Lush, dark, damp and silent redwood forests, superior trails, and some dangerous wildlife took me to a place I imagine as being as close as I will ever get to the days when man first stood upright and found himself running! Soon what started out as my daily meditation turned into a new endeavor. I created BayTrailrunners for the people of the world who share my passion for the outdoors and the sport of trailrunning. If you are the type of person that revels in dirt, trees, rock, water, air and sweat, I welcome you.
