Episode 6 covers, but is certainly not limited to:

  • Dave’s Newport Beach to Sausalito ultra run that sparked the Across the Bay 12K, then called Houlihan’s to Houlihan’s
  • Joe Montana showing up at the first event in 1984 after winning his first Super Bowl
  • The symbolic power of the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Winning a show-down with Vice President Dick Cheney
  • Keeping the roots of this event alive in the age of COVID-19 through a Celebration of Running.
