Jogged to Novato today, made it about 10 miles before intestinal discomfort combined with muscular pain convinced me to walk. Just as I got onto the offramp at Atherton, a Marin sheriff pulled up and told me to stop. I gave him my first name on request, but then balked and asserted my rights. He searched me over my objections and found my ID. He's K. Jones, badge #1449. Eventually he and his sergeant seemed to believe me that the highway is legal to walk there, because I didn't get a citation and got a ride back to Petaluma. I'm angry and feeling violated and dirty. This shit has got to stop.
