Google Maps always underestimates traffic times on the peninsula. I'd count on at least an hour an a half, maybe more. Luckily, you're going partially anti-commute and pretty early, so the first part won't be too bad. I'd also suggest looking at 280. It never is as slow as 101, so you can easily make up the extra few miles it'll cost you.
