Lake Tahoe Relay: A Snapshot

We ran the DeCelle Memorial Lake Tahoe Relay this past Saturday, and most of us are still experiencing its afterglow.

In this photo, we're missing one person from our team - our fastest person, who we nicknamed the 'Taminator' because of the no-nonsense way she put away runners - but the rest of us are here.

I was and am still sick - have a pretty bad head and chest cold - so I took the easiest leg. Peter did a great job with the toughest leg - Leg 6, which has a 2-mile hill.

Overall, we ran 3 minutes faster than last year. Will give a more comprehensive update by tomorrow.


  1. Aww, thanks for the shoutout but let's not be too giddy about my 9:19 miles (it was a tough uphill though) or too modest about your 1:27:39 time for 10.3 miles (8:31), a pace barely behind our rock star Tami's (8:24) when you were gasping so bad with your upper respiratory ailment that you literally couldn't breath as you ran. That's tough running on a tough course, Bex! This flatland team from sealevel did great in taking time off of last year's total and it was a real accomplishment for each runner to bring home his or her leg on this rugged course at 6200 feet base altitude with its climbs to over 7,000 feet. Thanks for setting up the BOO.

  2. I love it when you have to rely on the older guy to carry the heavy water. Good job Peter ... and the rest of the team. Better is always better.
