Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Ultra Fun!

Once again I got to be a part of an amazing ultra run -- the Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Run.  I jumped in and ran with Cynthia for the last 20 miles of her first 50-miler.  She did awesome!  All of the TRT running buddies did well today.  Way to go, Sara, Jim, Andy, Paul, Jenny (& the other pacers, Vicky, Jim and Liz)!

A quick shout out to all the volunteers, too, but especially the rockin' Tunnel Creek Aid Station!  Thanks, Micheline, Mike and the Capels for all your help out there today!

I am really impressed with the ultra running community.  Everyone is so friendly and supportive!  And, if you're not quite sure if you are ready to take the plunge into the world of ultra running, pacing is a great way to get your feet wet.  I might just be looking for a few pacers myself next year!  ;)

 Bringin' it home!

NSETers!  Happy to be done!

Runner's High

This month just keeps getting better!  Four more fabulous trail runs were logged this week.  I'm grateful my friend, Sara, is around to show me all these treasures!  (Hi Sara!)

Incline Flume
Cyn, Sara & I ran into my friend, Tim, on his bike (again).

Castle Peak
A group of 9 of us took on this majestic mountain!

Running in Tahoe is breath-taking -- literally & figuratively!
A true runner's high!

Into Thin Air

July is off to an awesome start!  Three fun Tahoe runs this week already.  My fingers are crossed that I can squeeze another one in tomorrow, too!  The best part is we are staying in Tahoe for the next couple of weeks.  Running in Tahoe every day = a dream come true!

Fourth of July Run to the Beach 10K
1st in my age group!

A little Desolation Wilderness fun with the ladies!

Another epic Rim Trail run with my TRT buddies!
Mt. Rose to Brockway

Lovin' every minute and every mile!
Looking forward to many more!
