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

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

Finally! We're all moved into our new house, and a couple of classes that I am teaching ended.  Not only have I had a chance to breathe this week, but I was also finally able to get in a great trail run.  One of things I love best about summertime in Tahoe is trail running.  Starting this summer off on the Emigrant!

RTO Wrap-up

What a great way to end May!  I ran the RTO with the Tahoe Trail Babes again this year.  Love this team!  We finished 11th place overall and 2nd in the Open Women's category.  I felt much stronger this year.  My Achilles wasn't bothering me, and I think I'm in better shape (at least mentally) than last year.  I averaged between a 7:30-7:35 pace for all 3 of my legs -- which matched right up with the team's overall pace (7:32).  Considering some of the hills I had to climb (like Emerald Bay), I am happy with that!

Congrats to all my other running buddies who ran the RTO this year!
Now time to start planning for NYC -- just 5 short months away!
