If you have been to Lake Tahoe or live in the area, you have likely heard of Mt. Rose. It is the highest peak on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe and stands at 10,776 feet above sea level. What you may not have heard of though is Mount Houghton or Relay Peak, both of which are challenging climbs and reward you with some amazing views. I set out for a hike… Read More

Disclaimer: I have a complete running high right now so this post might seem a little scattered. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about the epic race this morning! Today was the Rock Tahoe Half Marathon and it could not have been a more amazing race. It was such a great morning, there were wonderful people, and the race organizers totally nailed it! Unless something horrible prevents… Read More

I’m still recovering from the totally epic race this past weekend, the Lake Tahoe Relay. The first year we had a team together was 2007 and we have managed to do it almost every year since. The DeCelle Memorial Lake Tahoe Relay is the oldest distance relay in the country and this was the 51st year. I hope that it continues on for a very long time, because it is by far… Read More

I had my first big race of the season yesterday, The Lake Tahoe Relay! It was a very hot day for Lake Tahoe, with temperatures in the 80s, but I still managed to finish about :30/mile faster than my goal! I was fortunate enough to run with a team of inspiring and fun coworkers and friends, which made for a great day. Above is a picture of some of us above Emerald… Read More

Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? Are you doing anything fun? Yes and yes, for me! There are only hours till the Lake Tahoe Relay and I have to say, I haven’t looked forward to a race this much in years, regular pre-race nerves aside. This will be the fifth time I have participated in this race, but I’ve missed out on it the past two years. Last year I was… Read More

A day like today is just calling for comfort food. It is raining in Lake Tahoe (which I absolutely love) and I had to go to my favorite place in the whole-wide world, the dentist. One of my goals for this year was to start going to the dentist again… I may or may not have gone like 8 years without going… Anyways, I am back on track and just had a… Read More

Only one week left till my first big race of the season! This time next week, I will have finished the Lake Tahoe Relay and looking forward to the Rock Tahoe Half Marathon the following weekend. I am a little nervous about back-to-back races, but I am feeling excited at the same time. I haven’t had a “big” race (over 5k) in two years and I love the feeling that comes with… Read More

It seems like there is a national holiday for just about everything these days. National Brownie Day, National Leave Work Early Day (that was yesterday in case you missed it…I did), National Talk Like a Pirate Day, National Ball Point Pen Day (really?), the list goes on… However, one day that I can totally get behind is National Running Day, which happens to be today. Lucky you! National Running Day was designated… Read More

Mt. Tallac, or “Great Mountain” as translated in Washoe, is the highest peak closest to the shores of Lake Tahoe. It stands 9,735’ above sea level and this weekend I stood on the tippy top to make it just over 9,740’ for a second. The trail to reach the top is one of the most strenuous in the area, but the views are worth every burning step. Hello calves and hamstrings! I… Read More
