For the 4th time, I traveled to the Lake Tahoe area and ran in the Tahoe Rim Trail 100. This race keeps drawing me back to it because of its beauty, challenge, and single track trails. The course runs up along the ridges on the east portion of the lake above Incline Village. This year they added a new challenging twist. The course needed to be altered because of a permit problem, so we were able to run on new trails for the race, including a brutal climb straight up a ski resort run.
