Lake Tahoe Half Marathon Round 2

September was a busy running month for me.  Two weeks after the Emerald Bay trail run I found myself doing this.

Last year I ran the Lake Tahoe Half Marathon, and this year I decided to do it all over again.  This was my fourth half marathon.  And while I didn’t do my personal best time, I improved my time greatly from last year, and I completed the race with much less difficulty than usual.  So woohoo!

The race wasn’t complete without a piper to start it all off….

half2

The first big challenge was the aptly named Hill From Hell.  500 foot elevation gain in 2 miles.  UGH!

half3

But another visit with the piper was enough to keep me going.

The scenery was lovely as always as well.

half6

And the best part of all?  When it was finally all over.  🙂
