Tahoe Rim Tour!

Today was the amazing rescheduled Tahoe Rim Tour Race!  Surprisingly the striding conditions held up great!  Thank you to all the volunteers who made the event happen.  August finished first, Gud Second, Jordon Third, Me Fourth! We all had the really sticky kick wax on our feet and smiles on our faces. I’m going to wish I put sunscreen on my arms and face cause the sun was high in the sky.  Congratulations to everyone who participated in this great Far West fundraiser!  Next week is the Billy Dutton Uphill that is a Far West Fundraiser as well so show up and support!
