For love of the mountains

View of Sand Harbor

View of Sand HarborWith my marathon done (report coming soon!), a few inches of snow here in Reno, and plenty more in the mountains, I’m longing for summer already, and a return to the trails I love running high above Lake Tahoe.

For now… a running video will have to do.
