Tahoe Rim 100

I believe there was about 55 finishers out of 111 starters — that’s almost a 50% drop rate. The weather was warm, and the course was dry/dusty — especially compared to 2006 when I last ran it. No snow or any significant mud, and just a hint of smoke down around the Red House section. There was a lot of stomach issues, yours truly not being exempt — any thoughts about a theory of something being bad at one of the aids. It reminds me of Vermont last year when I (along with several other runners) had issues with the water.

Congratulations to everyone. Catra and I finished in just over 32 hours — this was our 5th 100 miler of the year, and our 3rd we ran together.
