Due to work and an oversight on my part my vacation plans were messed up. The original plan was for the family to spend a week at our cabin. My friend Jim was going on vacation and offered us a room when he heard my problem. Jim and family were going to the Hyatt in Incline Village for a week. The family and I had gone in 2008 it is the place to be to relax.
I was able to run a bit and experience the effects of altitude before TRT. The next to last day I ran a 10 miler with part of the run the Tunnel Creek Trail which is an approximate 3mile climb. Here are some photos for the run:
Along the way I met Vicki who is in the second picture. She's a local stud, yoga instructor and all around nice person who runs TWO repeats of this climb as part of her standard running. As we talked and ran, I was huffing and puffing and she was just fine.
I was pleased to find I wasn't as worthless as usual at altitude. I'm hoping this holds true for next weekedn at TRT.
I finished the run at Sand Harbor where the Cheetah was the Goose whisperer:
While there the Cheetah completed her first cliff jump off large rock piles in the lake. The final jump we did was a long drop to the water, I was scared the first jump but she was all smiles.
The fun we had also included a Jetski run the previous day where we ejected ourselves on one run. The kid had smiles the whole time, I think she is evolving into daredevil.
I used to own a Jetski, after seeing how much fun we had I think I'll be looking for a new one for next season.
