Starting tomorrow afternoon I will be joining an all-star cast of Tahoe athletes for the Annual 177.6 mile relay race around the Reno/Tahoe area. I will have three legs totaling 14 miles in about a 14 hour time period and make it to work Saturday. We are shooting for a mixed team record. There are 99 teams total signed up right now, including two from Anchorage.
