Photos from the Lake Tahoe Marathon, Sept 29, 2007

Day 3 of the Tahoe Triple is the official Lake Tahoe Marathon. It runs on bike trails and highway 89 along the west shore of Lake Tahoe south from Tahoe City to South Lake Tahoe through mostly mature forest and a few small towns. While the northbound lane of the highway was closed to most traffic the southbound lane was packed with cars and busses for most of the race. Very scenic course with a couple of big hills between miles 14 and 20 but no net elevation change. One to two inches of snow fell the night before the race so the course was icy and snowy in shady places. I was surprised how fast I ran, taking 10 minutes of my time from day 2.
