Visiting Tahoe (my home town)

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

I'm in Tahoe for a visit. I am visiting my family here. I have not been back since I left for school in August last year. The drive was rough with my cat Lucy. She hates the car! But I made it here safe and sound.

I went for a run yesterday but forgot one thing: altitude! I forgot that I am no longer adapted to the high altitude. I remembered half way through my first mile as I started huffing and puffing as if I was speeding through my tenth mile! What a difference. I was trying to run 5 miles (part of a 10k training program) but only made it 3.25 miles. I also posted my slowest mile yet. Yikes! I think by running up here it will make me even better and faster when I get back down to sea level.

It is nice visiting home. I am trying my best to stick to my calorie limits and workouts. It is snowing today so I don't think a run is in the cards! It sure is beautiful though! I've sure missed the snow. It is so peaceful to watch the flakes float down. I'm lucky to see it because it is so late in the year for snow. Love it!!

Keep on sparkin on y'all!

    you'll get use to the altitude in no time! Tahoe is great, lots of active things to do and lots of active people. I adore it there, I am hopefully going up this weekend!
