There's a thing called the Reno-Tahoe Odyssey happening this weekend. It's a "relay run adventure" of 178 miles, counter-clockwise around Lake Tahoe. Teams of 12
runners crazy people run for about 24 hours straight, switching off every 3-5 miles. My wife, armed with bear mace because she's paranoid, will be one of them. Her team starts Friday at high noon. Good luck to the crazies!
