I ran leg 4 of the 48th annual De Celle Memorial Lake Tahoe Relays 73 miles around Lake Tahoe in 7 legs. My leg was the longest and started just east of Incline Village in Nevada and finished a couple miles west of Kings Beach. My goal was to run sub 1:30 and my first mile was 6:46 and I passed one team. At that point we were in 13th place out of 112 teams. I slowed a bit to a 7:05 mile two and from there ran pretty steady at effort with even a couple walk breaks on a rather brutal hill half way thru. Surprisingly, I ran a 6:53 mile 7 with no downhill which was good because I was fading in the elevation with later miles in the high 7's. I did better than last year and improved on last year's leg time but I still felt I could have done more. The elevation creates a 39 second per mile drag and it is just plain hard to get a breath at 6,300 ft. Our masters team finished 1st in our division for the third straight year and 14th overall with a time around the Lake of 8 hours and fifty three minutes. Starting at 7 am we finished at 3:53.
