Last year, I was able to convince a few friends in South Lake Tahoe to join me in a run up Ski Run Blvd from the Blue Angel Café to Himmel Haus. It was dark. And cold, despite the extra layer of red velvet over my running tights. But we had a blast!

There were, ahem, beverages available before we started, and more beverages ande delicious food when we arrived at Himmel Haus. It was such a fun time; even more people are excited to make the run this year!
