        Had fun last year, too.  50 miles is enough - those that do that loop 2x for the 100 are mentally tough for certain.

          Tahoe is an amazingly beautiful course. And very, very difficult. I did the 100, and it messed me up. I've been dealing with injuries ever since.

           

          You should totally do 100.

            From the TRT FB page:

             

            Good afternoon from Lake Tahoe. Over 400 registered in under 16 hours. Based on past registration numbers and the waiting list we're going to hold registration open until 600. After 600 we'll switch to the waiting list. If you're planning to register please do so very soon. If you know anyone who has been thinking about it please spread the word.

             

            You have been warned.

                    I just put myself on the wait list. We'll see how it goes. If it's anything like Cascade Crest I might have a chance. Last year CC100 went through all 70 wait list folks.

                      I'm in. They let some waitlisters in already. Time do some climbing.

                            I've been thinking about running the wonderland trail and have been looking for someone crazy enough to run with
