Lake Tahoe half marathon 2010

First of all it's gorgeous!!! Beautiful day and beautiful vistas. Very good organization. Except little misunderstanding with transportation to a race start. Which was solved on the spot by volunteers.  Lots of water stops, nice race T-shirts, gifts, info, etc.

Boletus....at last

       At last. After some rains porcini (boletus edulus) season is kicking in.  It's nice to find these gigantic mushrooms after dealing only with chantarelles for the last couple of weeks. Nothing's wrong with chantarelles, they are not a bad mushroom at all......especially if prepared with freshly caught crab, carrots, onions and served with soba.....

2010 Whale run: 7th out of 131 & 3rd out of 16

     42:43.3 for 10K. Not bad after late night and some beers.... another mistake I made was too warm clothes.... after half a distance I felt too hot. Even it was early, brisk, cloudy morning (start 0830 am), but after some minutes it got sunny and really warm.... But....oh well......
