I’ve been off the radar while we worked to get the Reno Collective moved and running in its new location. I’ve never done anything remotely like relocating a coworking space, and it’s been a fantastic learning experience. With Ann managing the space, the collective will remain a huge part of our lives.
Before opening the new space a bunch of us ran the 178-mile Reno-Tahoe Odyssey relay race. There were 257 teams this year. Like last year it was a great, exhausting experience. I ran the infamous “dog valley” leg, pushing hard in the 2pm heat and surprising myself with a 17th place finish on that leg, the only one they rank individually. My last leg went well also, with another runner right behind me pushing the whole way. Shortly after that, I got hit with the worst allergy attack of my life, which lasted three days and still revisits me now and then.
Our team members were all in great shape, and despite a minor injury we finished 39th in 24 hours 19 minutes. My friend Alli ran the same legs I did and wrote up a great post describing what it’s like to run all night.
Perhaps normal output will now resume.
