Day 27 - McCarranathon

In which I earn the name of my blog and actually DO run around Reno.

I did this run last year, only clockwise - thought I'd try it counterclockwise this year. Basically, I head up Keystone Avenue from my house, then go all the way around McCarran (Reno's ring road) back to Keystone. Going counter-clockwise got the big Caughlin Ranch hill out of the way early, which was nice. After that, it was just a grind through Sparks and back home.

Got a great elevation profile, too...

And in the lost and found department - the Reno Rodeo is in town this, week, and I think some drunk cowbow probably drove off from somewhere with his hat on top of his truck last night. Found this sweet hat near the end of my run; went back and got it after I was done. Wonder how it'll look with those glasses?
