Jana Matthews Runs Around Lake Tahoe

Jana Matthews runs around Lake Tahoe
My lovely wife, Jana Matthews, just ran around Lake Tahoe. That's right, all the way around, and it's a big lake if you haven't heard. 72 miles around the perimeter, not an easy run. Okay, so it was more of a very brisk walk than actually running, but it's still pretty impressive if you ask me, not some walk in the park that any joker could do. It took her many days, enduring all kinds of weather conditions like sunny, party cloudy, mostly cloudy and partly sunny. As you can see many people began the journey. (They're represented by all the masses of humanity on the left of the picture.)

But very few made it the entire way. Approximately four and there were also a couple that turned around and went back, but they're not pictured for showing off. Weather could have played a factor for those that couldn't rise to the challenge, not to mention the vastness of what 72 miles really means. Oh sure, it's easy to say, "I think I'll go walk around Lake Tahoe," but it's another thing to actually do it. It's like starting a New Year's Day resolution and being pretty good about it for, like the first few days, and then just going back to those old, lazy routines. But not Jana; she's got determination and follow-through.

Just in case you think I'm fibbing, here's a close-up of Jana at the finish line where California meets Nevada and people like to gamble away their hard-earned money. She's the pink one on top. Yeah, the picture's a little fuzzy, but that's really her. I know what you're probably thinking, how could you be married to a little piece of paper? But I don't see it that way. I love her for who she is inside, and that's a very special being who just happened to walk around Lake Tahoe. Go girl!

Hah, had you going there for a minute. She's really real. And I'm a lucky guy, not some schmuck married to a little piece of pink paper. Besides, paper cut-outs can't really walk around Lake Tahoe anyway. But Jana can-a.

Nice going, babe. I love you.
