Victor Ballesteros was the second place finisher at the inaugural Tahoe 200 mile Endurance Race beginning on Friday, September 5, 2014.  This 100-hour limited run circumnavigates Lake Tahoe in California.  With over 39,800 feet (12,131 meters) of ascent and 39,800 feet of descent, it proved to be one heck of a challenge for the 90 warriors that toed the line.
