Team Off Balance!
After hitting all the bases we took one last group picture before splitting up in our 2 vans.
Each van has 6 runners for 12 team members that run 3 legs each. The legs are all different. Our team captain (Tina) threw me under the bus and gave me 7.53 miles, 8 something miles and 7 something miles.
I’m in van #2 with
Tina from Carrots n Cake
Me from my mom’s belly
Theodora from Losing Weight in the City
Elizabeth from On Tap For Today
Anne from Fannetastic Food
Ashley from Healthy Happier Bear
Even though I wanted to nap I had to have one because it keeps you running.
No cup holders no problem.
We ate lunch at Panera around 1pm.
Sarah rocked it and handed off to Tina!
I was very nervous that I was going to get lost. The direction signs look like this. They are posted fairly often, but it’s not at all the same as running the usual road race where you are surrounded my people and the roads are closed.
Finally it was my turn to run! The first 4 miles were down hill except one RIDICULOUS HILL. It killed my quads and I was spend for the rest of the run. I ended up putting the team ahead 5 minutes from our estimated time though! I rocked it.
But, I left A LOT out there and now I’m worried I didn’t leave enough in the tank for the next 2 legs!
This ish is bananas.
